WARNING: This project is DEPRECATED
It has been replaced by the multi-platform Python-Apple-support package
Python iOS Support
This is a meta-package for building a version of Python that can be embedded into an iOS, tvOS or watchOS project.
It works by downloading, patching, and building a fat binary OpenSSL and Python, and packaging them both in iOS Framework format.
The binaries support the
$(ARCHS_STANDARD) set - that is, armv7 and
arm64 for iOS devices, arm64 for appleTV devices, and armv7k for watchOS.
This should enable the code to run on:
- iPhone 4s
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 5c
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPad Pro
- iPad 2
- iPad (3rd gen)
- iPad (4th gen)
- iPad Air
- iPad Air 2
- iPad retina
- iPad Mini
- iPad Mini (1st gen)
- iPad Mini 2
- iPad Mini 3
- iPad Mini 4
- iPod Touch
- iPod Touch (4th gen)
- iPod Touch (5th gen)
- iPod Touch (6th gen)
- Apple TV
- 4th gen
- Apple Watch
This repository branch builds a packaged version of Python 3.5.1. Other Python versions are available by cloning other branches of the main repository.
Alternatively, to build the frameworks on your own, download/clone this repository, and then in the root directory, and run:
- make (or make all) to build everything.
- make iOS to build everything for iOS.
- make tvOS to build everything for tvOS.
- make watchOS to build everything for watchOS.
- Download the original source packages
- Patch them as required for compatibility with the selected OS
- Build the packages as XCode-compatible frameworks.
The build products will be in the build directory; the compiled frameworks will be in the dist directory.
