Making PiFace Even Easier

I’m amazed how fast time goes, so a quick update on the world of PiFace

We’ve worked hard to package up the PiFace Digital software into debian packages. It’s now possible to install it using apt-get.

The latest version of Raspbian has the packages included by default http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/4959

We’re also nearly ready to launch the new website — there’s a sneak preview below. I’d hope to post the URL in the next couple of weeks once we’ve finished testing.

  1. If the PiFace software is now included in Raspbian, why does the screenshot show instructions for downloading the .deb manually? 😉

    • Well spotted! (We knew about it too though!) It’s why we’ve not released the website yet — it needs an update before we even have time to release it! Shows how fast Raspberry Pi is moving!

  2. Hello,
    thanks a lot for your work. I’m a french teacher in sciences & technology, we are working on the arduino (I’m also a “teacher trainer”) but I’m developping around the RPi too, and the PIFace. Your product is really great.
    But I have a request for all debutant in school : is it possible to make a special lightwieght “PiFace distrib” that can boot only on Scratch and with all option activated to work ?
    After that, they would have to change the SD card to use another distrib if they want, but I think it would help a lot of people to start with.

    thanks a lot !
