Simple projects to show interaction between Delphi and Raspberry Pi

Delphi version node version

License: MIT License.

Setup

Create webapi folder

Copy content of repository (src/RaspberryPi) into webapi folder

run the following commands:

sudo npm i
npm run build
npm start

Screenshot

Web API in action

var http = require('http');
var express = require('express');
var ping = require('ping');
var app = express();
var DEFAULT_PORT = 3000

// configure Express to deliver index.html and any other static pages stored in the home directory
app.use(express.static(__dirname));

// Express route for incoming requests with method status/xxx where xxx is the machineName
app.get('/status/:machinename', function (req, res) {
    console.log('id = ' + req.params.machinename);
    ping.sys.probe(req.params.machinename, function (isAlive) {
        var msg = isAlive ? 'host ' + req.params.machinename + ' is alive' : 'host ' + req.params.machinename + ' is dead';
        console.log(msg);
        var s = [{host: isAlive ? 'alive' : 'dead'}];
        res.status(200).send(s);
    });
});

## Delphi App in action
//Example - create list of nodes to scan:
  listNodes := TList<TNode>.create();
  listNodes.Add(TNode.Create('status/picontroller'));
  listNodes.Add(TNode.Create('status/pi01'));
  listNodes.Add(TNode.Create('status/pi02'));
  listNodes.Add(TNode.Create('status/pi03'));

//Use this list to loop through and request the correct node:
procedure TNodeThread.Execute;
var
  node : TNode;
  jValue: TJSONValue;
  LJsonArr   : TJSONArray;
  LJsonValue : TJSONValue;
  LItem : TJSONValue;
  status : string;
begin
  Synchronize(
    procedure ()
    begin
        FAniIndicator.Visible := true;
        FAniIndicator.Enabled := true;
    end
  );

  for node in FListNodes do
  begin
    FRequest.Resource := node.Action;
    try
      FRequest.Execute;
      jValue := FResponse.JSONValue;
      LJsonArr := TJSONObject.ParseJSONValue(TEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(jValue.ToString),0) as TJSONArray;
      //Process results
    except
      on e : Exception do
      begin
        Synchronize(
          procedure ()
          begin
              node.labelNode.Text := 'Timeout';
              node.RoundRect.Fill.Color := node.ColorOff;
          end
        );
      end;
    end;
  end;

  Synchronize(
    procedure ()
    begin
        FAniIndicator.Visible := false;
        FAniIndicator.Enabled := false;
    end
  );
end;
