GoPro Camera - Python module made easy.

Project description

At the moment all testings are conducted with the newest version of the GoPro Hero 4.


Easy install with Github or PyPi (Soon)

Installing the latest version from GitHub.

`bash $ git clone $ cd gopro $ python install `

Installing the tested version from PyPi.

`bash $ sudo pip install gopro `


Once the installation is complete you are ready to start! :)

Launch your favorite ipython or standard python

` >>> import gopro >>> camera = >>> `

Camera modes

Makes it easy to cycle threw each available modes.

`python camera.mode('burst') camera.mode('photo') camera.mode('timelapse') camera.mode('video') `

Locate (Beep! Beep!)

Can’t find your device?? Call the locate function and it will Beep endlessly until there is no more battery.

To turn off the beeps, simply press the mode button on the device or use the off as a parameter.

`python camera.locate('on') camera.locate('off') `


The camera will turn itself off, the Wi-Fi will still be active.

At the moment there is no working commands to turn the device back on.

To reactivate the device, press the mode button.

`python camera.sleep() `

Delete Photos

Might be useful to dump all those photos from your GoPro.

Warning once you delete photos/videos you cannot retrieve them back.

The erase function does the same as the delete all.

`python camera.erase() camera.delete_all() camera.delete_last() `


Want to explore & troubleshoot the device a bit, you can retrieve the following properties from your device.

` camera.commands `
