Welcome to the PyCLIPS Home Page

PyCLIPS is an extension module for the Python language that embeds full CLIPS functionality in Python applications. This means that you can provide Python with a strong, reliable, widely used and well documented inference engine.

Actually, CLIPS is often taken as "reference implementation" of an expert systems shell by many programmers and groups involved in AI development. It has a forward chaining rule-based inference system, as well as all imperative and object-oriented constructs that allow full control the execution flow. PyCLIPS aims at becoming a reliable extension for Python applications, even possibly large ones, that need a rule-based inference engine.

This page is the primary access point to the PyCLIPS download site, where you will find the source (released under the LGPL), binary versions and the documentation. You can also access the project page on SourceForge. At the top of every page in this site you will find buttons (links) that will redirect you to the online documentation and to the project and download pages.

Every kind of help is welcome: from reviewing the source code to sending bug reports to the authors.
