Python interface to the Lab Streaming Layer

Project description

This is the Python interface to the Lab Streaming Layer (LSL). LSL is an overlay network for real-time exchange of time series between applications, most often used in research environments. LSL has clients for many other languages and platforms that are compatible with each other.

Pylsl should work with any recent version of the liblsl library (which is also included with this package), on any operating system and with any recent Python version, including 2.7+ and 3.x.

Let us know if you encounter any bugs (ideally using the issue tracker on the GitHub project).

Known Issues

  • On Linux one currently cannot call pylsl functions from a thread that is not the main thread.


Pylsl was primarily written by Christian Kothe while at Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience, UCSD. The LSL project was funded by the Army Research Laboratory under Cooperative Agreement Number W911NF-10-2-0022 as well as through NINDS grant 3R01NS047293-06S1. Thanks for contributions, bug reports, and suggestions go to Bastian Venthur, Chadwick Boulay, David Medine, Clemens Brunner, and Matthew Grivich.
