Welcome to the exciting new Python-flavored future of Magnum! Have fun, but please note this functionality is heavily experimental at the moment. Most APIs are missing, documentation is very sparse and everything is still evolving. Use at your own risk.

Magnum Python bindings

Lightweight and modular graphics middleware for games and data visualization.

This site documents the Python bindings for the Magnum project. To see high-level feature overview, project goals or read the developer blog, head over to the project homepage.

Getting started

Because it’s out of human capabilities to maintain the Python documentation at the same scale as the C++ documentation including all math equations, best practices and such, most of the Python documentation is written as a delta to the C++ docs — highlighting important differences and describing general conventions, but referring to documentation of underlying C++ APIs for all details.

See the building docs for an installation guide, API convention documentation and documentation of each module for more information about the actual usage. There are also examples to give you an idea about how the API feels.
