piwheels: Speedy Python package installation for the Raspberry Pi | @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi @piwheels

Rainbow pinwheel piwheel diversity inclusion

Great write-up from Opensource.com on piwheels.

One of the great things about the Python programming language is PyPI, the Python Package Index, where third-party libraries are hosted, available for anyone to install and gain access to pre-existing functionality without starting from scratch. These libraries are handy utilities, written by members of the community, that aren’t found within the Python standard library. But they work in much the same way—you import them into your code and have access to functions and classes you didn’t write yourself.

Not familiar with piwheels?

piwheels is a Python package repository providing ARM platform wheels (pre-compiled binary Python packages) specifically for the Raspberry Pi. Packages are natively compiled on Raspberry Pi 3 hardware using the Mythic Beasts Pi cloud.
