Dijitso was written to improve a core component of the FEniCS
framework, namely the just in time compilation of C++ code that is
generated from Python modules, but is only called from within a C++
library, and thus do not need wrapping in a nice Python interface.
The main approach of dijitso is to use ctypes to import the dynamic
shared library directly with no attempt at wrapping it in a Python
As long as the compiled code can provide a simple factory function to
a class implementing a predefined C++ interface, there is no limit to
the complexity of that interface as long as it is only called from
C++ code, If you want a Python interface to your generated code,
dijitso is probably not the answer.
Although dijitso serves a very specific role within the FEniCS
project, it does not depend on other FEniCS components.
The parallel support depends on the mpi4py interface, although mpi4py
is not actually imported within the dijitso module so it would be
possible to mock the communicator object with a similar interface.
This package installs the library for Python 2.
