kiss2 - Python KISS Module


kiss2 is a Python Module that implementations the KISS Protocol <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KISS_(TNC)>_ for communicating with KISS-enabled devices (such as Serial or TCP TNCs). It is based on kiss(Another python module) which is no longer maintained.

Versions

  • 6.5.x branch will be the last version of this Module that supports Python 2.7.x
  • 7.x.x branch and-on will be Python 3.x ONLY.

Installation

Install from pypi using pip: pip install kiss2

Usage Examples

Read & print frames from a TNC connected to '/dev/ttyUSB0' at 1200 baud::

import kiss

def p(x): print(x)  # prints whatever is passed in.

k = kiss.SerialKISS('/dev/ttyUSB0', 1200)
k.start()  # inits the TNC, optionally passes KISS config flags.
k.read(callback=p)  # reads frames and passes them to `p`.

Testing

Run nosetests from a Makefile target::

make test
