- Compatibile with USB-based NFC readers via PCSC interface. PCSC API is available on Linux, OSX and Windows. Linux support includes support for Raspberry Pi.
- Compatibile with Android mobile phones and their built-in NFC readers. This is done using Kivy cross application Python framework and native Android APIs via pyjnius Python to Java bridging.
- Only some of the commands are implemented in the current alpha quality version, please feel free to add more.
- Compatible with Python 2 and Python 3
The communication protocol specification is not public. The work is based on reverse engineering existing open source DESFire projects, namely Android host card emulation for DESFire and MIFARE SDK.
