python bindings using ctypes for libsensors3 of the lm-sensors project. The code was written against libsensors 3.3.4.
For a GUI application that displays the sensor readings and is based on this library, take a look at sensors-unity.
- Full access to low level libsensors3 API
- High level iterator API
- unicode handling
- Python2 and Python3 compatible
LGPLv2 (same as libsensors3)
As Python does not support call by reference for primitive types some of the libsensors API had to be adapted:
# nr is changed by refrence in the C API chip_name, nr = sensors.get_detected_chips(None, nr) # returns the value. throws on error val = sensors.get_value(chip, subfeature_nr)
Missing Features (pull requests are welcome):
- Error handlers
