Python-EFL 1.24.0 release

Python-EFL 1.24.0 release

We are pleased to announce that Python-EFL 1.24.0 is now released and available for download.


To install unzip the tarball and run:

python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install

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:

What's New

As always new features of EFL have been ported and the usual has been done in fixing bugs, optimizing speed and improve documentation. (see ChangeLog in the tarball for the full list of changes)

Building and Dependencies

If you have existing Python-EFL 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+/3.2+)
  • efl (1.24)
  • python-dbus (0.83+)

If you wish to compile using the Cython sources a required dependency is:

  • cython (0.28+)

To install the bindings run:

(sudo) python setup.py install


(sudo) python3 setup.py install

To generate the documentation locally you need:

  • sphinx (1.1+)
  • graphviz (optional)

To build the documentation:

python setup.py build_doc

For more information on available build options see:

python setup.py --help
