XBMC Scrrensaver for raspberry

Post by armitatz »

I am using deluge to my raspberry pi. I have deluge running with xbmc at the same time with the following settings in deluge:
active torrents : 4, max downloading : 2, max uploading : 4, max speed : 800kb

I also have the scheduler plugin and I have set it so that in the time zone between 1:00am until 8:00am the above settings become
active torrents : 8, max downloading : 8, max uploading : 8, max speed : 1024kb

So at night I have deluge running fast and at day it is running slow.
The question is : Could deluge config module http://deluge-torrent.org/docs/current/ ... onfig.html be implemented into a xbmc screensaver frame like this https://github.com/dersphere/script.screensaver.test ?
Since they are both in python my idea is that a scrrensaver could be made so that when xbmc does not work and it is in scrrenasaver mode it could switch deluge to a fast setting. When the screensaver exits it could send from the config manager the command to deluge to enter to a slow setting. The idea is that since xbmc is in scrrensaver mode and obviously not in use, deluge could run faster.
The problem is that I don't know python otherwise I could do it myself.
Any interested reader to combine these two things for the creation of a delugesaver?

So the screensaver frame could be like that (in pseudocode)

Code: Select all

import sys
import xbmcaddon
import xbmcgui
import xbmc
------------------------------------------------
import deluge.configmanager
------------------------------------------------

Addon = xbmcaddon.Addon('script.screensaver.test')
__scriptname__ = Addon.getAddonInfo('name')
__path__ = Addon.getAddonInfo('path')
class Screensaver(xbmcgui.WindowXMLDialog):
    class ExitMonitor(xbmc.Monitor):
        def __init__(self, exit_callback):
            self.exit_callback = exit_callback
        def onScreensaverDeactivated(self):
            print '3 ExitMonitor: sending exit_callback'
            self.exit_callback()
    def onInit(self):
        print '2 Screensaver: onInit'
        self.monitor = self.ExitMonitor(self.exit)
     
     LOAD CONFIG DICTIONARY FAST
     SET CONFIG VALUES

    def exit(self):
        print '4 Screensaver: Exit requested'

     LOAD CONFIG DICTIONARY LOW
     SET CONFIG VALUES

        self.close()
if __name__ == '__main__':
    print '1 Python Screensaver Started'
    screensaver_gui = Screensaver(
            'script-%s-main.xml' % __scriptname__,
            __path__,
            'default',
        )
    screensaver_gui.doModal()
    print '5 Python Screensaver Exited'
    del screensaver_gui
    sys.modules.clear()
