This is a project based on the original Python Arduino Prototyping API. I started a fork and after a while the whole thing was getting too different to make a pull request so I just put it here. The old project had wierd things going on to handle the communication, where I rely on parseInt() to do the work for me. There were also problems with analogWrite(), which is working in this version.
- .pde is completely redone
- Small changes in the arduino.py file
- Added examples
Here follows the original README (with updated example):

The Python Arduino Prototyping API helps you to quickly prototype Arduino programs, without having to repeatedly load the program to the Arduino board.
- Load prototype.pde onto your Arduino dev board.
- Import the arduino lib in your python script.
Arduino.output(list_of_output_pins) - set the output pins
- Arduino.getState() - returns true if pin state is high, else it returns false.
- Arduino.analogRead(pin_number) - returns the analog value
- Arduino.analogWrite(pin_number, value) - sets the analog value
1.) Arduino.turnOff() - sets all the pins to low state
2.) Arduino.close() - closes serial connection. Using this makes sure that you won't have to disconnect & reconnect the Arduino again to recover the serial port.
from arduino import Arduino import time b = Arduino('/dev/ttyUSB0') pin = 9 #declare output pins as a list/tuple b.output([pin]) for xrange(10): b.setHigh(pin) time.sleep(1) print b.getState(pin) b.setLow(pin) print b.getState(pin) time.sleep(1) b.close()
