README file for Pymacs
*Pymacs 0.23 is now imminent. The manual is in reST format, there is
a small validation suite, reported bugs have been squashed. Yet, some
suggestions have been postponed, to be pondered. I'm warmly thanking
all contributors and collaborators!*
Pymacs is a powerful tool which, once started from Emacs, allows
both-way communication between Emacs Lisp and Python. Pymacs aims
Python as an extension language for Emacs rather than the other way
around, and this asymmetry is reflected in some design choices. Within
Emacs Lisp code, one may load and use Python modules. Python functions
may themselves use Emacs services, and handle Emacs Lisp objects kept in
Emacs Lisp space.
The Pymacs manual offers installation instructions, a detailed
description of the API usage, examples, and also pointers to other
Pymacs sites or projects. Both HTML and PDF formats may be found here:
The latest *official* Pymacs distribution may be fetched from:
*Beware* that it does not currently work with Python 2.5. This is
solved with the incoming release. Other distributions, either older,
or beta tests for the next one, are available in this directory:
If you feel in play mood, there is a reachable copy of my own sandbox
repository for Pymacs. I experiment with it, branches may be reset at
any time. The server might not even be up (then just tell me!). To get
your own copy, try::
git clone git://
