Documentation Status Nuget Discord

NZXTSharp is a C# package that allows interaction with NZXT's Hue+. Support for other devices will be coming.

You can find NZXTSharp on NuGet here.

Please keep in mind that NZXTSharp is in development, and will have breaking changes in the future.

Documentation can be found at NZXTSharp's page. Docs are built from the docs branch.


NZXTSharp's syntax is lightweight, only taking a few lines to get started.

using NZXTSharp;
using NZXTSharp.Devices;
using NZXTSharp.Effects;

HuePlus hue = new HuePlus(); // Create device
Fixed effect = new Fixed(new Color(255, 255, 255)); // Make fixed effect
hue.ApplyEffect(hue.Both, effect); // Apply effect


Q: Are there any plans to make an SDK in XX language? A: As of yet, no. I am focusing on support for the .NET framework. Python is most likely next.

Q: Is XX device supported? A: Next up on the list are KrakenX devices, after that, the Hue 2 will most likely be next.
