This is a port of the clang Python bindings to Python 3. I strive to be as close as possible to the Python 2 bindings; in fact, the unit tests are exactly the same except for one minor difference in io (which is due to changes in the Python API.)

This release of the library is compatible with Clang 3.9.

You may need to alter LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that the Clang library can be found. The unit tests are designed to be run with 'nosetests'. For example:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$(llvm-config-3.9 --libdir) nosetests3 -v


This build is synced against 3.9 upstream.


On Ubuntu, you need the python3-nose package. You can install it using sudo apt-get install python3-nose. Alternatively, you can download it using pip.
