Extra Python packages

If your project or library depends on the extra Python packages, you can use extra script to install them into the same virtual environment where PlatformIO Core (CLI) is installed.


platform = ...
extra_scripts = extra_script.py

extra_script.py (place it near platformio.ini):


# List installed packages
env.Execute("$PYTHONEXE -m pip list")

# Install custom packages from the PyPi registry
env.Execute("$PYTHONEXE -m pip install pkg1 pkg2")

# Install missed package
    import some_package
except ImportError:
    env.Execute("$PYTHONEXE -m pip install some_package")
