= 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.

The bindings are compiled against the following libraries:

  * python (Python 2.6+/3.0+, or PyPy (not tested))
  * efl (1.8)
  * elementary (1.8, optional)
  * python-dbus (0.83+, optional)

The setup script detects your installed libraries and builds bindings according to those found.

To install the bindings run:

  (sudo) python setup.py install


To generate the documentation locally you need:

  * sphinx (1.0+)
  * graphviz (optional)

To build the documentation:

  python setup.py build_doc


For more information on available build options see:

  python setup.py --help
