pyobjc / ReadMe.rst

Welcome to the PyObjC repository

This repository contains a number of Python packages/distributions for the PyObjC project:

  • 'pyobjc': a meta package that is used for easy installation using easy_install or pip
  • 'pyobjc-core': the actual bridge
  • 'pyobjc-framework-*': wrappers for specific frameworks (or sets of frameworks)
  • 'pyobjc-xcode': Mostly unmaintained Xcode templates for Python projects

Supported Python versions

PyObjC is regularly tested using Python 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3.

Python 2.6 and 3.1 should also work, but aren't tested as much.

I'm also regularly testing using the development version of Python (3.4), although support for 3.4 might be broken when there are large changes in the implementation.

PyPy, Jython and IronPython are not supported, and it is unlikely that this will change anytime soon.


The easiest way to install PyObjC from the repository is by using the "" script next to this file.

First create a check-out:

$ hg clone

Then perform the installation:

$ pythonX.Y pyobjc/
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
