CircuitPython BLE library for Google’s open “physical web” Eddystone.
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ble-eddystone
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ble-eddystone
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ble-eddystone
"""This example broadcasts our Mac Address as our Eddystone ID and a link to the Adafruit Discord server.""" import time import adafruit_ble from adafruit_ble_eddystone import uid, url radio = adafruit_ble.BLERadio() # Reuse the BLE address as our Eddystone instance id. eddystone_uid = uid.EddystoneUID(radio.address_bytes) eddystone_url = url.EddystoneURL("https://adafru.it/discord") while True: # Alternate between advertising our ID and our URL. radio.start_advertising(eddystone_uid) time.sleep(0.5) radio.stop_advertising() radio.start_advertising(eddystone_url) time.sleep(0.5) radio.stop_advertising() time.sleep(4)
