Controlino Notes

What is Instrumentino

Links to what the authors think:


My Take

Instrumentino is an instrument control system designed to interface with various smart or semi smart systems. Prepackaged with the system is a program that makes an arduino a sort of smart sensor ( this in C++ ) and the Python code to interface with this Arduino which we will call the controlino

Why

Install

Misnomer I do not want to really install it I want to get it running in my Spyder environment. Russ's Computer Environment

On windows not going well

 C:\Users\Russ>pip install instrumentino
 Collecting instrumentino
   Using cached instrumentino-1.0.tar.gz
 Collecting wxPython (from instrumentino)
   Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement wxPython (from instrumentino) (from versions: )

 C:\Users\Russ>pip install wxPython
 Collecting wxPython
   Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement wxPython (from versions: )

Well, not so bad. Useful to know that my Spyder already had wxpython, came with it or I installed, who knows. Also useful to know wxpython is called wx. This helps a lot.


This works

Download the file from github, the zip file. Unzip. Ignore a bunch of the stuff and take the

        \instrumentino
        from ( ........\instrumentino-master\instrumentino )
        and copy it to the place where your spyder projects live ( making a new project   instrumentino  )

Find the file:

         ......\SpyderP\instrumentino\__init__.py

and modify the top to:

         from __future__ import division
         
         import sys
         sys.path.append( ".." )
         
         #...... rest of file

This should make it run.

To do much more it seems you need an arduino.
