Python Optimization Packages

I have been maintaining a list of Python optimization packages for a while now on the Coopr Trac pages:  see, I noticed that if you google for "python optimization packages", this page does not show up right away.  Perhaps Trac pages are index differently?  I'm not sure.

Anyway, I thought I'd add this reference here to help others find this list that I'm maintaining...


  1. Hello Bill,

    I have written a Cython wrapper for the IPOPT package. Maybe you can add it to your list:

    Best regards,

  2. Bill,

    Thanks for the list of packages. I've linked to your page from a graduate optimization course ( that is currently under development. I think many of the student will use Python for their class projects.

    One additional package is the APM Python package available here:

    It is a web-service framework for solving optimization problems with access to some of the best nonlinear programming solvers like APOPT and IPOPT.
