Sending IR with Python/flirc

Recommended Posts

I have been messing around with the IR transmit capability of my flirc. I am able to send IR signals using the flirc_util app, but it takes around 800ms to send a single command. I suspect it's because flirc_util opens the device, sends the signal, and then closes the device. If I try with the repeat set higher, it doesn't significantly affect the timing.

It looks like the SDK provides static library (libflirc.a). I'm programming in python on a raspberry pi 3, which doesn't work with static libraries. Is it possible to get direct access to the flirc to open the device and send signals? Or possibly get a dynamic library?
