Soft launch of our Linux SDK today!! Please have a look at the lib and comment at Github.
Good news! With Flic 2 we will publish the communication protocol so that it can be connected to anything with BLE. https://flic.io/flic2

As I understand it Flic doesn't completely use the Bluetooth LE standard and they added some things of their own. That probably means standard BTLE tools and libraries won't work with it. I tried connecting to it using gatttool, but it only seemed to connect briefly (about a second) and I wasn't able to send or receive any data. I unfortunately don't know enough about BTLE to hack my way forward further.
If I remember correctly, in the Indiegogo comments they did say they had a Linux library for internal use, which they might release later. I'd rather directly use BTLE, but as that doesn't seem to be an option I guess we'll have to wait until they release the library.
