pysdl2-cffi is a Python wrapper for SDL2 written using cffi, featuring:
- A cffi + dlopen interface to the underlying SDL2 libraries.
- Automatically generated, consistent helper functions for SDL2, SDL_image, SDL_mixer, and SDL_ttf that hide most allocation and dereferencing.
- Useful docstrings on every function, including the C function signature and (for SDL2 only) the library's original doxygen documentation reformatted as Sphinx restructured text.
- A small collection of libSDL2's original example / test programs converted to Python using Eric S. Raymond's ctopy.
The goal is to provide a flat, consistent, faithful-to-C binding with some more-Pythonic renaming and conveniences.
This wrapper won't contain anything that doesn't directly translate to part of the library's API. The goal is to be a dependency for something like pygame, not a replacement.
This library should be compatible with Linux, OSX and Windows.
This library is licensed under the GPLv2 or (at your option) any later version. Alternatively a commercial license can be purchased from the author for a nominal fee.
