Extension HelpersΒΆ

The extension-helpers package includes convenience helpers to assist with building Python packages with compiled C/Cython extensions. It is developed by the Astropy project but is intended to be general and usable by any Python package.

This is not a traditional package in the sense that it is not intended to be installed directly by users or developers. Instead, it is meant to be accessed when the setup.py command is run and should be defined as a build-time dependency in pyproject.toml files.
