Support for AF_BLUETOOTH in Python?
« on: August 08, 2018, 07:58:42 PM »
Hi;

I'd like to migrate to PiCore for obvious reasons over Raspbian.

I'm working with BLE and PyBleno on the Pi; have been able to get bluetooth up and running without too many difficulties.

The available Python distributions don't appear to have support for bluetooth sockets (e.g. AF_BLUETOOTH).

Before I head down the non-trivial path of compiling Python with this support on TC, is there any chance of getting this functionality enabled, or something I've missed?

Thanks,
Steve

Have a week to work on this and figure I'd check back in, ran my updates for Python (3.6) but didn't see AF_BLUETOOTH support? Were the 2.x binaries updated?

Would love to be able to port over.

Thanks,
Steve
