    The Pi can be used as a "PC" or a "development board".
    Either way, connecting a printer is easy.

    Got my HP network printer working in 1 hour.
    Printed a "word" document in color.

    Any guesses on how long it will take to print from Python. ( 1 minute or 1 week???) lol

    Reminder: CUPS setup at (IP address:631) example (198.168.123.15:631)

    631 is a port on the local machine, so http://localhost:631 or http://127.0.0.1:631 should work if your connected DIRECTLY to the PI for all networks.
