lovesense-py - DEPRECATED
Deprecated: This library has been deprecated, and further development has been moved to the Buttplug Project <http://github.com/metafetish/buttplug>. Please see the README there for more information. Note that this library does not support Lovense Bluetooth LE toys. Support for those is included in the Buttplug library.
lovesense is a library for controlling Lovense sex toys, such as the Max and Nora. The library allows users to control all aspects of the toy (vibration/rotation/inflation, depending on the toy), as well as retrieving information like device type, status, battery level, and accelerometer readings.
The library is currently available in the following languages:
If you need an implementation in a language not currently supported by lovesense, please file an issue on the github tracker of the relevant project.
Please note that this project has no direct relation to the Lovense company. These drivers have been developed/supported by the open source community. Lovense has had no direct participation in this project and most likely will not be able to answer questions or provide support for any of the Lovesense drivers.
If you require commercial support for programming for Lovense products, it is recommended you go through the Official Lovense Developer Program.
To install the library, use either setup.py or pip. lovesense is a pypi hosted library, and can be installed by running:
$ pip install lovesense
The library is built to abstract the raw toy protocols from the communication medium, so it can pass packets for each toy over whatever medium you like. For instance, you could create a network class that talks to a daemon that communicates with a serial port, if needed.
lovesense-py uses the Tox library for test environment setup, test execution, documentation building, and other automated tasks.
To run project tests:
$ tox --skip-missing-interpreters
To create documentation:
$ tox -e docs
Protocol documentation is available at the lovesense-docs site on readthedocs.org.
The protocol documentation repository is available at metafetish/lovesense-docs on github.
