Description

This is a pure Python library to access the Xiaomi Mi Band. It uses the library called pygattlib underneath. Please see https://bitbucket.org/OscarAcena/pygattlib for instructions of how to install it.

If you want a desktop application that uses it, please see Mibui.

Note: This software is tested using the 1.0.6.2 firmware version. It may not work on other versions. If does not work for you, please issue a bug.

Installation

You could install this library using the provided Debian package, through the Python pip or manually.

The Debian way

Just, add the following list to your file /etc/sources.list

deb http://babel.esi.uclm.es/arco sid main

Then, update and install as always:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install python-mibanda

The Python pip way

As usually, using the pip tool:

$ sudo pip install mibanda

NOTE: this package depends on pygattlib, which in turn, depends on some C libraries. If you have any problem installing it, please try to install the pygattlib depends first (listed of a file called DEPENDS in the pygattlib source).

The manual way

Just download this repository and extract (or clone) to a known location. Then make sure that your Python binary could find the miband package. You can set the PYTHONPATH to the proper location (i.e: this repo root dir) doing the following:

miband$ . setenv.sh

Now, just import the module mibanda, and use it according to the API documentation, or as in the examples.
