Build Status Crates.io Documentation

Control LIFX devices over (eventually LAN and) the internet.

Getting Started

This crate currently only supports control via the web API. To get started, go to the LIFX account settings page and create an access token.

The Client struct is the entry point for all functionality in this crate. It's advised to have a single instance of this client, as it holds a connection pool. Depending on your architecture, the lazy-static crate may be a good choice:

lazy_static! {
    static ref CLIENT: Client = Client::new("secret");

Here's a simple demo to ensure everything's working:

use lifxi::http::*;
fn main() {
    let client = Client::new("your secret here");
    let _result = client

If running that example results in all of your LIFX bulbs turning on and changing to red, you're in business! Head over to the docs to see more.
