Infinite Flight Connect - Python

ah nice, not sure how this would work with a website since this is the connect api rather than the live api, but i’m sure you can figure something out

This is really Nice! Might start looking into this one!

Sounds great. I tried to make it as easy and efficient as possible. LMK if you find any bugs!

Hey this looks useful. Will look into some use cases for this. Was thinking of a remote monitoring and management system for autopilot controls and stuff. Might be feasible and possible. Thanks

Looks cool! I’m not a Python person but appreciate anyone doing things with the API. Now give the new one a shot, it’s a pain but super rewarding.

Liked ! Was thinking of developing something nice with the connect API.
Oh, and I just followed your github btw :p

@sanketpandia Of course, looking forward to seeing what you come up with :)


@Sebastien_Cartier Thanks for the follow 🤪. Excited to see what you develop with the API :)

Haha, I’ll definitely work on it when I can. I’ll probably need to read your NodeJS code a few more times before I can get it to work 😬

I’m completely not familiar with anything related to coding, but will this improve our experience with using joystick?

Very cool! I’m a big fan of Python so it’s nice to see that someone has built a module to get Python and the connect API together. Like others have said, I’m excited to see IFConnectNew with the new API :)

I’m not certain the v2 branch actually works 😬

Let me know if you have any questions though.

Very nice! Might develop something like LFC

Hopefully… We need something enabling us to use our joysticks, cause lately the connection and performance has degraded drastically…

@Crown.plane I’m not sure how this python library will help with joystick support. If you talking about the LiveFlight Connect app for Mac/Windows made by Cameron, that talks directly to the API without going through a Python library. Maybe someone will make another joystick connect app using this but I’m not sure… If LiveFlight Connect acting up lately, maybe reach out to the community for support? Although, I haven’t had many issues on my end, I know that the project has been marked as deprecated on GitHub…


@tomthetank If your a big fan of python, I’m sure you can find a creative use case for this (no pressure or anything 😅). If I do update this API to v2, it’d probably just be called IFConnect just to keep it short and simple.


@KaiM I’ll read the documentation and then your code. I’ll also lyk if I find anything I can help with on JS although I’m still fairly unfamiliar with JS.


@Saharsh excited to see what you develop!

I know that the app is deprecated but i have issues in its performance… Sometimes suddenly disconnects and freezes… It’s response to inputs has some lags and unfortunately it’s unreliable

Hi
This is a really amazing project. I finally see a python project about Connect API.
These days, I am trying to develop the connect v2 by using python.
I think I can successfully connect to IF and get status or run command now.
I have done the setState function, but it does not work!
hahah I am not sure the reason (Still testing).

If you are interested, please contact me and I can share my project with you.

I am thinking to use python to build a flight assistant tool for IF pilot in the future. hahah

Thank you!

I haven’t worked on v2 yet although I plan to check it out some time soon. Good luck with your project.

Thank you so much for this amazing project. Looking forward to playing around with the API a bit. Also, do you happen to know the list of all possible commands which we can send to the simulator?

There is a list commands command. Don’t forget to read the Infinite Flight API documentation on the user guide. Also, this IFC post may help: IF API connection tutorial
