Send commands to Links from within your Python scripts.

Project description

Interface with your Links AI and send commands from within your Python scripts. Send requests through Links Web Service from any computer you want! Most of Links built in functions can be accessed by name with more being added all the time. If you have any requests feel free to let me know on github under issues. You can report bugs there as well. Have fun!

Links: ( Free Windows AI Software )

Get a list of all available commands

Returns a list of all callable commands.

Coming soon ‘Use with write_commands_to_file to create a file containing all the available grammars to use as a reference.’

import pytronlinks as Pytron

AI = Pytron.Client()

grammars = AI.GetGrammarList()
for commands in grammars:
    print commands

Get confirmation

Get confirmation before executing commands. Additional parameters not shown in example.

     Command: {response=test_confirm}

AI = Pytron.Client()
query = AI.listen('Pytron')  # Stars listening for input from Links

if query == 'quit':

if query == "Play music":
    # Get confirmation returns True or False so it can be checked directly, like this..
    if AI.GetConfirmation(confirm="Do you want to play music?"):
        AI.emulate_speech('play music')

     Command: Links {speech=test_dictation}
     Response: [Set("Pytron", {speech})]

     And use the dictation in Pytron with the script below.. ( Ctrl-c to quit )

import pytronlinks as Pytron

AI = Pytron.Client()

def main():
    dictation = AI.listen()
