libpebble

Interact with your Pebble from OSX, Ubuntu or Debian operating systems.

Warning and Complications

  • Supported OSes are OSX 10.8, Ubuntu, Debian
  • OSes which can utilize a faster Bluetooth library, Lightblue-0.4, are OSX 10.8 and Ubuntu
  • Detailed Lightblue-0.4 installation instructions for earlier version of OSX (10.6) and other OSes can be found here

##1. Install Dependencies

All supported OSes will require python 2.7 to operate libpebble. It can be installed here

  • Pyserialwill also be required, is can be installed via pip

###a. OSX Additional Dependencies

Installing Lightblue-0.4 in OSX will require the following be installed:

  • PyObjC which can be installed via pip
  • Xcode 2.1 or later to build LightAquaBlue framework

###b. Ubuntu Additional Dependencies

Installing Lightblue-0.4 in Ubuntu requires some extra dependencies be installed via apt-get install:

  • python-dev
  • libopenobex1-dev
  • python-tk if you wish to use the GUI selection tool
  • python-bluez

###c. Debian Additional Dependencies

Support for lightblue is untested in Debian, however the following should be installed/completed for use with PySerial:

  • Install rfcomm sudo apt-get install rfcomm

  • Bind the device sudo rfcomm bind 0 PEBBLE_BLUETOOTH_ADDRESS 1

  • Make the following code change to pebble/pebble.py: Change:

      self._ser = serial.Serial("/dev/tty.Pebble"+id+"-SerialPortSe", 115200, timeout=2)
    

    to:

      self._ser = serial.Serial("/dev/rfcomm0", 115200, timeout=2)
    
  • Note that you may have to run libpebble as root with sudo python pebble.py in Debian

##2. Install Libpebble and Lightblue

  • To install libpebble, clone the current libpebble with lightblue support from git@github.com:pebble/libpebble.git to a location of your choosing
  • To install lightblue clone lightblue-0.4 from https://github.com/pebble/lightblue-0.4 and then:
    • cd lightblue-0.4
    • sudo python setup.py install

##3. Testing the Connection Note: you should have your bluetooth module enabled before continuing

###a. OSX When using libpebble on OSX, it is recommended that --lightblue be utilized.

#####Using libpebble with --lightblue on OSX

  • First install the OSX dependencies, general dependencies and lightblue

  • From the libpebble folder, execute the following: ./p.py --lightblue --pair get_time

  • Note that if no --pebble_id is specified before the command, you are provided with a GUI selection tool.

  • Note that if a MAC address is supplied, initialization time is reduced.

    • For example: ./p.py --pebble_id 00:11:22:33:44:55:66 --lightblue get_time where 00:11:22:33:44:55:66 is the Pebble's MAC Address, viewable on the Pebble from settings-->about
  • You can obtain your pebble's MAC address after a successful connection in the libpebble stdout debug logs

  • The --pebble_id can also be the 4 letter friendly name of your pebble but this will require that the Pebble is broadcasting.

  • It is also possible to set the PEBBLE_ID environment variable as well:

    export PEBBLE_ID="00:11:22:33:44:55:66"
    ./p.py --lightblue get_time
    

#####Using libpebble without --lightblue on OSX (MAY CAUSE KERNEL PANICS)

  • Pair your Pebble to your computer and make sure it's setup as a serial port. For example it could be exposed as /dev/tty.Pebble123A-SerialPortSe. You can accomplish this by using OSX's pairing utility in System Preferences --> Bluetooth -> + --> selecting your pebble Pebble XXXX then confirming the pairing code on the Pebble.
  • Once you're paired and the serial port is setup, you can execute commands without the --lightblue flag, just ensure that the --pebble_id is the 4 letter friendly name of your Pebble, 123A for example.
  • A command to get the time might be: ./p.py --pebble_id 123A get_time

b. Ubuntu

Automated pairing via --pair is not currently supported in Ubuntu

  • First install the Ubuntu dependencies, general dependencies and lightblue
  • In Ubuntu's Menu-->Settings-->Connectivity-->Bluetooth dialog, pair with your Pebble
  • From the libpebble folder, execute the following: ./p.py --lightblue get_time
  • Note that if no --pebble_id is specified before the command, you are provided with a GUI selection tool.
  • For example: ./p.py --pebble_id 00:11:22:33:44:55:66 --lightblue get_time
  • The --pebble_id can also be the 4 letter friendly name of your pebble but this require that the Pebble is broadcasting.

Applications

  • Note that applications each have a unique UUID which is used to launch on install/re-install, it should be visible in the source for your application.
  • Once an application is installed or re-installed it will be launched automatically. Disable this with --nolaunch
    • for example ./p.py --pebble_id 00:11:22:33:44:55:66 --lightblue reinstall brains.pbw --nolaunch

#####Installing:

  • From your libpebble directory, execute p.py with the argument load <path-to-valid-app>
    • for example: ./p.py --pebble_id 00:11:22:33:44:55:66 --lightblue load brains.pbw

#####Re-installing

  • To re-install an application, execute p.py with the argument reinstall <path-to-valid-app>. This will attempt to remove the application by its UUID or, if that fails, the name of the application before installing it once more.
    • for example: ./p.py --pebble_id 00:11:22:33:44:55:66 --lightblue reinstall brains.pbw

Functionality

The following are currently supported:

  • Sending email, sms and ping notifications
  • Installing, reinstalling and uninstalling applications
  • Installing firmwares
  • Launching applications by UUID
  • Sending application messages
  • Resetting device
  • Setting/getting time
  • Sending notifications
  • Setting the currently playing track
  • Getting the installed firmware version
  • Getting and setting the pebble's time

REPL

A basic REPL is available, it is best used with ipython:

`sudo ipython repl.py`

The variable pebble refers to the watch connection. You can for example perform pebble.get_time() to get the time of the watch
