blink1 0.0.9

PyUSB-based Blink(1) control library

Latest Version: 0.1.3

About this library

This is a rewrite of ThingM’s original Python library. It includes the following modifications:

  • 100% test coverage on all library components
  • Python 3.x compatible
  • Automatic installation via Python Package Index.
  • Higher level control over the blink(1).
  • Single implementation with pyusb, intended to be installed with admin access or virtualenv.


Use the pip utility to fetch the latest release of this package and any additional components required in a single step:

pip install blink1

Developer installation

Having checked out the blink(1) library, cd to python/pypi and run the setup script:

python develop


The simplest way to use this library is via a context manager.

import time from blink1.blink1 import blink1

with blink1() as b1:
b1.fade_to_color(100, ‘navy’) time.sleep(10)

When the blink1() block exits the light is automatically switched off. It is also possible to access the exact same set of functions without the context manager:

from blink1.blink1 import Blink1

import time

b1 = Blink1() b1.fade_to_rgb(1000, 64, 64, 64) time.sleep(3) b1.fade_to_rgb(1000, 255, 255, 255)

Unlike the context manager, this demo will leave the blink(1) at the end of execution.
