There is a new version of pyBusPirateLite, the Python library for interacting with the Bus Pirate. It now supports Windows versions of Python. You can download the latest version from the Bus Pirate SVN Repository, or a package containing just pyBusPirateLite. See the wiki page on Bus Pirate Scripting in Python to get started.

Markus Gritsch writes: python-on-a-chip (p14p for short) recently got a branch to support PIC24 and dsPIC crontrollers. I got it to compile and the simulator in MPLAB shows it functioning. I mentioned the Web Platform in their mailing list and maybe both projects can share some synergy effects. It would be nice to use Python […]
Andrew wrote a Python script to display Winamp playlist info on an ethernet-connected #twatch LCD: It’s pretty basic at the moment, but I thought people might like to see. I’ve got some speakers in my lounge room driven by my computer (long wires), this lets me know what’s playing. It shows artist on row 1, […]
will_j posted a Bus Pirate script that controls a Sure Electronics 8×32 LED marquee: Here’s a quick and dirty perl script to display ‘BPv3’ on a Sure Electronics 8×32 LEd Matrix display. You can also use a 16×24 display if you change the second command code to 44 from 40. Any improvements gratefully received – […]

We’ve added a folder to the SVN with a few user-contributed scripts for the #twatch in Python, Perl, etc. If you come up with a script for the #twatch, please share it in the #twatch forum.
See the latest version in the documentation wiki. Since v2 the Bus Pirate firmware has included a self-test that verifies the function of pins and peripherals. The latest v2.6-nightly build adds a self-test to the binary bitbang mode. This is a useful way for applications to test the Bus Pirate, and for manufacturing quality control. […]
We want your scripts! The Bus Pirate has three new binary access modes that can be scripted from a PC: I2C, SPI, and bitbang. There’s already some basic Perl demos in the example scrips folder. If you script something for any of the new modes, in any language, we’d like to host it with the […]
