Python Pinguino object

A Pinguino object for processing was developped by Stephane Cousot. Now a similar object exist with Python !!
Yeison Cardona wrote this object to use Pinguino with Python without knowledge of C programming. The pinguino side software use CDC to communicate with the computer. The computer use python to drive outputs, read analog inputs and many other things.

It is very simple to use, this is a simple example to blink 2 leds:

from pynguino import PinguinoProcessing
import time

Happy new year 2011 !!

Hi Guys,

2010 was a very good year for Pinguino and it's a pleasure to see how this project evolve. I remember the first version, it is not so far, and I am pleased to see that the beta 9-05, even if it is not perfect, is a working version and help to build many different things. This job was done with many contributions, reports and ideas. Each user, in its own way, is a contributor and help to make this tool more friendly and powerful.
I announced, a long time ago, Pinguino could be ported to 32 bits Microchip micro-controller, and now it's done. This feature don't stop the 8 bits development, but it's a new major improvement for this platform. I think 2011 should be again a good year for Pinguino.
Many thanks to you, guys.
I wish you a fantastic year, keep cool and stay connected with us.....
And if you are a new user, Welcome !!
