Using f.lux with Yeelights! First alpha release


#21

Yes, you’re right, it does. No way for me to read out the color values out of that though.
Also f.lux has been there for almost a decade now, gradually dims your screen with many different options and modes and also supports a variety of operating systems. Way better than the native solution imo.

@lepathi & @kamppa
New version with the option to control only bulbs that are powered on is coming tomorrow :slight_smile:


#23

Yes, I thought it would have more options etc. Interesting script anyway, I’ll have to examine the code :slight_smile:


#24

That’s awesome to hear.

Thx for the update and notice. :heart_eyes:


#25

Thanks @davidr.
So far I have managed to download and install Python on my Mac. When I tried to run fluxee.py, it opened a Terminal window with some commands running, what should I do after that?


#26

:scream: Can’t wait to see the changes you made.


#27

Hey guys,
sorry for the delay, got busy with work. I think I have successfully implemented the light state checking feature, check out this new test build and report back if it works! Next up I will add an installer and autostart feature. Also I will try to make the script run completely in the background without that console.

Cheers and have a great weekend!


#28

Good job, David!


#29

:thumbsup:


#30

Working great.
Nice to see your progress. :grinning:

Hope to be able to learn python too after my abitur.

I also placed a shortcut to the fluxee.exe into my shell:startup folder. Works like a charm now. :heart_eyes:

“Also I will try to make the script run completely in the background without that console.”
Totally looking forward to that.


#31

I can definitely recommend it. I have no background in real coding, just some web dev stuff. I was able to write this script with just a few hours of going through tutorials and courses.

Viel Erfolg beim Abi!


#32

Cool :thumbsup:


#33

Hi there @davidr,

I hope you’re still developing fluxee…?
I really like it. It’s very useful and it just works :wink:
Could you also implement the different colour modes from f.lux, e.g. Himalayan Salt Lamp, Emerald City…
That would be nice to have:thumbsup:
Anyway, thank you for your effort!


#34

Thanks for the feedback, @AlexxAnders. No worries, I have not forgot this project but at the moment I’m a bit busy with university. I will try to look into it this weekend, though I don’t know whether f.lux reports back those colour modes via its API. I can only work with the values f.lux provides, I will take a look at those.
Cheers and have a good one.


#35

It will be amazing, if this support natively Yeelight, without PC with FLUX.


#36

@S474N4S

That is not possible as this script is only intended for f.lux which is a specific application for your PC.

If you want a similar experience, you can set scheduled scenes in the Yeelight app yourself. For example, dim your lights to 5000K temperature and 80% brightness at 20h, 4000K and 60% at 21h, etc. down to 1900K and 10% brightness in the end of the evening.


#37

I know, but it can support Yeelight directly.

Scenes have problem with no support ambilight together with main light.


#38

I know, but it can support Yeelight directly.

Can you tell me how? I’d be very interested in that.


#39

In future, not now :wink: Write it on wishlist!


#40

Huh? I don’t understand. Does it support flux natively, just a simple yes or no?
