15.0 > Python > python3-cmake-build-extension (0.5.1)

cmake-build-extension is a Setuptools extension to build and package
CMake projects.

This project aims to simplify the integration of C++ projects based on
CMake with Python packaging tools. CMake provides out-of-the-box
support to either SWIG and pybind11, that are two among the most used
projects to create Python bindings from C++ sources.

If you have any experience with these hybrid projects, you know the
challenges to make packaging right! This project takes inspiration
from pre-existing examples (pybind/cmake_example, among many others)
and provides a simple, flexible, and reusable setuptools extension
with the following features:

* Bridge between CMake projects and Python packaging.
* Configure and build the CMake project from
* Install the CMake project in the resulting Python package.
* Allow passing custom CMake options.
* Allow creating a top-level
* Expose C++ executables to the Python environment.
* Provide a context manager to import reliably CPython modules on
all major OSs.
* Disable the C++ extension in editable installations (requiring to
manually call CMake to install the C++ project).
