A simple wrapper for lirc's irsend.

Project Description

# python-irsend

This is a simple wrapper for [lirc’s irsend](

## Install:

` 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') ['POWER', 'INPUT', 'MUTE', 'LEVEL', 'EFFECT', 'VOLUME_DOWN', 'VOLUME_UP'] >>> 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_call]( and [check_output]( to determine which exceptions may be raised.
