A Python library for controlling YeeLight RGB bulbs.
yeelight is a simple Python library that allows you to control YeeLight WiFi RGB LED bulbs through your LAN.
For a command-line utility that uses this library, see yeecli.
There are many ways to install yeelight:
- With pip (preferred), do pip install yeelight.
- With setuptools, do easy_install yeelight.
- To install from source, download it from https://gitlab.com/stavros/python-yeelight and do python setup.py install.
To use yeelight, first enable “development mode” on your bulb through the YeeLight app. Then, just import the library into your project like so:
>>> from yeelight import Bulb
Afterwards, instantiate a bulb:
>>> bulb = Bulb("192.168.0.5") >>> bulb.turn_on()
Refer to the rest of the documentation for more details.
The library also contains a (currently undocumented) asyncio interface.
If you’d like to contribute to the code, thank you! To install the various libraries required, run (preferably in a virtualenv):
$ pip install -Ur requirements_dev.txt
In order for your MR to pass CI, it needs to be checked by various utilities, which are managed by pre-commit. pre-commit will be installed by the above command, but you also need to install the pre-commit hook:
$ pre-commit install
The hook will run on commit. To run it manually (e.g. if you’ve already committed but forgot to run it, just run):
$ pre-commit run -a
