Developing hue app without owning the bulbs/hub?

Hi there developers,

I need your help… I just had an idea about a new app for Philips hue bulbs, however I don’t have the starter kit myself, and it’s quite expansive. I’ve seen the API, the only thing missing is the Philips bridge. Is there a way to develop something for Philips hue without physically having the bridge?

Thanks a lot for your answers.

Great question. I struggled with this at first, too and thought there are no solutions to this until one of my friends told me about this: http://steveyo.github.io/Hue-Emulator/ It is exactly what you need. The Philips hue simulator and you can get started without having the bulbs. Good luck with your project.
