supporting stuff

using python 3

you need the ssl system packages because IOT requires ssl

python3 -m venv venv --system-site-packages
source venv/bin/activate
python3 -m pip install --user --upgrade pip
python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt
python3
import ssl
print (ssl.OPENSSL_VERSION)
OpenSSL 1.1.0j  20 Nov 2018

installing AWS IOT on the PI

git clone https://github.com/claytantor/flashlex-iot-python.git
cd flashlex-iot-python
sudo python setup.py install

keys

In order to connect a device, you need to download the following a certificate for this thing.

<my-iot-id>.cert.pem
A public key	<my-iot-id>.public.key
A private key	<my-iot-id>.private.key

pub sub

python basicPubSub.py -e <my-iot-endpoint>.iot.us-east-1.amazonaws.com -r ssl/AmazonRootCA1.pem -c ../keys/<my-iot-id>-certificate.pem.crt -k ../keys/<my-iot-id>-private.pem.key

steps

git clone https://github.com/claytantor/flashlex-pi.git
cd flashlex-pi/
pip install virtualenv
/home/pi/.local/bin/virtualenv venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install -r requirements.txt

creating the systemd service

Instructions for setting up your service can be found at https://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2015/10/how-to-autorun-a-python-script-on-boot-using-systemd/

sudo cp flashlex.service /lib/systemd/system/flashlex.service
sudo chmod 644 /lib/systemd/system/flashlex.service
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable flashlex.service

add logging to syslog

Then, assuming your distribution is using rsyslog to manage syslogs, create a file in /etc/rsyslog.d/<new_file>.conf with the following content:

if $programname == '<your program identifier>' then /path/to/log/file.log
& stop

restart rsyslog (sudo systemctl restart rsyslog) and enjoy! Your program stdout/stderr will still be available through journalctl (sudo journalctl -u ) but they will also be available in your file of choice.

sudo cp flashlex.conf /etc/rsyslog.d/flashlex.conf
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart flashlex.service
sudo systemctl restart rsyslog

check the status of the service

sudo systemctl status flashlex.service

rotating logs for your service

you will want to rotate logs so your disk doesnt fill up with logs. your conf file for logrotation looks like this in /etc/logrotate.conf:

/var/log/flashlex.log {
    daily
    missingok
    rotate 7
    maxage 7
    dateext
    dateyesterday
}

make a crontab that executes logrotate daily

/usr/sbin/logrotate /etc/logrotate.conf

bootstrap

python -u bootstrap.py -c keys/config-bootstrap.yml -d $(pwd)/data -k $(pwd)/keys

#collect a message

$ source venv/bin/activate
(venv) $ python -u collectmessage.py -c keys/config-bootstrap.yml -d $(pwd)/data -k $(pwd)/keys
starting flashelex app.
