Installation of Py++

Py++ depends on pygccxml, which in turn depends on CastXML. You can install these packages from source yourself, but you can also use package managers. For CastXML there are binaries available at


For Ubuntu 15.10 and newer you can install castxml with sudo apt-get install castxml.

The pygccxml and Py++ packages can be installed with pip (a package manager specifically for Python packages):

sudo apt-get install pip
sudo -H pip install -vU pygccxml


If you use MacPorts on OS X, then Py++ and its dependencies can be installed like so:

sudo port install py27-pyplusplus # if you use python2.7
sudo port install py35-pyplusplus # if you use python3.5
