libbox0 Binding

Project description


Python binding for libbox0


* cffi
* numpy

In C:

* libbox0


$ python build
$ python install

in, build_path variable to tell where to look for header and library


lots of demo code in test/ and example/
a generic approch to opening device and module and do something with them

import box0

# open any supported usb device
dev = box0.usb.open_supported()

# open the dio0 module (assuming the device support it)
# if you need to iterate over the supported modules using dev
dio0 = dev.dio(0)

# Prepare for basic mode (basic functionality)

# set to output mode
dio0.dir(0, dio0.OUTPUT)

# set value of pin 0
dio0.value(0, dio0.LOW)

#disable hiz mode of pin 0,
# note: all pins are in hiz mode right after opening (for protection)
dio0.hiz(0, dio0.DISABLE)

# start the basic mode

# wait
while True:

# Stop basic mode

# close resources

pyBox0 uses same style as libbox0 and
much of the documentation of libbox0 is applicable to pyBox0

int b0_<section>_<func>(<section-object>, params....)

in pyBox0:
instead of int, an exception (ResultException is raised) when int-val < 0
so, now the return value is used for other tasks

"b0" tag is now replace with "box0." as python have concept of modules

<section> is replace with files.
for example: <section> = "device" , theirs
and it contain

<func> these are under-scored style name in libbox0
in pyBox0, camelcasing is used
for example b0_usb_open_supported() is box0.usb.open_supported()

most of the library assumes numpy array.
numpy is good and you should always use numpy with pyBox0 as
it much better in long run
