Python wrapper for libinklevel

Project description


`|Build Status| <>`_

Python wrapper for `libinklevel <>`_.


Install `libinklevel <>`_, e.g. on


apt-get install libinklevel



import inklevel

# libinklevel version

# Get data from /dev/usb/lp0:
data = inklevel.get_usb_ink_level(0)

for cartridge, value in data.levels:
print('{}: {}'.format(cartridge.description, value))

# Get data from /dev/parport2
data = inklevel.get_parport_ink_level(2)

The functions ``get_usb_ink_level`` and ``get_parport_ink_level`` are
convenience functions using the original libinklevel interface. You can
also use that:


data = inklevel.get_ink_level(inklevel.Port.USB, None, 0)
data = inklevel.get_ink_level(inklevel.Port.CUSTOM_USB, '/dev/usb/lp0', None)

See `libinklevel <>`_ and
`ink <>`_ for details.
