Python-devicecloud is a library providing simple, intuitive access to Digi Device Cloud(sm) for clients written in Python.
The library wraps Device Cloud's REST API and hides the details of forming HTTP requests in order to gain access to device information, file data, streams, and other features of Device Cloud. The API can be found here.
The primary target audience for this library is individuals interfacing with Device Cloud from the server side or developers writing tools to aid device development. For efficient connectivity from devices, we suggest that you first look at using the Device Cloud Connector. That being said, this library could also be used on devices if deemed suitable.
The library provides access to a wide array of features, but here is a couple quick examples to give you a taste of what the API looks like.
from devicecloud import DeviceCloud dc = DeviceCloud('user', 'pass') # show the MAC address of all devices that are currently connected # # This is done using Device Cloud DeviceCore functionality print "== Connected Devices ==" for device in dc.devicecore.get_devices(): if device.is_connected(): print device.get_mac() # get the name and current value of all data streams having values # with a floating point type # # This is done using Device Cloud stream functionality for stream in dc.streams.get_streams(): if stream.get_data_type().lower() in ('float', 'double'): print "%s -> %s" % (stream.get_stream_id(), stream.get_current_value())
For more examples and detailed documentation, be sure to checkout out the Full API Documentation.
This library can be installed using pip. Python versions 2.7+ and 3+ are supported by the library.
pip install devicecloud
If you already have an older version of the library installed, you can upgrade to the latest version by doing
pip install --upgrade devicecloud
Eventually, it is hoped that there will be complete feature parity between Device Cloud API and this library. For now, however, that is not the case. The current features are supported by the library:
The following features are not supported at this time. Feedback on which features should be highest priority is always welcome.
Contributions to the library are very welcome in whatever form can be provided. This could include issue reports, bug fixes, or features additions. For issue reports, please create an issue against the Github project.
