A simple wrapper for lirc's irsend.

Project description


This is a simple wrapper for lirc's irsend.


pip install py_irsend

Basic Usage:

>>> from py_irsend import irsend
>>> irsend.list_remotes()
['lasko_heater', 'lights.conf', 'dynex_tv', 'logitech_z906', 'sabrent_hdmi_switch']
>>> irsend.list_codes('logitech_z906')
>>> irsend.send_once('logitech_z906', ['POWER'])

It makes use of subprocess to call irsend. No attempts are made to handle errors (e.g. irsend not being installed, or lircd not running), and instead leaves those to the caller. See the documentation for subprocess (specifically check_output) to determine which exceptions may be raised.
