An alternative to autodesk FBX library?

I recently found out about this alternative to the FBX SDK. Has anybody has a chance to poke at it? With ADSK slowing development on FBX (and the general heavy weight of the conventional SDK) this looks like an attractive option… but has anybody used it?

Followup question: Anybody made a Python wrapper for it?

I’ve not used that one, but years ago was able to leverage GitHub - assimp/assimp: The official Open-Asset-Importer-Library Repository. Loads 40+ 3D-file-formats into one unified and clean data structure. for some simple fbx parsing needs.

“assimp” is definitely a naming choice from an older, more innocent era of the internet.
