robotpy-ctre 2017.0.0

RobotPy bindings for CTRE third party libraries

Latest Version: 2018.2.5


This is a python wrapper around the CTRE 3rd party library.

NOTE: The RobotPy project is not associated with or endorsed by Cross The Road Electronics.

Setup (simulator)

pip3 install robotpy-ctre

Setup (RoboRIO)

NOTE: These are manual instructions, we’ll have support to install this via
the RobotPy installer in a few days

You really don’t want to compile this yourself, so don’t download this from pypi and install it. Use the precompiled wheel that we’ve published instead.


Currently, compilation is only supported on the RoboRIO or the RoboRIO VM. Use opkg to install g++ et al, install libstdc++-dev, and then run:

pip3 install pybind11 wheel
pip3 wheel .

Be warned that it takes a very long time to compile, and that if you’re using a real RoboRIO that you will need a swap device installed.


RobotPy specific bits are available under the Apache 2.0 license. The CTRE binaries are available under their custom license which basically says “you may only use this software with our hardware”. See LICENSE for details.
