Drive a BlinkM with Python via I2C using python-smbus on Raspberry Pi.
$ sudo apt-get install python-smbus $ sudo pip install pyblinkm $ python >>> from pyblinkm import BlinkM, Scripts >>> blinkm = BlinkM() >>> blinkm.reset() >>> blinkm.play_script(Scripts.THUNDERSTORM) >>> blinkm.reset() >>> blinkm.fade_to(255, 0, 0) >>> blinkm.fade_to_hex("ff0000") >>> blinkm.go_to(0, 255, 0)
You must install python-smbus with your package manager since it is not available on pypi.
$ sudo apt-get install python-smbus
$ pip install pyblinkm
