Project description


Versions Code style: black Documentation Status Tests Status Build Status codecov

A library to control Finger Lakes Instrumentation cameras. It provides the SDSS gfaCamera and fvcCamera actors to control the Guide, Focus and Acquisition cameras and Field View Camera, respectively.


In general you should be able to install flicamera by doing

pip install sdss-flicamera

Although flicamera should handle all the compilation of the FLI libraries, you may still need to modify your system to give your user access to the FLI USB devices. See here for more details.

To build from source, use

git clone
cd flicamera
pip install .[docs]


flicamera uses poetry for dependency management and packaging. To work with an editable install it's recommended that you setup poetry and install flicamera in a virtual environment by doing

poetry install

Pip does not support editable installs with PEP-517 yet. That means that running pip install -e . will fail because poetry doesn't use a file. As a workaround, you can use the file to generate a temporary file. To install flicamera in editable mode without poetry, do

pip install --pre poetry
pip install -e .
