The Omega supports Python, we recommend installing the light version to save on space.

Steps to Install

Connect to the Omega's terminal either using SSH or Serial.

Run the following commands on the terminal:

opkg update
opkg install python-light

This will take about 2MB of space on the Omega

Python3

opkg update
opkg install python3-light

Then you have to run the right executable (python3). You can do a symbolic link to python so you just have to type python in the command line to run the interpreter.

Full Installation

The full installation of Python supports more modules out of the box but takes up more space on the Omega.

To install the full version:

opkg update
opkg install python

Python3

opkg update
opkg install python3
Then you have to run the right executable (python3). You can do a symbolic link to python so you just have to type python in the command line to run the interpreter.
