Expert Kx developer JP Armstrong recently added an interesting kdb+/q project to GitHub.

It is a small web application to control the lights in his apartment. It does this by wrapping Philips Hue’s comprehensive REST API into simple functions that turn on/off lights, change “scene”, and schedule light changes through URL GET calls. The project also comes with the ability to get today’s sunset time and schedule the lights to turn on 30 minutes in advance.

Check out JP’s project on GitHub.
