Documentation

Examples

dbus-tools

The /doc/dbus-tools folder contains dbus-send and dbus-register test pages. Cloudeebus runs in opendoor mode, the dbus-tools pages have no manifest.

cloudeebus.py --debug --opendoor --port=9001 &
firefox ./doc/dbus-tools/dbus-register.html ./doc/dbus-tools/dbus-send.html &

sample

The /doc/sample folder contains a working sample using credentials, whitelist and manifest. Cloudeebus runs with credentials and a whitelist that are matched by the sample page manifest.

cloudeebus.py --debug --credentials=./doc/sample/CREDENTIALS --whitelist=./doc/sample/WHITELIST &
firefox ./doc/sample/cloudeebus.html &

The sample page is also online as a live demo.

agent

The /doc/agent folder contains a working client sample using credentials, whitelist and manifest and a working service sample using credentials, servicelist and manifest. One instance of cloudeebus runs with credentials and a whitelist that are matched by the client page manifest.

cloudeebus.py --debug --credentials=./doc/agent/CREDENTIALS --whitelist=./doc/agent/SAMPLELIST -p 9002 &
firefox ./doc/agent/client.html &

The other instance of cloudeebus runs with credentials and a servicelist that are matched by the server page manifest.

cloudeebus.py --debug --credentials=./doc/agent/CREDENTIALS --servicelist=./doc/agent/SAMPLELIST -p 9003 &
firefox ./doc/agent/server.html &
