This spec talks about IR-programmer. A program to ease the creation of Remote profiles for your Ubuntu System. Also creating templates for your programs so that they can easily be used with Ubuntu and your Remote.


As powerful that the IRDA website is about creating remote control software. It is an almost ALL text based experience, and because the people programming for it are all hardcore programmers, The program has almost zero functionality for a normal user. Bleh. I want to create a front end to ease all those troubles and make life easy for the user again.

Use cases



Python will be used for everything that I program. But various programs from the Linux world will be used to record remote signals and work with the data. This is a very useful program to glue everything together.


There are no previous implementations for this that I have found. I am rather surprised as I think it would be useful for those having remotes in Linux.


Code will be entirely Python Programming. Created using the Python Plugin for Eclipse.

Unresolved issues

IR-Programmer has neither been accepted or rejected as a Google Summer of Code Project.
