Python API for the Luxafor Flag

* Free software: MIT license
* Documentation:


* Python 3+
* Simple, clean API to control the
`Luxafor Flag <>`
* Where possible, allows the setting of multiple, specific LEDs at once.


Install via pip::

$ pip install pyluxafor

Create the file: `/etc/udev/rules.d/10-luxafor.rules` with the following

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idProduct}=="f372", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04d8", MODE:="666"

Then reload udev::

$ sudo service udev reload

Then unplug your Luxafor Flag and reinsert it.

Example usage


from pyluxafor import LuxaforFlag
from time import sleep

flag = LuxaforFlag()
leds=[LuxaforFlag.LED_TAB_1, LuxaforFlag.LED_BACK_1, LuxaforFlag.LED_BACK_2],
r=10, g=10, b=0,
flag.do_static_colour(leds=LuxaforFlag.LED_BACK_3, r=0, g=0, b=100)


flag.do_pattern(LuxaforFlag.PATTERN_POLICE, 3)


Many thanks to `vmitchell85 <>` for his
`luxafor-python <>` project,
which provided the initial inspiration for this project, and provided easy
answers to the problems I encountered.

If you're looking to control a Luxafor Flag in Windows using Python,
vmitchell85's project is probably the best bet:
