All blink(1) software is open source. If you are a developer and are interested in how things work, check out the blink(1) github at

Of the software we produce for blink(1), we have three main efforts, with pages for each.

  • Blink1Control

    Easy-to-use Mac & Windows GUI application acting as blink(1) controller and IFTTT->blink(1) conduit.

  • blink1-tool

    Cross-platform command-line tool for controlling blink(1) directly, useful for sysadmins operating “headless” computers.

  • Libraries / SDKs / APIs

    Libraries in your favorite programming language to control blink(1).

Additionally we have a bunch of “tiny” apps using the APIs to show what is possible, like “BlinkATweet” and “Blink1ColorOrgan”.
