Yes, that’s the plan. For now, use the RobotPy documentation.


Is Python for sure going to be a supported language in 2024? The blog post announcement indicated that was the goal but said it would happen when it is ready. Is it ready?

We are getting ready for fall programming training and are wanting to settle in on a language.

Yes. https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc/blog/2023-first-kitbot-details says there will be Python example code for the KitBot.

Basic code to operate the KitBot as designed in LabVIEW, Java, C++, and Python.


Will there be wrappers for Phoenix 5, 6, and/or Pro?

More generically are vendors supposed to supply wrappers/libs or is the WPILib team planning to continue to fulfill that need?
