yadtreceiver Build Status

Executes yadtshell commands triggered by a yadtbroadcaster.


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 = devyadt
targets_directory = /etc/yadtshell/targets
script_to_execute = /usr/bin/yadtshell

host = broadcaster.domain.tld
port = 8081

active = yes
host = graphite.domain.tld
port = 2003

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
