    I would like to open something like bluetoothctl and interact with it.
    For example:
    [bluetoothctl] menu gatt
    [bluetoothctl] register-
    service 0xFFFF # (Choose yes when asked if primary service)
    [NEW] Primary 
    [/org/bluez/app/service0x10e51e0] Primary (yes/no): yes
    [bluetoothctl] register-characteristic 
    0xAAAA read       # (Select a value of 1 when prompted)
    [NEW] Characteristic
    [/org/bluez/app/service0x10e51e0/chrc0x10e5688] Enter value: 
    [bluetoothctl] register-
    application # (This commits the services/characteristics and registers the profile)
    [bluetoothctl] back
    [bluetoothctl] advertise on
    So I'd need to generate an event everytime the shell writes something.

    Is it possible ?

    Thank you

    Not so simple but it is possible. You can start the process with InputStreamEnabled set to True and run it with RunWithOutputEvents. This will allow you to read the process output and write to the process input.

    Note that the output events are raised on background threads.
