yadtreceiver Build Status

Executes yadtshell commands triggered by a yadtbroadcaster.

Big picture

big picture : yadtreceiver with broadcaster and yadtshell


Since yadtreceiver is a python application you can install it using pip

sudo pip install yadtreceiver

Unfortunately tar will not set the permissions as required:

sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/yadtreceiver


Put a file called receiver.cfg into the directory /etc/yadtshell/

log_filename = /var/log/yadtreceiver.log
targets = dev*
targets_directory = /etc/yadtshell/targets
script_to_execute = /usr/bin/yadtshell

host = broadcaster.domain.tld
port = 8081

targets is a whitelist with glob-like expressions, like foo* will match everything starting with foo, e.g. foobar, foobaz, etc. The receiver will watch the targets directory for target configurations which names are covered by the whitelist and subscribe to them without the need to restart the receiver.

Starting service

After installation you will find a minimal service script in /etc/init.d. Maybe you want/need to modify the script to make it fit to your *nix distribution.

sudo service yadtreceiver start


The receiver can be operated in a cluster by subscribing several receivers to the same target. They will then decide which receiver fulfills the request by issuing votes and using the following state machine:
