Getting started with CodeePy

Requirements

CodeePy requires Python 3.4 to be installed on your machine, it can be downloaded for free from the Python website. We recommend using Pycharm IDE as your initial development tool, please note students, educators and educational facilities have free access to the professional version and there is also a free community version.

Setting up your development environment

Create a new project, being sure to specify the Python 3.4 interpreter. Open the terminal within PyCharm and install CodeePy with pip (which will also install any dependencies) For more information regarding pip please visit our module page

pip install codeepy

Getting started

Within your project create a new Python file, initially you will need to import CodeePy, and create an instance of CodeePy. I have included a helper which will list your com ports, additionally CodeePy documentation can be viewed with the help(CodeePy) function below

from codeePy import CodeePy

# view CodeePy Documentation
help(CodeePy)

CodeePy.get_com_ports()

# create CodeePy Instance and open connection
board = CodeePy('<Your COM port>')

Now you have created your instance object please see the Example.py file to test the CodeePy functions.
