Example Usage

Establishing connection with WolkAbout IoT platform:

wolkabout::Device device("DEVICE_KEY", "DEVICE_PASSWORD", {"ACTUATOR_REFERENCE_ONE", "ACTUATOR_REFERENCE_TWO"});

std::unique_ptr<wolkabout::Wolk> wolk =
  wolkabout::Wolk::newBuilder()
    .actuationHandler([](const std::string& deviceKey, const std::string& reference, const std::string& value) -> void {
        // TODO Invoke your code which activates actuator of specified device.

        std::cout << "Actuation request received - Key: " << deviceKey << " Reference: " << reference << " value: " << value << std::endl;
    })
    .actuatorStatusProvider([](const std::string& deviceKey, const std::string& reference) -> wolkabout::ActuatorStatus {
        // TODO Invoke code which reads the state of the actuator of specified device.

        if (deviceKey == "DEVICE_KEY" && reference == "SWITCH_ACTUATOR_REF") {
            return wolkabout::ActuatorStatus("true", wolkabout::ActuatorStatus::State::READY);

        return wolkabout::ActuatorStatus("", wolkabout::ActuatorStatus::State::READY);
    })
    .configurationHandler([](const std::map<std::string, std::string>& configuration) -> void {
        // TODO invoke code which sets device configuration
    })
    .configurationProvider([]() -> const std::map<std::string, std::string>& {
        // TODO invoke code which reads device configuration
        return std::map<std::string, std::string>();
    })
	.deviceStatusProvider([](const std::string& deviceKey) -> wolkabout::DeviceStatus {
        // TODO Invoke code which reads the status of specified device.

        if (deviceKey == "DEVICE_KEY")
        {
            return wolkabout::DeviceStatus::CONNECTED;
        }

        return wolkabout::DeviceStatus::OFFLINE;
    })
    .build();

    wolk->connect();

wolkabout::Device device1{"DEVICE_NAME", "DEVICE_KEY", deviceManifest};

wolk->addDevice(device);

Publishing sensor readings:

wolk->addSensorReading("DEVICE_KEY", "TEMPERATURE_REF", 23.4);
wolk->addSensorReading("DEVICE_KEY", "PRESSURE_REF", 1080);

wolk->addSensorReading("DEVICE_KEY_2", "ACCELEROMETER_REF", {0, -5, 10});

Publishing actuator statuses:

wolk->publishActuatorStatus("DEVICE_KEY", "SWITCH_ACTUATOR_REF");

This will invoke the ActuationStatusProvider to read the actuator status, and publish actuator status.

Publish device configuration to platform:

wolk->publishConfiguration("DEVICE_KEY");

This will invoke the ConfigurationProvider to read the configuration and publish it.

Publishing alarms:

wolk->addAlarm("DEVICE_KEY", "HUMIDITY_ALARM_REF", "ALARM_VALUE");

Data publish strategy:

Sensor readings, and alarms are pushed to WolkAbout IoT platform on demand by calling

wolk->publish();

wolk->publish("DEVICE_KEY");

Publishing without providing device key publishes all available data, whereas publishing with device key only data for the specified device is published

Actuator statuses are published automatically by calling:

wolk->publishActuatorStatus("DEVICE_KEY", "ACTUATOR_REFERENCE_ONE");

Configuration is published automatically by calling:

wolk->publishConfiguration("DEVICE_KEY");

Disconnecting from the platform:

wolk->disconnect();

Data persistence:

WolkAbout C++ Connector provides mechanism for persisting data in situations where readings can not be sent to WolkAbout Gateway.

Persisted readings are sent to WolkAbout Gateway once connection is established. Data persistence mechanism used by default stores data in-memory.

In cases when provided in-memory persistence is suboptimal, one can use custom persistence by implementing wolkabout::Persistence interface, and forwarding it to builder in following manner:

std::unique_ptr<wolkabout::Wolk> wolk =
  wolkabout::Wolk::newBuilder()
    .actuationHandler([](const std::string& deviceKey, const std::string& reference, const std::string& value) -> void {
        // TODO Invoke your code which activates actuator of specified device.

        std::cout << "Actuation request received - Key: " << deviceKey << " Reference: " << reference << " value: " << value << std::endl;
    })
    .actuatorStatusProvider([](const std::string& deviceKey, const std::string& reference) -> wolkabout::ActuatorStatus {
        // TODO Invoke code which reads the state of the actuator of specified device.

        if (deviceKey == "DEVICE_KEY" && reference == "SWITCH_ACTUATOR_REF") {
            return wolkabout::ActuatorStatus("true", wolkabout::ActuatorStatus::State::READY);

        return wolkabout::ActuatorStatus("", wolkabout::ActuatorStatus::State::READY);
    })
    .configurationHandler([](const std::map<std::string, std::string>& configuration) -> void {
        // TODO invoke code which sets device configuration
    })
    .configurationProvider([]() -> const std::map<std::string, std::string>& {
        // TODO invoke code which reads device configuration
        return std::map<std::string, std::string>();
    })
	.deviceStatusProvider([](const std::string& deviceKey) -> wolkabout::DeviceStatus {
        // TODO Invoke code which reads the status of specified device.

        if (deviceKey == "DEVICE_KEY")
        {
            return wolkabout::DeviceStatus::CONNECTED;
        }

        return wolkabout::DeviceStatus::OFFLINE;
    })
    .withPersistence(std::make_shared<CustomPersistenceImpl>()) // Enable data persistance via custom persistence mechanism
    .build();

    wolk->connect();

For more info on persistence mechanism see wolkabout::Persistence and wolkabout::InMemoryPersistence classes

Firmware Update

WolkAbout C++ Connector provides mechanism for updating devices' firmware. To enable firmware update one must provide implementation for wolkabout::FirmwareInstaller and wolkabout::FirmwareVersionProvider

See code snippet below on how to enable device firmware update for devices.

class CustomFirmwareInstaller: public wolkabout::FirmwareInstaller
{
public:
    void install(const std::string& deviceKey, const std::string& firmwareFile,
                 std::function<void(const std::string& deviceKey)> onSuccess,
                 std::function<void(const std::string& deviceKey)> onFail) override
    {
        // Mock install
        std::cout << "Updating firmware for device " << deviceKey << " with file " << firmwareFile << std::endl;

        onSuccess(deviceKey);
    }

    bool abort(const std::string& deviceKey) override
    {
        // Mock abort
        std::cout << "Aborting firmware installation for device " << deviceKey << std::endl;
        return false;
    }
};

class CustomFirmwareVersionProvider : public wolkabout::FirmwareVersionProvider
{
public:
    std::string getFirmwareVersion(const std::string& deviceKey)
    {
        // return firmware version for the device
        return "1.0";
    }
};

auto installer = std::make_shared<CustomFirmwareInstaller>();
auto provider = std::make_shared<CustomFirmwareVersionProvider>();

auto builder = wolkabout::Wolk::newBuilder()
    .actuationHandler([](const std::string& deviceKey, const std::string& reference, const std::string& value) -> void {
        // TODO Invoke your code which activates actuator of specified device.

        std::cout << "Actuation request received - Key: " << deviceKey << " Reference: " << reference << " value: " << value << std::endl;
    })
    .actuatorStatusProvider([](const std::string& deviceKey, const std::string& reference) -> wolkabout::ActuatorStatus {
        // TODO Invoke code which reads the state of the actuator of specified device.

        if (deviceKey == "DEVICE_KEY" && reference == "SWITCH_ACTUATOR_REF") {
            return wolkabout::ActuatorStatus("true", wolkabout::ActuatorStatus::State::READY);

        return wolkabout::ActuatorStatus("", wolkabout::ActuatorStatus::State::READY);
    })
    .configurationHandler([](const std::map<std::string, std::string>& configuration) -> void {
        // TODO invoke code which sets device configuration
    })
    .configurationProvider([]() -> const std::map<std::string, std::string>& {
        // TODO invoke code which reads device configuration
        return std::map<std::string, std::string>();
    })
    .deviceStatusProvider([](const std::string& deviceKey) -> wolkabout::DeviceStatus {
        // TODO Invoke code which reads the status of specified device.

        if (deviceKey == "DEVICE_KEY")
        {
            return wolkabout::DeviceStatus::CONNECTED;
        }

        return wolkabout::DeviceStatus::OFFLINE;
    })
    .withFirmwareUpdate(installer, provider)
    .build();
You can’t perform that action at this time.
