Python library to read the DHT series of humidity and temperature sensors on a Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone Black.
For all platforms (Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black) make sure your system is able to compile Python extensions.
On Raspbian or Beaglebone Black's Debian/Ubuntu image you can ensure your system is ready by executing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev
So build-essential and python-dev are Debian packages...
