After getting Rockpool to play nicely with Ubuntu 14.04 I though I would take a look at ‘flotilla-python’.
git clone https://github.com/pimoroni/flotilla-python -b shipshape
Ran the install script and got into all sorts of choppy waters about ‘pyserial’.
I noticed in the script that it uses ‘pip’ to get ‘pyserial’
Do I need to install that first or is there an ‘apt-get install’ alternative ?
(And is it pip for python2 or python3).
I think that I’m beginning to fathom all of this out, but to make better headway I’d like to add some python goodness.
What are the advantages of using ‘flotilla-python’ ?
e.g. Would I be able to cobble something together to add a LCD screen to the Dock and use it as a Flotilla output?
