    Hi! (Double-post from Hardware, realized this is a generic software feature/request/problem )

    I'm attempting to create a lowcost rgbw ambilight setup, using a wifi-connected rgbw lightbulb from xiaomi that allows python/json commands to set rgb-colors. I'm attempting to see if Hyperion can be setup to work with Kodi on a Raspberry Pi 3 to average screen color and then run submit rgbw colors as arguments to a python script.

    Has anyone tried something similar and could perhaps direct me towards a resource to read up on how to get hyperion to forward rgb colors to a python script?

    This is what I'm trying to use (using python-yeelight library):

    from yeelight import *
    import sys

    bulb = Bulb(IPADDRESS)

    while True:
    input = sys.stdin.readline()
    inputData=input.split(' ')
    r = float(inputData[0])
    g = float(inputData[1])
    b = float(inputData[2])
    bulb.set_rgb(r, g, b)​

    I can see it can output a file, but is it possible to get it outputting as a continuous stream to a python script as above?

    Sorry if the question is vague..
