Hello `scikit-build`!

This is my first post, so I'm happy to be here! I'm looking for some help installing `pyembree` on Windows and would really appreciate whatever advice you can give me.

Literally just yesterday, `conda-forge` removed support for `pyembree`, so I am trying to build it from source. This would be a great `cython` build example if we can get it to work!

I created a StackOverflow question here (this is the most up-to-date):


and there are also further discussions on GitHub:


If someone could help me figure out why I am not able to get my build to work properly, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you!
Adam Hendry

As a first, quick thought, there are Cython examples in https://github.com/scikit-build/scikit-build-sample-projects/tree/master/projects .

FYI, looking at https://github.com/conda-forge/pyembree-feedstock/commits/master/recipe/meta.yaml it does not look like windows has ever been supported, even in the first version there's a skip: true [win].

Actually, I know Windows was supported because I installed the Windows build on Tuesday. There was Windows support and it was suddenly removed. Also, I did look at the Cython example, but it is too simplistic. I based my work off it, but scikit-build still doesn't work properly.

I think the issue is with dynamic linking via cython on Windows. If any of you can take a stab at this SO post I'd appreciate it!
