iofog-python-sdk

This module lets you easily build an ioElement. It gives you all the functionality to interact with ioFog via Local API. It contains all necessary methods for IoMessage transformation as well.

  • send new message to ioFog (post_message)
  • fetch next unread messages from ioFog (get_next_messages)
  • fetch messages for time period and list of accessible publishers (get_next_messages_from_publishers_within_timeframe)
  • get config options (get_config)
  • create IoMessage, encode(decode) to(from) raw bytes, marshall(unmarshall) into(from) JSON object (IoMessage class methods)
  • connect to ioFog Control Channel via WebSocket (establish_control_ws_connection)
  • connect to ioFog Message Channel via WebSocket (establish_message_ws_connection) and publish new message via this channel (post_message_via_socket)

Code snippets:

Install python package:

sudo python2 -m pip install iofog-python-sdk

Import iofog client and additional classes to your project:

from iofog_python_sdk.client import IoFogClient
from iofog_python_sdk.exception import IoFogException
from iofog_python_sdk.iomessage import IoMessage
from iofog_python_sdk.listener import *

Create IoFog client with default settings:

try:
    client = IoFogClient()
except IoFogException as e:
 # client creation failed, e contains description

Or specify host, port, ssl and container id explicitly:

try:
    client = IoFogClient(id='container_id', host='iofog_host', port=6666)
except IoFogException as e:
 # client creation failed, e contains description

REST calls

Get list of next unread IoMessages:

try:
    messages = client.get_next_messages()
except IoFogException as e:
 # some error occurred, e contains description

Post new IoMessage to ioFog via REST call:

msg=IoMessage()
msg.infotype="infotype"
msg.infoformat="infoformat"
msg.contentdata="sdkjhwrtiy8wrtgSDFOiuhsrgowh4touwsdhsDFDSKJhsdkljasjklweklfjwhefiauhw98p328946982weiusfhsdkufhaskldjfslkjdhfalsjdf=serg4towhr"
msg.contextdata=""
msg.tag="tag"
msg.groupid="groupid"
msg.authid="authid"
msg.authgroup="authgroup"
msg.hash="hash"
msg.previoushash="previoushash"
msg.nonce="nonce"

try:
    receipt = client.post_message(msg)
except IoFogException, e:
 # some error occurred, e contains description

Get an array of IoMessages from specified publishers within given timeframe:

query = {
    	'timeframestart': 1234567890123,
    	'timeframeend': 1234567890123,
    	'publishers': ['sefhuiw4984twefsdoiuhsdf', 'd895y459rwdsifuhSDFKukuewf', 'SESD984wtsdidsiusidsufgsdfkh']
}
try:
    query_response = client.get_next_messages_from_publishers_within_timeframe(query)
except IoFogException, e:
 # some error occurred, e contains description

Get container's config:

try:
    config = client.get_config()
except IoFogException, ex:
 # some error occurred, ex contains description

WebSocket calls

To use websocket connections you should implement listeners as follows:

class MyControlListener(IoFogControlWsListener):
    def on_control_signal(self):
        # do smth on control signal


class MyMessageListener(IoFogMessageWsListener):
    def on_receipt(self, message_id, timestamp):
        # do smth with message receipt

    def on_message(self, io_msg):
        # do smth with new message

After that you can establish websocket connections:

client.establish_message_ws_connection(MyMessageListener())
client.establish_control_ws_connection(MyControlListener())

Each of those connections will be managed in a separate thread.

After successful connection to message websocket you can send to it:

client.post_message_via_socket(io_msg_instance)

Message utils

Construct IoMessage from JSON(both json string and python dictionary are acceptable):

msg = IoMessage.from_json(json_msg)

IoMessage to JSON:

json_str = io_msg_instance.to_json()

Construct IoMessage from raw bytes:

msg = IoMessage.from_bytearray([0, 4, ...])

Pack IoMessage into bytearray:

msg_bytes = io_msg_instance.to_bytearray()
