How to add support for a new API

Here we discuss how to extend this package to support new devices with APIs that are not currently covered.


There are only a few steps required.

  • add a new python file to the devices folder. Copying would be an excellent start. The new class in the new file will be a subclass of MaasConfig

  • Implement your own versions of turn_on, turn_off, query_state.

  • if you need any addition configuration information in the config file then add some more dataclass properties (e.g. see device_id in

  • make sure that the new class is reference in __main__ by adding it to required_to_find_subclasses list.

  • regenerate a schema for helping define the configuration file

    • maaspower schema <path to new schema file>
