PythonKit

Swift framework to interact with Python.

Requirements

PythonKit
requires Swift 5 or higher and has been tested on macOS, Linux and Windows.

Usage

Some Python code like this:

import sys

print(f"Python {sys.version_info.major}.{sys.version_info.minor}") print(f"Python Version: {sys.version}") print(f"Python Encoding: {sys.getdefaultencoding().upper()}")

Can be implemented in Swift through PythonKit with the following code:

import PythonKit

let sys = try Python.import("sys")

print("Python (sys.version_info.major).(sys.version_info.minor)") print("Python Version: (sys.version)") print("Python Encoding: (sys.getdefaultencoding().upper())")

Swift Package Manager

Add the following dependency to your

Package.swift
manifest:
.package(url: "https://github.com/pvieito/PythonKit.git", .branch("master")),

Build & Run

PythonKit
can be built with Swift PM:
$ cd PythonKit
$ swift run
[*] Python 3.7
[ ] Version: 3.7.0

The Python library will be loaded at runtime,

PythonKit
will try to find the most modern Python version available in the system. You can force a given version with the
PYTHON_VERSION
environment variable or an specific Python library path or name with
PYTHON_LIBRARY
.
$ PYTHON_VERSION=3 swift run
[*] Python 3.5
[ ] Version: 3.5.2
$ PYTHON_VERSION=2.7 swift run
[*] Python 2.7
[ ] Version: 2.7.10
$ PYTHON_LIBRARY=libpython3.5.so swift run
[*] Python 3.5
[ ] Version: 3.5.2
$ PYTHON_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython2.7.so swift run
[*] Python 2.7
[ ] Version: 2.7.10

If

PythonKit
cannot find and load the Python library you can set the
PYTHON_LOADER_LOGGING
environment variable to know from which locations
PythonKit
is trying to load the library:
$ PYTHON_LOADER_LOGGING=TRUE PYTHON_VERSION=3.8 PythonTool
Loading symbol 'Py_Initialize' from the Python library...
Trying to load library at 'Python.framework/Versions/3.8/Python'...
Trying to load library at '/usr/local/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/Python'...
Fatal error: Python library not found. Set the PYTHON_LIBRARY environment variable with the path to a Python library.

Notes

  • Originally
    PythonKit
    was based on the
    Python
    module from the Swift for TensorFlow project. The mantainers of both projects have been developing them jointly and currently
    PythonKit
    is distributed as part of the Swift for TensorFlow toolchains.
  • If you have questions about
    PythonKit
    you can ask on the Swift for TensorFlow Google Group or on the Swift Forums.
