Python client for pushscreen.io
The code has been tested with Python 2.6 and 2.7.
Please use pip to install on your machine:
pip install pushscreen
First, open the iPad app and create a channel.
Then, in your Python code connect to that channel:
from pushscreen import Channel channel = Channel("my-channel-name")
And with one more line you can send e.g. a URL to your device:
You can push all types of content using the channel.push() method. Just set the type argument to either url, html or clear, and supply other parameters as keyword arguments.
channel.push(type="url", url="http://code.pb.io/pushscreen/demo1.html") channel.push(type="html", html="<h1>Hello world</h1>") channel.push(type="clear")
Or use one of the following convenience methods:
For the url and html push types you may supply one or more of the following customization options:
By default the user will not be able to interact with the content on the iPad. To enable touch interaction (links, buttons, etc.), set this to True.
If you want to make your content scrollable by the user, set this to True. Only useful if you also set interactive=True.
Set this to True if you want rubber-band scrolling on your content. Only make sense in combination with scrollable=True.
If you want the user to be able to use the pinch gestures to zoom the content, set this to True.
By default the pushed content will stay on screen until the user dismisses it or the next push arrives. If you want your content to disappear after a specific time, set the ttl parameter to the desired time in seconds.
