I couldn't find any previous mentions of this in the docs or in the forum so I'll post this here.
I'm thinking about adding support for an ambient temp sensor (DHT11/22) in the Dashboard plugin. This could be achieved by using the Adafruit_DHT package (MIT license). This package is available via PIP and I wonder what the best practice is in regards to referencing/including 3:d-party packages like that is?
Should i include it in plugin_additional_packages in setup.py? Does that mean that it gets installed automatically by pip in the installer?
plugin_additional_packages = ["Adafruit_DHT"]
error: package directory 'Adafruit_DHT' does not exist
Edit2: plugin_requires = ["Adafruit_DHT"] did the trick.
