robotpy-rev install

Setup (tests/simulator)


REV SPARK MAX support is only available for 64-bit operating systems.

If you intend to use robotpy-rev in your robot tests or via the pyfrc simulator, you must install this package locally. It is recommended to install using the robotpy meta package:

py -3 -m pip install -U robotpy[rev]
pip3 install -U robotpy[rev]

Setup (RoboRIO)

Even if you have robotpy-rev installed locally, you must install it on your robot separately. See below.

Python package

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[rev]
robotpy-installer download -U robotpy[rev]

Then, when connected to the roborio’s network, run:

py -3 -m robotpy_installer install robotpy[rev]
robotpy-installer install robotpy[rev]

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

REV Firmware and Diagnostics

robotpy-rev supports all the control features of the C++ Spark Max library. Firmware, diagnostics, and other things must be installed separately using the tools released by REV.

Refer to the REV C++ documentation for more details.
