    I’ve set up configuration to use the SWIG tool (http://www.swig.org) to autogenerate a Python interface to the Kinova API. You can try it here: http://github.com/MobileRobots/kinova-api-python

    The one major issue with it right now is that the Swig tool cannot parse some of the code in the normal Kinova API header files, but I already modified them for use in another project, see the README for how to use those instead.

    I’ve only tried it with a few aspects of the Kinova API, namely angular and cartesian positions with Jaco2 arms. If anyone encounters a bug or other problem please let me know or use the github issue tracker.
