Getting your (Pi) dev on

Update and install some things, this is of course biased to how I like things to be setup ;-)

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
$ sudo apt-get install -y vim-nox git zsh python3-pip python3-smbus i2c-tools python3-envirophat python3-blinkt python3-inkyphat
$ sh -c "$(curl -fsSL"
$ mkdir -p ~/.vim/pack/<github_username>/start
$ cd ~/.vim/pack/<github_username>/start
$ git clone
$ cd python-mode
$ git submodule update --init --recursive

note: just using my github_username above as a handy folder name, probably good if you’re using the dotfiles pattern as well.

And then this guide to configure I2C helped with get the EnviroPhat working
