A library and cli to communicate with Bose Soundtouch devices

Project description

A python library and cli for the Bose SoundTouch (R) API.

To be able to use my Bose Soundtouch 10 from the command line.

And to be able to use it as library for Home-Assistant https://home-assistant.io/

And to be ‘my first pip’ package :-)

Installation

To install boos python library, simply:

pip install boos

boos requires Python >= 3.4.

Quick Start

Connect to your Bose SoundTouch (R) device and activate preset 3

To work in python:

from boos import Boos

booz = Boos("http://boos.fritz.box:8090")
booz.preset(3)
booz.vol()
booz.vol(30)

Or if you can run python 3 code for example on Linux:

# create a symbolic link to the cli.py
# and (for now) be sure in cli.py you have the right url defined
sudo ln -s ./boos/cli.py /usr/local/bin/boos
# run
boos
boos set 3
boos vol
boos vol 30
Or create a virtualenv and create some bash file::

virtualenv -p python3 boos cd boos pip install boos

# and a bash file like:

#!/bin/bash

source /home/richard/venv/boos/bin/activate /home/richard/dev/boos/boos/cli.py “$@”

Packaging

All from https://python-packaging-user-guide.readthedocs.org/en/latest/distributing/#source-distributions

# source dist
python3 setup.py sdist
# creating a universal wheel?
python3 setup.py bdist_wheel

# now setup a local webserver to test
cd dist
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 9000

# and in another terminal
# create a python 3 virtual environment venv (all as usual)
virtualenv -p python3 venv
cd venv
source bin/activate
# now in python
python3
>>> from boos import Boos
>>> booz = Boos("http://boos.fritz.box:8090")
>>> booz.preset(3)            # setting to preset 3
>>> print(booz.now_playing()) # should show current playing song/source
