Is it possible to include a midi library to be able to read values from midi devices?
Probably, the library would be placed in:

(Preferences Folder)/library/python/packages/

If possible, what libraries (multi-platform if possible) would you advise me to use?

Check the Python Package Index if you can find a suitable library.

WOW! Impressive repository of python libraries, Niklas.
Thank you 🙂
I have found some stuff there, but the documentation is sooo unclear. Damn!!! Why must developers be so criptic? 😉

Hi Rui,

actually I'm not sure, to which documentation you are referring? And if you have an actual problem?

I think he refers to the documentation of a library, Andreas. 🙂

Yeah, thought so, too. Nevertheless wanted to make sure.

Actually, the problem is that some libraries (the one in particular that I wanted to try) comes in .cpp format. That means it requires compiling, I guess. And there are not instructions to compile it. The developers assume that everyone know how to do it, I guess.
Also, that means that, if I wanted to create a plugin that would require that library, I would have to pre-compile it for Mac OS, for Windows 32bit and Windows 64bit.
Why don't they provide it pre-compiled and ready to install or copy to a folder?
