#436 closed enhancement (wontfix)

access to python swig bindingsa from outside of a grass session

Reported by: mulligan Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Python Version: svn-develbranch6
Keywords: python, SWIG, session Cc:
CPU: x86-32 Platform: Linux


The SWIG bindings to Python are very useful from inside GRASS but would be much more powerful if python could access GRASS functions from outside a grass session.

I note the following in the TODO file at ""

  • enable calls from outside GRASS

"" If this is now possible (in 6.4.0 or 7.0.0) could a relevant example be posted to show how we can access from outside a grass session?

Many thanks

you just need some environment variables set to mimic a grass session.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

SWIG support is removed, try ctypes in devel versions of GRASS instead.
