Re: [yast-devel] Re: YaST bindings for Python3?
Hi Kshitij,
at first congratulation to look at our python bindings. I expect that
you see there a lot of sharp edges. In fact, now there is no maintainer
for python bindings, so if you want to take care of it, I would welcome
it. I can help you with understanding how it works from liby2 side ( y2
is component system to which is bindings attached ). I recommend you to
look at ruby bindings[1] that is now complete to cooperate with rest of
component system ( so ycp, perl or python modules ).
Project is available at github [2] and after few good commit (it is not
maintained, but we want to keep some basic code quality ) I think you
can get push rights.

I spent some trying to figure out a way to port the bindings to
Python3. I patched some config files (which I forked from cboltz's
branch) to build the bindings with Python3. Then I realised that the
C++ code needs to be modified too to match the Python3 C API. I found
the following site, which guides on migrating code to Python:

Maybe somebody more familiar with the code-base can make the code
compatible with both Python2 and 3 with some effort.
Hope that might be helpful.

Hello everyone,

I am Kshitij and I'm working on Profile Tools for AppArmor using
Python3 under Google Summer of Code'13.

This may have been asked before, but I tried searching on the net
and asking on the IRC channel too but could not find an answer.

The present tools (in Perl) have a YaST interface besides the CLI,
as I'm re-writing them in Python3 (Python 3.3 to be precise) and a
few additional tools I also have to interface with YaST. I was able
to find yast2-bindings for python but they are for Python2.7, but
not for Python3.

I would be very grateful if somebody can help me in this regard.
