a while ago I bought one of these WIFI bulbs and created a binding to control it.
Is it interesting to anyone?
A major advantage of these bulbs is that besides a very common WIFI router you need no other hardware like you usually have for bluetooth bulbs or milight controller.
Agreed with the one caution that a binding that only interacts with a simple REST API and nothing more (e.g. doesn’t implement Oauth authentication, doesn’t manage complex payloads, implements an a REST API that depends on sending information in the body of the request, etc) it is far better to use the existing bindings than it is to add new ones. There are already over 130 bindings and it was testing and reviewing all of those bindings that caused the release of 1.8 to be delayed. Therefore, IMHO, a binding should provide a capability that I can’t already do in with the existing bindings.
But that is just my opinion which really doesn’t count for much as I’m not a maintainer at this time.
