The programmer Python code is organized in a Python package. The actual code for the programmer is located in the
tinyfpgab directory in the
__main__.py files. The
setup.py script is specific to the Python packaging system and should be be executed directly. If you want to learn more about Python packaging take a look at the Python packaging documentation. If you just want to run the programmer on the command-line, the best way is to install it using pip:
pip install tinyfpgab. The programmer script will then be added to your
PATH variable as
The GUI has been moved to the TinyFPGA Programmer Application repo.
tinyfpgab module can be used on its own with a command-line
Install the commandline tool via Python's pip tool:
> pip install tinyfpgab
> tinyfpgab --help usage: tinyfpgab [-h] [-l] [-p PROGRAM] [-b] [-c COM] [-d DEVICE] [-a ADDR] optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -l, --list list connected and active TinyFPGA B-series boards -p PROGRAM, --program PROGRAM program TinyFPGA board with the given bitstream -b, --boot command the TinyFPGA B-series board to exit the bootloader and load the user configuration -c COM, --com COM serial port name -d DEVICE, --device DEVICE device id (vendor:product); default is TinyFPGA-B (1209:2100) -a ADDR, --addr ADDR force the address to write the bitstream to
You can list valid ports with the
> tinyfpgab --list TinyFPGA B-series Programmer CLI -------------------------------- Boards with active bootloaders: COM24
You can use the
--com option to specify a specific port. If you don't specify a port, it will use the first one in the list:

The tests can be run with tox: just run the
tox command. If you don't have
tox installed, read the tox documentation and install it first.
