Mindstorm

Installation

The easier way to install this library is by using OPAM:

opam install mindstorm

for the standard version and

opam install mindstorm-lwt

for the LWT one. If you prefer to compile and install by hand, make sure you have dune and the dependencies listed in src/jbuild and lwt/jbuild, then run

jbuilder build @install
jbuilder install mindstorm
jbuilder install mindstorm-lwt

Usage

Two modules are available: Mindstorm and Mindstorm_lwt with essentially the same signatures, except that the second one—as its name indicates—is to be used with Lwt.

Prerequisite under Unix

You need the package libbluetooth-dev (under Debian) or equivalent. For the USB connection, you must install the package libusb-1.0-0-dev (its presence should be automatically detected).

Prerequisite under Windows

Do not install the LEGO® fantom drivers. (If you know how to make this library work with the LEGO® drivers installed, submit a patch!)

Prerequisite under Mac OS X

Xcode.
