Python pluginsΒΆ

Python plugins offers the most flexible way of extending the functionality of TellStick. To get started a development environment should first be setup on a computer running Linux or macOS. Windows is not supported at the moment.

Telldus own plugins are open source and can be used as a base for new plugins. These can be found here:

This guide will describe the example plugin found here:

The plugin adds one dummy device to the system.

During the development it is recommended to install it within the server software. This way the software will restart itself whenever a file has changed. To install it use the tellstick command install:

./ install [path-to-plugin]

Replace [path-to-plugin] with the path to the plugin root folder.
