Wrap existing D code for use in other languages
To use this package, put the following dependency into your project's dependencies section:
Wrap existing D code for use in other environments such as Python and Excel.
In PyD, the functions and data structures must be registered manually,
and while the same isn't true of excel-d, the latter wraps everything
in the modules reflected on. When writing code specifically for Excel,
that is clearly what the user wants (and if not it can be made
When wrapping pre-existing D code, however, it makes sense to opt-in instead
by requiring functions to be wrapped to be marked
There is ppyd that makes the effort required to use pyd a lot less but that requires using a UDA. Again, when writing code specifically for Python use this makes sense, but adds a dependency that "dirties" pre-existing D code.
This dub package makes it possible to wrap pre-existing D code "from the outside", imposing no dependencies on the aforementioned body of work.
autowrap also does away with the boilerplate necessary to creating a Python extension with PyD. Things should just work.
To wrap for Python, make a dub dynamicLibrary project with one file:
import autowrap.python; mixin( wrapAll( LibraryName("mylibrary"), Modules("my.module1", "my.module2", /* ... */), ) );
Assuming the dub package name is also "mylibrary", you should get libmylibrary.so/mylibrary.dll. If the former, rename it to mylibrary.so and you'll be able to use it from Python:
import mylibrary mylibrary.func1()
The camelCase D functions are wrapped by snake_case Python functions, but struct members have the same names.
To wrap for Excel:
import autowrap.excel; mixin( wrapAll!( "my.module1", "my.module2", /* ... */ ) );
The camelCase D functions will be PascalCase in Excel.
Since autowrap depends on PyD, the python version must be explicitly stated
as a dub configuration and defaults to 3.6. To use another version, pass
-c $CONFIG to dub where
$CONFIG is one of:
