6. Extending Numba
This chapter describes how to extend Numba to make it recognize and support
additional operations, functions or types. Numba provides two categories
of APIs to this end:
- The high-level APIs provide abstracted entry points which are sufficient
for simple uses. They require little knowledge of Numba’s internal
- The low-level APIs reflect Numba’s internal compilation chain and allow
flexible interaction with its various layers, but require more effort
and experience with Numba internals.
It may be helpful for readers of this chapter to also read some of the
documents in the developer manual, especially
the architecture document.
