robotpy-cscore install

RoboRIO installation

If you have robotpy-installer on your computer, then installing robotpy-cscore is very simple:

# While connected to the internet
robotpy-installer download-opkg python36-robotpy-cscore

# While connected to the network with a RoboRIO on it
robotpy-installer install-opkg python36-robotpy-cscore

For additional details about running robotpy-installer on your computer, see the robotpy-installer documentation.

Compile from source


You must have a newer C++ compiler installed that supports C++11

  1. Install Python 3 (cscore is not supported on Python 2) and development headers
  2. Install Numpy (either via pip3 or using a Linux package manager)
  3. Install OpenCV (either via a Linux package manager or compile from source)
    • If you compile from source, you must enable shared library support, cscore cannot use a statically compiled OpenCV python module at this time
  4. Install pybind11 via pip3: pip3 install pybind11
  5. Install robotpy-cscore via pip3. It should be as easy as running pip3 install robotpy-cscore – though be warned, it takes several minutes to compile!

In the future we may provide binaries that can be installed on commonly used platforms, but there are a number of technical challenges that need to be solved and so that won’t be until at least 2018 if not later.
