I'm looking into a project and wanted a general idea if it's something within the capabilities the arduino can deliver.
Basically I've got a program in python which will check the status of some software. Based on that status I want it to alter LEDs which will be front mounted to the case.
Is it possible to send instruction to the arduino via USB from a python script?
Ideally (in my mind) I would program the arduino to check for flags of some type (I.e. if status = off then LED red = on) then based on the checks the python script would carry out, It would send the change to the arduino so it knows the flag has changed.
I have programmed for years I expect it's something in time I could learn but I wanted some general guidance on if it's doable and what route / hardware would be best.
