Yoctopuce libraries, GitHub, PyPI, and Raspberry Pi

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Programming, april 19,2013.

This week, we publish a new version of all of our libraries and of the VirtualHub. Among the improvements, the Android, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, JavaScript, Objective-C, PHP, and VB.Net libraries are now also available on GitHub. Likewise, you can download the Python library easily via PyPI (Python Package Index). To illustrate these changes, we are going to update our "PiCooker" example software so that it uses the library available on PyPI. We will take this opportunity to make a few improvements to the code.

Samsung Smart Dock Review

By Sébastien Rinsoz, in Reviews and Android, april 05,2013.

We just found out by chance how to get rid of one of the main hindrance limiting the use of our modules with Android mobile phones: the unique USB port which also serves to connect the power supply. Given that the mobile phone must power connected modules, the phone battery capacity has been a problem so far. What's new is that the "Galaxy Note II Smart Dock" is now available. This dock allows us to realize applications which before required much more hardware. We are going to present a short compatibility example of this device and as well as of the possibilities it provides once combined with our modules.
