Build Status

Help us help you with our IoT SDKs!

We are running a survey through August 2020 to learn more about your IoT projects and support needs. Our team will use this information to help shape the future of our IoT SDKs, and, if you choose to provide your contact information, we'll include you in our circle of advisors for early feedback. Consider spending ~5 minutes completing this survey-- we'd love to hear from you!

Getting Started

Why Azure IoT?

Click here to learn how Azure IoT can empower the digital transformation of your organization.

New to Azure IoT Hub?

Introduction to Azure IoT Hub: Follow this guide to learn how to set up an IoT Hub and IoT Hub devices.

New to the Azure IoT Node.JS SDK?

Try a Device Sample: Create a basic Node.js application following one of the device client library samples provided.

Components

The Azure IoT Node.js SDK enables developers to create IoT solutions written in Node.js for the Azure IoT platform. It is composed of the following client libraries:

  • Device Client Library: to connect devices and IoT Edge modules to Azure IoT Hub. API Reference | README
    • Note: IoT Edge for Node.js is scoped to Linux containers & devices only. Learn more about using Linux containers for IoT edge on Windows devices.
  • Service Client Library: enables developing back-end applications making use of Azure IoT Hub. API Reference
  • Provisioning Device Client Library: to connect devices to the Azure IoT Provisioning Service. API Reference
  • Provisioning Service Client Library: enables developing back-end applications making use of the Azure IoT Provisioning Service. API Reference

Platform Compatibility

The Azure IoT SDK for Node.js supports the LTS and Current versions of the Node.js runtime.

Long Term Support

The project offers a Long Term Support (LTS) version to allow users that do not need the latest features to be shielded from unwanted changes.

The maintenance lifetime of an LTS branch is currently planned for 12 months. LTS branches receive all bug fixes that fall in one of these categories:

  • security bugfixes
  • critical bugfixes (crashes, memory leaks, etc.)

No new features or improvements will be picked up in an LTS branch.

LTS branches are named lts_mm_yyyy, where mm and yyyy are the month and year when the branch was created. An example of such a branch is lts_07_2017.

Schedule1

Below is a table showing the mapping of the LTS branches to the package versions released

NPM Package Github Branch LTS Status LTS Start Date Maintenance End Date Removed Date
1.11.x lts_09_2019 Active 2019-09-09 2020-09-09 2021-03-09
1.17.x lts_07_2020 Active 2020-07-28 2021-07-28 2022-01-28

1 All scheduled dates are subject to change by the Azure IoT SDK team.

New LTS branches will generally be released around the midpoint of the current LTS.
