Flotilla Python API
This library interfaces with Flotilla over USB serial.
We've created an installation script that will install the Flotilla python API and update your Dock in the process. To run it fire up Terminal which you'll find in Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal on your Raspberry Pi desktop like so:
In the new terminal window type the following and follow the instructions:
curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.com/flotilla | bash
If you've installed Rockpool, you need to shut down the Flotilla Daemon before you start talking to the dock using the present python API:
sudo service flotillad stop
Generic python installing
Download or clone this repository and follow the instructions:
cd flotilla-python pip install ./library
Now you'll be able to use Flotilla with python. Make sure your dock connected.
>>> import flotilla >>> dock = flotilla.Client() >>> dock.ready True
