Build and Installation

Getting the Module

The Python module source codes along with some samples are included in PJSIP distribution, in pjproject/pjsip-apps/src/python directory.

Building The Modules



  1. Python: this normally should have been installed on every Linux.
  2. Python development package, to build the C extension.

Building the Module

Using Python build script:

  1. Build the PJSIP libraries first with the usual "./configure && make dep && make" commands.
  2. Go to pjsip-apps/src/python directory.
  3. Run 'sudo python ./ install' or just sudo make'''

Sample session:

   $ cd your-pjsip-root-dir
   $ ./configure && make dep && make
   $ cd pjsip-apps/src/python
   $ sudo make

Microsoft Windows


  1. Python SDK
  2. Optional: debug package

Building the Module

Using Microsoft Visual Studio projects:

  1. Open pjsip-apps.dsw from pjsip-apps\build directory.
  2. Select python_pjsua project as the active project.
  3. Build the project
  4. The _pjsua.pyd Python module will be placed in pjsip-apps\lib directory.
  5. Copy _pjsua.pyd and from pjsip-apps\src\python directory to Python's site_packages directory (see Python manual for this), or alternatively add the directories where these files reside to your PYTHONPATH environment variable.
