pyfrc 2017.1.5

Development tools library for python interpreter used for the FIRST Robotics Competition

pyfrc - RobotPy development library helper

[![Build Status](](

pyfrc is a python 3 library designed to make developing python code using WPILib for FIRST Robotics Competition easier.

This library contains a few primary parts:

  • A built-in uploader that will upload your robot code to the robot
  • Integration with the py.test testing tool to allow you to easily write unit tests for your robot code.
  • A robot simulator tool which allows you to run your code in (vaguely) real time and get simple feedback via a tk-based UI


For usage, detailed installation information, and other notes, please see our documentation at

Quick Install + Demo

If you have python3 and pip installed, then do:

pip3 install pyfrc

Once this is done, you can run a quick demo by running:

cd samples/physics/src/ python3 sim
