Project description

The state-of-the-art BME680 breakout lets you measure temperature, pressure, humidity, and indoor air quality.


Manual install:

Library install for Python 3:

sudo pip3 install bme680

If you want to contribute, or like living on the edge of your seat by having the latest code, you should clone this repository, cd to the library directory, and run:

sudo python3 install

(or sudo python install whichever your primary Python environment may be)

In all cases you will have to enable the i2c bus.
