The setup for developing DroneKit-Python on Linux is almost the same as for using DroneKit-Python. We therefore recommend that you start by following the instructions in Installing DroneKit.
When you’ve got DroneKit and a vehicle (simulated or real) communicating, you can then build and install your own fork of DroneKit, as discussed below.
Fork the dronekit-python project on Github.
Run the following commands to clone and build DroneKit (in the directory of your choice):
git clone https://github.com/<your_fork_of_dronekit>/dronekit-python.git cd ./dronekit-python sudo python setup.py build sudo python setup.py install
Navigate to your local git fork, pull the latest version, and rebuild/install:
cd ./<path-to-your-dronekit-fork>/dronekit-python git pull sudo python setup.py build sudo python setup.py install
