Getting Started

RobotPy WPILib is a set of libraries that are used on your roboRIO to enable you to use Python as your main programming language for FIRST Robotics robot development. It includes support for almost all components that are supported by WPILib’s C++ implementation.

You can run RobotPy-based programs either on your computer or on a robot. There are a lot of different ways you can get started with RobotPy, but we recommend the following steps:

Once you’ve played around with some code in simulation, then you should install RobotPy on your robot.

If you’re looking to use NetworkTables on the driver station or on a coprocessor, then check out the pyntcore install docs.
