This module provides an interface to manage light phases using .ini file to perform remote call to a RLIEH satellite

Project description

# RLIEH Sat light

This module is intended to provide a python3 module and a CLI tool to manage
light phases on a RLIEH sat system

Rlieh-satlight is a part of the [RLIEH project](
and can be used on any system running python.

## .ini file sample
type = sat
ip =
pwm_channel = 0
; type = controller
; pin = 18

; light pwm values (percent)
dawn = [0, 20]
sunrise = [20, 75]
noon = [75, 100, 75] ; unused
sunset = [75, 20]
dusk = [20, 0]

; light modulation phases duration (in mn)
dawn = 10
sunrise = 10
sunset = 10
dusk = 10

## Install

### From source

git clone
cd rlieh-satlight
python3 install
coming soon to

### From pip

coming soon
pip3 install rlieh-satlight
## Usage

### as Py module
>>> from rlieh_sat.core import RliehSatLight
>>> light = RliehSatLight('/home/pi/conf/matouba.ini', 'dawn')
>>> light.request()

### as CLI tool

$ rlieh-satlight -h
usage: rlieh-satlight [-h] -i INI -p PHASE

Manage light on RLIEH sat.

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-i INI, --ini INI ini file full path
-p PHASE, --phase PHASE light phase


#### Simple call example
*dawn* phase on *matouba* tank

$ rlieh-satlight -i /home/pi/conf/matouba.ini -p dawn

#### Tip : create an alias

If you manage several tanks, the best way is probably to create aliases

$ alias matouba_dawn='rlieh-satlight -i /home/pi/conf/matouba.ini -p dawn'
