Hi everyone,

I need to write a script that automates Kstar and Ekos to start, connect devices, start sequence and so on..

For now I’m at the beginning, and this is my code:

import os
import logging
import time
import shlex, subprocess
import sys
from dbus import glib
glib.init_threads()

import dbus

bus = dbus.SessionBus()

def open_ekos_window(bus):
    kstars = bus.get_object("org.kde.kstars", "/KStars")
    main_window = dbus.Interface(kstars, 'org.kde.KMainWindow')
    main_window.activateAction('ekos')

ekos_object = bus.get_object("org.kde.kstars", # Connection name
                               "/KStars/Ekos" # Object's path
                              )
# Get Ekos interface
E_iface = dbus.Interface(ekos_object, 'org.kde.kstars.Ekos')

# Start Ekos 
E_iface.start()

def main():
    open_ekos_window(bus)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

I use the astroberry OS, where the INDI drivers are automatically started at the beginning.
So far so good, but now I would to get the status of the single devices the to perform some checks. And after load some scheduler to start some sequence.

Any suggestion?

Thanks,

Luca
