It is highly recommended that you read the inline comments in
module is very thoroughly documented.
Installation & Requirements
Make sure you have the following packages installed (including devel versions):
You're also going to need to install the
upnp gem. Unfortunately it is not yet released publicly, so I have included it here as a submodule dependency. The easiest way to get setup right now would be:
git clone https://github.com/kballenegger/ruby-hue.git && cd ruby-hue git submodule init git submodule update cd httpi && bundle install && rake install && cd .. cd upnp && bundle install && rake install && cd .. bundle install rake install
gem install ruby-hue will only work when
upnp has been successfully installed.
