nanoleaves

A command-line tool for interacting with your Nanoleaf Aurora. Also includes a full API client for the Aurora!

Build Status Coverage Status on npm

CLI usage

Provide the IP address of your Aurora in the environment variable AURORA_HOST and your API access token in AURORA_TOKEN. If your AURORA is listening on an unusual port, use AURORA_PORT.

To generate a token, hold the power key until the light starts flashing, then run nanoleaves token.

  --help     Show help                                                 [boolean]

API usage

const AuroraAPI = require('nanoleaves');
const aurora = new AuroraAPI({
    host: '10.0.0.2',
    token: 'your-api-token'
});

aurora.info().then(info =>
{
    console.log(info);
});

The constructor will default to the values in the above-mentioned environment variables if present.

All API functions return promises.

  • newToken() - generate a new API token
  • info() - return all info about the Aurora
  • identify() - flash panels
  • animation(name) - get detailed information about a specific animation effect
  • brightness() - get the brightness for all panels
  • setBrightness(v) - set the brightness for all panels; 0-100
  • effect() - get the name of the current effect
  • effects() - return a list of the names of all effects
  • setEffect(name) - set the active effect by name
  • hue() - get the hue for all panels
  • setHue(v) - set the hue for all panels; 0-360
  • layout() - get panel layout data
  • mode() - get the Aurora's current color mode
  • off() - turn the Aurora off
  • on() - turn the Aurora on
  • orientation() - get the global orientation; 0-360
  • saturation() - get the saturation for all panels
  • setSaturation(v) - set the saturation for all panels; 0-100
  • temperature() - get the color temperature for all panels
  • setTemperature(v) - set the color temperature for all panels; 1200-6500
  • addAnimation(json) - store a new animation effect on the Aurora
  • setStaticPanel(data) - set a panel or a list of panels to a static color; see below

Static panel structure

The setStaticPanel() function pokes a single color into a specific panel. It is only useful for single frame static displays. You can call this a couple of ways. This snippet sets panel id 100 to black:

const panel = { id: '100', r: 0,  g: 0,  b: 0 };
aurora.setStaticPanel(panel);

This code does the equivalent with a full panel object:

const Aurora = require('nanoleaves');

const aurora = new Aurora();
const panel = new Aurora.Panel('100');
panel.frames = [{ r: 0, g: 0, b: 0, w: 0, transition: 50}];

aurora.setStaticPanel(panel);

You can also send a list of panels to setStaticPanel():

const list = [
    { id: 71, r: 255, g: 0, b: 0, transition: 50 },
    { id: 26, r: 255, g: 51, b: 17, transition: 50 },
    { id: 72, r: 255, g: 102, b: 68, transition: 50 },
    { id: 167, r: 255, g: 153, b: 51, transition: 50 },
];
aurora.setStaticPanel(list);

There's an example of setting an entire static animation display in examples/static-display.js. Use nanoleaves panels to get a list of valid panel ids for your setup.
