This function will download and install the AxiDraw python API for use with reticulate. It is necessary to have this installed in order to use any of the functionality in the fawkes package.

install_axidraw(path = NULL, ...)



The path to the AxiDraw API. If NULL it will be downloaded automatically.


Arguments passed on to reticulate::py_install


The name, or full path, of the environment in which Python packages are to be installed. When NULL (the default), the active environment as set by the RETICULATE_PYTHON_ENV variable will be used; if that is unset, then the r-reticulate environment will be used.


Installation method. By default, "auto" automatically finds a method that will work in the local environment. Change the default to force a specific installation method. Note that the "virtualenv" method is not available on Windows.


The path to a conda executable. Use "auto" to allow reticulate to automatically find an appropriate conda binary. See Finding Conda for more details.


The requested Python version. Ignored when attempting to install with a Python virtual environment.


Boolean; use pip for package installation? This is only relevant when Conda environments are used, as otherwise packages will be installed from the Conda repositories.
