Now that we have files being compiled, we need to initialize Python and our module. Tmux is a forked server that clients connect to, so try not to think of it as a single-threaded system. It's a client and a server, so all commands are executed on the server. Now let's find where the event loop is started in the server and initialize and finalize the server here so that it's done correctly. Looking at
int server_start(int lockfd, char *lockfile), we can add in the following:
#ifdef HAVE_PYTHON Py_InitializeEx (0); #endif server_loop(); #ifdef HAVE_PYTHON Py_Finalize (); #endif
Python is now embedded into the Tmux server. Notice that instead of simply
Py_Initialize, I used
Py_InitializeEx (0). This replicates the same behavior but ...
