Modular device Python client interface for communicating with and calling remote methods on modular device servers.

Project Description

This Python package creates a class named ModularClient, which contains an instance of serial_device2.SerialDevice and adds methods to it, like auto discovery of available modular devices in Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. This class automatically creates methods from available functions reported by the modular device when it is running the appropriate firmware. This is the modular device client library for communicating with and calling remote methods on modular device servers.

Example Usage:

from modular_client import ModularClient
dev = ModularClient() # Might automatically find device if one available
# if it is not found automatically, specify port directly
dev = ModularClient(port='/dev/ttyACM0') # Linux specific port
dev = ModularClient(port='/dev/tty.usbmodem262471') # Mac OS X specific port
dev = ModularClient(port='COM3') # Windows specific port
from modular_client import ModularClients
devs = ModularClients()  # Might automatically find all available devices
# if they are not found automatically, specify ports to use
devs = ModularClients(use_ports=['/dev/ttyUSB0','/dev/ttyUSB1']) # Linux
devs = ModularClients(use_ports=['/dev/tty.usbmodem262471','/dev/tty.usbmodem262472']) # Mac OS X
devs = ModularClients(use_ports=['COM3','COM4']) # Windows
dev = devs[name][form_factor][serial_number]
