Python Version

pimoscope is tested on Python 2.7 and Python 3.


pimoscope uses these packages from PyPI. Each package will install its own dependencies, too.



pimoscope must be run on a RaspberryPi because it contains dependencies on the Rpi.GPIO package.

You can install pimoscope package from a wheel file using pip tool. When creating the virtualenv on your RaspberryPi be sure to include -system-site-packages flag to avoid errors with smbus.

pi@raspberrypi: $ mkdir try-pimo
pi@raspberrypi: $ cd try-pimo
pi@raspberrypi:~/try-pimo $ virtualenv -system-site-packages venv
pi@raspberrypi:~/try-pimo $ source venv/bin/activate
(venv) pi@raspberrypi:~/try-pimo $ pip install pimo-0.1-py2-none-any.whl
(venv) pi@raspberrypi:~/try-pimo $ pimo -h
