Python wrapper for the CUE SDK

Project Description


Python wrapper for the CUE SDK

On PyPi


Use pip

$ pip install cue_sdk

Usage example

>>> from cue_sdk import *
# Load CUE DLL. Provide path to DLL yourself.
>>> Corsair = CUESDK("CUESDK.x64_2013.dll")
# Gives us exclusive access to controling the lighting and turns everything off.
>>> Corsair.RequestControl(CAM.ExclusiveLightingControl)
# Sets the color of the H key to white.
>>> Corsair.SetLedsColors(CorsairLedColor(CLK.H, 255, 255, 255))
# Sets the color of the A and B key to green
>>> Corsair.SetLedsColors([CorsairLedColor(CLK.A, 0, 255, 0), CorsairLedColor(CLK.B, 0, 255, 0)])
# Define a callback function for SetLedsColorsAsync
>>> def example_callback(context, result, error):
...     assert context == "test123"
...     print(context, result, error)
# Asynchronously set the color of the E key to white. Pass in a callback and an arbitrary context.
>>> Corsair.SetLedsColorsAsync(CorsairLedColor(CLK.E, 255, 255, 255), example_callback, "test123")
# (Note: The >>> appears before the result because it's async.)
>>> test123 True CE.Success
# Returns number of Corsair devices.
>>> Corsair.GetDeviceCount()
# Takes zero-based index of device and returns a namedtuple with the device info.
>>> Corsair.GetDeviceInfo(0)
CorsairDeviceInfo(type=<CDT.Keyboard: 2>, model='K70 RGB', physicalLayout=<CPL.US: 1>, logicalLayout=<CLL.NA: 2>, capsMask=<CDC.Lighting: 1>)
# Returns a named tuple with the led positions + count of the keyboard.
>>> Corsair.GetLedPositions(0)
CorsairLedPositions(numberOfLed=111, pLedPosition=(CorsairLedPosition(ledId=<CLK.Escape: 1>, top=29.0, left=7.0, height=13.0, width=13.0), ...))
# Returns the led id (CLK enum) for the key name. Relative to logical layout (e.g. on an AZERTY keyboard it will return Q, not A)
>>> Corsair.GetLedIdForKeyName('a')
<CLK.A: 38>
# Performs protocol handshake and returns details. Already called when the CUE class is initialized, no need to call for it yourself.
>>> Corsair.PerformProtocolHandshake()
CorsairProtocolDetails(sdkVersion='1.15.28', serverVersion='1.16.42', sdkProtocolVersion=2, serverProtocolVersion=2, breakingChanges=False)
# Protocol details are stored here when called handshake is performed on init.
>>> Corsair.ProtocolDetails
CorsairProtocolDetails(sdkVersion='1.15.28', serverVersion='1.16.42', sdkProtocolVersion=2, serverProtocolVersion=2, breakingChanges=False)
# Release control back to CUE.
>>> Corsair.ReleaseControl(CAM.ExclusiveLightingControl)
