Purpose

Remote control television by sending commands from iOS device to a server. For example, the server may be on a Raspberry Pi on local wifi network. The Raspberry Pi may have an infrared LED and operate as an infrared remote control.

remy_python

Make a Python app with two parts:

  • A Flask web service to accept television command requests (e.g. volume decrease, volume increase).
  • A way to send commands to a transmitter, which then transmits the commands to the television (e.g. via infrared light). The app may run on a Raspberry Pi with an attached infrared transmitter and use LIRC (Linux Infrared Remote Control).

Results

See code and tests.

unit tests

Unit tests may be run in simulator or on device. Need to grant microphone permission to iPhone or to macOS running simulator.

how to fix unit tests not running on device

The device may get into a state where tests "fail" immediately e.g.

Remy.app encountered an error (Failed to establish communication with the test runner.
(Underlying error: Unable to connect to test manager on 91281e8da160abcce5dad7950c47fbf64f02f8e3.
(Underlying error: kAMDMuxConnectError: Could not connect to the device.)))

I think one way this can happen if the user denied the app microphone permission.

To fix this, delete app from device. Turn device completely off and back on. Reinstall app.

Run tests, grant microphone permission.
