Python Firmata + Arduino Uno

Hey guys,

Does anyone know how to get Firmata working so it's possible to control Arduino Uno directly from Python?

I have PySerial working, and I tried using Python Firmata from here: http://playground.arduino.cc/interfacing/python

But it doesn't work (perhaps because it's 5 years old). It looks like it makes a connection with the board (the LED flashes a few times at first) but doesn't do anything else.

Would appreciate any help.

P.S. I'm a Mac OS X user.

Thanks.

Any tips at all?

Desperate for any suggestions to control Arduino directly with Python. Has anyone managed this?

Thanks guys.
