Use TouchOsc on the iPhone to trigger something on the Raspberry Pi

I can now use TouchOsc on my iPhone to trigger something on my Raspberry Pi. I use the Python library pyOSC to do it. It works practically out of the box. The difficulty was to install the Python library. I’m not so familiar with installing things on linux. For now,  I can send from my iPhone, but today I plan to get it working both ways. I invite you to follow on Twitter to get posted about my progress.

  1. Hi there, I was wondering if you could post the code that you used to achieve this. I’ve been trying to understand the pyOSC library for a while now because I want to achieve exactly what you’re doing, communicating with my raspberry pi using touchOSC. There is very little documentation on the process and you seem to be one of the few that has achieved it. Thanks for any help.

  2. Wow thanks a ton. I just browsed MarvinV2 and it alreay looks a lot simpler. The documentation for pyOSC was bad, and digging through the OSC file itself was hard, it has ~ 2600 lines of code. I’ll definately give a shout out on my blog.

  3. Hi, i can’t seem to find any info via the github link.
    I’m very interested to get osc to work with the raspberry pi.
    Any other tips or info on this?

  4. I don’t know exactly how I can help you. Have you a specific question? Did you find the source code?
