Getting Started


pySerial should come pre-installed in Ubuntu. To install pySerial on Debian Linux:
sudo aptitude install python-serial

Get the code

Option 1: Download the latest release
Option 2: Clone the Mercurial repository hg clone

Try it out

First, change the present working directory to the root of the repository where the README is located.
Now, we'll fetch a status from the inverter and upload it to PVOutput within the Python interpreter. Start Python.
edmund@NAS:~$ python
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Oct  9 2010, 17:18:04)
[GCC 4.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

To be continued... In the meantime, see the README file.
