MetadataDictionary access from target languages

  • modify itkMetaDataDictionary.h to add those methods:
 + MetaDataObjectBase::Pointer & Get(const std::string &) const;
 + void Set(const std::string &, MetaDataObjectBase * );
 + std::vector< std::string > Keys() const;
  • add a specific language customization for python, to make the metadata accessible in a more usual way.
 + a __setitem__() method to add/modify a metadata in the dictionary
 + a __len__() method to return the number of metadata in the dictionary
 + a __getitem__() method - this one should take care to down cast the object to its real type
 + a __str__() method to print the content of the dictionary
 + a __iter__() method to return every elements in the dictionary one by one
  • github commits
    • a6ac0ee ENH: Throw an itkGenericException if the key does not exist

Tcl SmartPointers

Look at how SmartPointers are replaced by swig proxy objects in python and java and explore the possibility to do the same in Tcl to decrease the build time of WrapITK.

not ready for beta.

Fix Installation

  • They are currenly in /usr/local/lib/cmake/ITK-4.0/WrapITK -- that's not good
  • Option ${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}/lib/ITK-4.0/ accepted in the ITK developers list
    • Put all wrapITK libraries here along with libraries of other packages. We won't require versioned names.
  • Gerrit-Push

Ready for Beta

Remove the USE_WRAP_ITK option

  • Enabling a language in cmake should be enough.

Not for Beta.

Build swig as an external project

  • As it's done for gccxml.
  • If you look in the gerrit abandoned patch, you will find a change proposed by Kent Williams which can be partially reused.

Ready for Beta

Integrate WrapITK in the ITK modularization

  • First step - Restructure the WrapITK Libraries directory to look it similar to the Modules directory here

Ready for Beta
