TL;DR: I released a new Python library for Tic controllers: GitHub - jphalip/ticlib: Python library to drive Pololu Tic stepper motor controllers — Feedback welcome!
I recently got my first Tic controller and started looking into ways to write Python programs for it. I found the existing PyTic library but that only works on Windows and I use a Mac and a Raspberry PI. I also wanted to drive the controller using serial and I²C, not just USB. So I fell into a rabbit hole and wrote a new little library
The library is called ticlib. It’s available on Github (GitHub - jphalip/ticlib: Python library to drive Pololu Tic stepper motor controllers) and can be installed by running “pip install ticlib”.
I’ve currently tested it on the following platforms:
- Raspberry PI with USB, serial, and I²C.
- Mac with USB and with serial via a USB-to-serial adapter.
Let me know if you are able to run it on other platforms or if you run into any issues.
Wanted to share it in case it’s useful to other people. Feel free to try it out. Feedback and contributions welcome!
