I’ve published the Glowforge Utilities Python package to PyPi.
The main reason for this is to make it easier to include the package in other Python projects. All you need to do is run
pip install gfutilities, and you’re good to go.
The driver for this is the need to easily include this library (and other OpenGlow libraries) in the Yocto image for the board.
The main driver for that is to make it easier for me to perform test runs. Right now, for each run, I need to copy and paste a ton of commands into the console to set up the hardware and drivers.
This is getting old, so I’m taking a moment to automate this process and add a connector that will optionally allow the OpenGlow to be ran by the GFUI.
