NGSI Type Browser widget

The NGSI Type Browser widgets allows you to browser the entities types used in a given Orion Context Broker server in a easy and paginated way. This is done using the contextTypes querys, so updates made into the context broker are not reflected immediately when using this widget.

Latest version of this widget is always provided in FIWARE Lab where you can make use of it on the Mashup portal. Remember to take a look into the example mashups provided in the OrionStarterKit offering.


Be sure to have installed Node.js. For example, you can install it on Ubuntu and Debian running the following commands:

curl -sL | sudo bash -
sudo apt-get install nodejs
sudo apt-get install npm

Install other npm dependencies by running:

npm install

For build the widget you need download grunt:

sudo npm install -g grunt-cli

And now, you can use grunt:


If everything goes well, you will find a wgt file in the dist folder.


Documentation about how to use this widget is available on the User Guide. Anyway, you can find general information about how to use widgets on the WireCloud's User Guide available on Read the Docs.
