 * [[http://www.codeplex.com/IronPython|IronPython]] is an implementation of Python for .net, which allows you to import .net class libraries seamlessly in Python.

[Hint: The idea is to create pages for the stuff, not just link it.]


There a various tools which make it easier to bridge the gap between Python and C/C++:

  • SWIG - generate extension module from your .h files

  • boost.python - write (tiny) C++ class to wrap your classes in an extension module

  • Pyrex - write your extension module on Python (!)

  • CXX

  • SCXX

  • weave - include C code lines in Python program

  • SIP - similar to SWIG but specialised for Python and C++. Used to create PyQt, the Qt API wrapper library

  • ctypes is a Python module allowing to create and manipulate C data types in Python. These can then be passed to C-functions loaded from dynamic link libraries.

  • elmer - compile and run python code from C, as if it was written in C

  • pwig is a SWIG extension for writting new language modules in Python.

  • PicklingTools is a collection of libraries for exchanging Python Dictionaries between C++ and Python.

  • Jython - Python implemented in Java

  • JPype - Java for CPython

  • Jepp - Java embedded Python


  • ActiveState research

  • Python for .NET is a near-seamless integration of the CPython runtime with the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR).

  • IronPython is an implementation of Python for .net, which allows you to import .net class libraries seamlessly in Python.

For converting/porting Perl code to Python the tool 'Bridgekeeper' http://www.crazy-compilers.com/bridgekeeper/ may be handy.




  • elmer - compile and run python code from Tcl, as if it was written in Tcl

  • TclPython - a Python package for Tcl allows execution of Python (version 2.2 or above) code from a Tcl interpreter.

  • Tcl and other languages - Tcl's equivalent of this page.


  • LunaticPython - a two-way bridge between Python and Lua.

  • Lux - a mutant Lua emphasizing interoperation with Python, Perl, etc.


  • Pycaml - write Python extension modules in OCaml (instead of C), and use Python code and native libraries from OCaml programs.

Eiffel and Haskell

Other (applications)

to name a few. There are much more...
