Python control of Broadlink RM2 wifi remote

I recently got a Broadlink wifi remote.  I have been playing around trying to send commands to it with python.  I found code on github that does most of what I need.  It looks like the device itself doesn't learn any remote codes.  It is all in the app.  The code I found can send codes to the device and get codes from learning mode.
I have a bunch of buttons programmed in the app already.  I wanted to see if I could get those codes.  I think I got them today.  The app, called eControls, allows you to backup your setup.  Today I was able to get my backup file from their backup site.
Tomorrow I will try to use the codes from the backup.
