Python module for Spark devices

Project Description


Python module for Spark devices.

Use it as follow:

from spyrk import SparkCloud

PASSWORD = 'pasSs'
ACCESS_TOKEN = '12adza445452d4za524524524d5z2a4'

spark = SparkCloud(USERNAME, PASSWORD)
# Or
spark = SparkCloud(ACCESS_TOKEN)

# List devices
print spark.devices

# Access device
# Or, shortcut form

# List functions and variables of a device
print spark.captain_hamster.functions
print spark.captain_hamster.variables

# Tell if a device is connected
print spark.captain_hamster.connected

# Call a function
spark.captain_hamster.digitalwrite('D7', 'HIGH')
print spark.captain_hamster.analogread('A0')
# (or any of your own custom function)

# Get variable value

Currently supporting:

  • Initialisation by username/password (generating a new access token every time).
  • Initialisation by access token (get it from the Build Web IDE).
  • Automatic discovery of devices.
  • Automatic discovery of functions and variables in a device.
  • Calling a function.
  • Accessing a variable value.

Not yet supported:

  • Subscribing and publishing events
  • Any PUT method of the API (like uploading a firmware or application.cpp). That would be cool though.


$ pip install spyrk
