Python-EFL 1.12.0 release

Python-EFL 1.12.0 release

We are pleased to announce that Python-EFL 1.12.0 is now released and available for download.


For convenience the tarballs contain both the Cython sources and generated intermediary C sources, meaning you do not need Cython to compile the bindings. Full cython sources are also publicly accessible from our git repository at:

More information about the python bindings can be found at:

Building and Dependencies

If you have existing Python-EFL or the old split 1.7 release bindings installed, you may wish to uninstall them before compiling and installing to avoid possible conflicts during install and/or runtime.

To build the bindings you will need the following libraries:

  • python (Python 2.6+/3.0+)
  • efl (1.12)
  • elementary (1.12)
  • python-dbus (0.83+)

If you wish to compile using the Cython sources:

  • cython (0.19+)

To install the bindings run:

(sudo) python install

To generate the documentation locally you need:

  • sphinx (1.1+)
  • graphviz (optional)

To build the documentation:

python build_doc

For more information on available build options see:

python --help
