cython-hidapi

Description

A cython interface to the hidapi from https://github.com/signal11/hidapi with the C modification for windows from http://code.google.com/p/picusb/downloads/detail?name=hidapi_git_mingw_7e93a4e068825d227807.zip&can=2&q= so I could build it with mingw on windows.

This has been tested with:

  • the PIC18F4550 on the development board from CCS with their example program.
  • the Fine Offset WH3081 Weather Station.

It works on Linux, Windows XP and OS X.
