Platform Support

Being built on cargo and rustc, maturin is limited by rust's platform support.

Automated tests

On GitHub actions, windows, macOS and linux are tested, all on 64-bit x86. FreeBSD is also tested though Cirrus CI, but might get removed at some point. Since CI is very time intensive to maintain, I'd like to stick to GitHub action and these three platforms.


The following targets are built into wheels and downloadable binaries:

  • windows: 32-bit and 64-bit x86
  • linux 32-bit and 64-bit x86 as well as armv7 and aarch64 (musl)
  • macOS: 64-bit and aarch64

Other Operating Systems

It should be possible to build maturin and for maturin to build wheels on other platforms supported by rust. To add a new os, add it in and, if it doesn't behave like the other unixes, in PythonInterpreter::get_tag. Please also submit the output of python -m sysconfig as a file in the sysconfig folder. It's ok to edit to deactivate default features so pip install works, but new platforms should not require complex workaround in


All architectures included in manylinux (aarch64, armv7l, ppc64le, ppc64, i686, x86_64, s390x) are supported. I'm not sure whether it makes sense to allow architectures that aren't even supported by manylinux.

Python Support

CPython 3.7 to 3.10 are supported and tested on CI, though the entire 3.x series should work. This will be changed as new python versions are released and others have their end of life.

PyPy 3.6 and later also works.
