The SPARTA API

Sparta Core edited this page Nov 5, 2017 · 11 revisions

Description

The SPARTA API allows interaction with SPARTA nodes using HTTP requests to port 8080. Most HTTP requests can use either the GET or POST methods, but some API calls accept only the POST method for security reasons. Responses are returned as JSON objects.

Each API call is documented below, with definitions given for HTTP request parameters and JSON response fields, followed by an example:

  • The JSON response fields are each followed by one of S for string, A for array, O for object, N for number or B for boolean.
  • In the examples, the SPARTA node is represented as localhost and requests and responses are formatted for easy reading; line breaks and spaces are not actually used except in some parameter values. All requests are in URL format which implies the HTTP GET method. When GET is allowed, the URL can be entered into a browser URL field but proper URL encoding is usually required (e.g., spaces in a parameter value must be replaced by + or %20). Otherwise, the URL should be used as a guide to preparing an HTTP POST request using cURL, for example.
All API calls can be viewed and tested at http://localhost:8080/test while the local server node is running. For specific API calls, use http://localhost:8080/test?requestType=specificRequestType.

This document corresponds to SPARTA Version 1.0.0.

General Notes

Note: To create a new event listener, omit both add and remove. To remove an existing event listener, set remove to true and omit event; all registered events will be removed, any outstanding Event Wait will be completed and the listener will be deactivated.

Note: An event listener is automatically deactivated whenever all registered events are removed or if Event Wait is not called frequently enough, according to the spa.apiEventTimeout property. The timeout is not precise; the removal process runs every spa.apiEventTimeout / 2 seconds, so that many extra seconds may elapse before removal; the first Event Wait call should be made immediately after registration to avoid deactivation.

Note: Each API user (with a unique address) can create only one event listener. When a new one is created, it will replace an existing one. The maximum number of unique users is controlled by the spa.maxEventUsers property.

Response:

Notes: The call returns immediately if one or more events have occurred since the last call; multiple events are all returned together. If a new call is made before the last one returns, the timeout timer resets to the new value. Event registration expires if wait calls are not made frequently enough, according to the spa.apiEventTimeout property.

  • events (A) is an array of event objects each of which has the following fields:
    • name (S) is the name of the event
