The PyObjC project aims to provide a bridge between the Python and Objective-C programming languages.  The bridge is intended to be fully bidirectional, allowing the Python programmer to take full advantage of the power provided by various Objective-C based toolkits and the Objective-C programmer transparent access to Python based functionality.</p>
The most important usage of this is writing Cocoa GUI applications on 
<a href="http://www.apple.com/macosx/">Mac OS X</a> in pure Python. See 
<a href="<? print $root; ?>doc/tutorial.php">our tutorial</a> for an example
of this.

<a href="software/index.php">PyObjC 1.0</a> was released on 8 October 2003.  See the <a href="NEWS-1.0.txt">NEWS</a> for details.

<h1>Platform support</h1>

The development of the bridge is currently focused on 
<a href="http://www.apple.com/macosx/">Mac OS X</a> 10.2 and later. The 
current version has minimal support for MacOS X 10.1, earlier versions are not 
(and will never be) supported.
There is limited support for <a href="http://www.gnustep.org/">GNUstep</a>, 
most of the unittests pass on GNUstep on Linux/ix86. However, we do not yet
support the AppKit framework on GNUstep.
Contact <a href="mailto:pyobjc-dev@lists.sourceforge.net">the mailinglist</a> if you want to help out with GNUstep or MacOS X 10.1 support.


Support is currently limited to <a href="http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/pyobjc-dev">the developer's mailing list</a>.
