Quickstart (TL;DR)

At the moment only Windows is supported (tested with 10, should also work with 8, 7, Vista and XP)

  1. Add StreamDeckSharp reference (via nuget or download latest release)
  2. Add a using directive for StreamDeckSharp: using StreamDeckSharp;
I want to... Code (C#)
create a device reference var deck = StreamDeck.FromHID();
set the brightness deck.SetBrightness(50);
create bitmap for key var bitmap = StreamDeckKeyBitmap.FromFile("icon.png")
set key image deck.SetKeyBitmap(keyId,bitmap)
clear key image deck.ClearKey(keyId)
process key events deck.KeyPressed += KeyHandler;

Make sure to dispose the device reference correctly (use using whenever possible)


If you want to see some examples take a look at the example projects in the repo.
Here is a short example called "Austria". Copy the code and start hacking ;-)

using StreamDeckSharp;

namespace StreamDeckSharp.Examples.Austria
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            //Create some color we use later to draw the flag of austria
            var red = StreamDeckKeyBitmap.FromRGBColor(237, 41, 57);
            var white = StreamDeckKeyBitmap.FromRGBColor(255, 255, 255);
            var rowColors = new StreamDeckKeyBitmap[] { red, white, red };

            //Open the Stream Deck device
            using (var deck = StreamDeck.FromHID())

                //Send the bitmap informaton to the device
                for (int i = 0; i < deck.NumberOfKeys; i++)
                    deck.SetKeyBitmap(i, rowColors[i / 5]);

Here is what the "Rainbow" example looks like after pressing some keys
