Communicate asynchronously with DGT boards

Project Description

asyncdgt uses asyncio to communicate asynchronously with a DGT electronic chess board. View reference documentation.

Example

Create an event loop and a connection to the DGT board.

import asyncio

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
dgt = asyncdgt.auto_connect(["/dev/ttyACM*"], loop)

Register some pyee event handlers. They will be called whenever a board gets connected, disconnected or the position changed.

@dgt.on("connected")
def on_connected(port):
    print("Board connected to {0}!".format(port))

@dgt.on("disconnected")
def on_disconnected():
    print("Board disconnected!")

@dgt.on("board")
def on_board(board):
    print("Position changed:")
    print(board)
    print()

Get some information outside of an event handler using the coroutine get_version().

print("Version:", loop.run_until_complete(dgt.get_version()))

Run the event loop.

try:
    loop.run_forever()
except KeyboardInterrupt:
    pass
finally:
    dgt.close()
    loop.close()

See asyncdgt/__main__.py for the complete example. Run with python -m asyncdgt /dev/ttyACM0.
