CTRE is only installable on 64-bit Windows, 64-bit Linux, and OSX
If you intend to use robotpy-ctre in your robot tests or via the robot simulator, you must install this package locally. It is recommended to install using the robotpy meta package:
py -3 -m pip install -U robotpy[ctre]
pip3 install -U robotpy[ctre]
Even if you have robotpy-ctre installed locally, you must install it on your robot separately. See below.
You really don’t want to compile this yourself, so don’t download this from pypi and install it. Use the RobotPy installer and run the following on your computer while connected to the internet:
py -3 -m robotpy_installer download -U robotpy[ctre]
robotpy-installer download -U robotpy[ctre]
Then, when connected to the roborio’s network, run:
py -3 -m robotpy_installer install robotpy[ctre]
robotpy-installer install robotpy[ctre]
For additional details about running robotpy-installer on your computer, see the robotpy-installer documentation.
NI Web Dashboard (optional)¶
CTRE Phoenix can integrate with the NI Web Dashboard on the RoboRIO. This is not required to run robotpy-ctre on the RoboRIO, but it can be a useful diagnostic tool. To install this, you will need to use the CTRE Lifeboat tool to install it separately.
Refer to the CTRE documentation for more details.
