KNoT Cloud WebSocket library for NodeJS and browser

A client side library that provides a WebSocket abstraction to the KNoT Cloud for Node.js and browser applications.

Quickstart

Install

npm install --save @cesarbr/knot-cloud-websocket

Run

KNoTCloudWebSocket connects to <protocol>://<hostname>:<port>/<pathname> using ID and token as credentials. Replace this address with your protocol adapter instance and the credentials with valid ones.

const KNoTCloudWebSocket = require('@cesarbr/knot-cloud-websocket');
const client = new KNoTCloudWebSocket({
  protocol: 'wss',
  hostname: 'ws.knot.cloud',
  port: 443,
  pathname: '/',
  id: '78159106-41ca-4022-95e8-2511695ce64c',
  token: 'd5265dbc4576a88f8654a8fc2c4d46a6d7b85574',
});
 
client.on('ready', () => {
  client.register({
    id: '6e5a681b2ae7be40',
    type: 'knot:thing',
    name: 'Door Lock',
  });
});
client.on('registered', (thing) => {
  console.log('Registered', thing);
  client.close();
});
client.connect();

Events

Events can be listened to by registering a handler with on(). The handler will receive an object in the following format:

Event: "registered"

Triggered when a device is registered on the cloud. Only apps ('knot:app') and users receive this event.

Payload

An object containing the registered device.

Example

{
  from: '78159106-41ca-4022-95e8-2511695ce64c',
  payload: {
    type: 'knot:thing',
    metadata: { name: 'Door Lock' },
    knot: {
      gateways: [ '78159106-41ca-4022-95e8-2511695ce64c' ],
      id: '6e5a681b2ae7be40',
    },
  },
}

Event: "unregistered"

Triggered when a device is unregistered from the cloud. Only apps ('knot:app') and users receive this event.

Payload

No payload. The ID of the unregistered device will come in the from field.

Example

{
  from: '6e5a681b2ae7be40'
}

Event: "data"

Triggered when a device publishes data items. Only apps 'knot:app' and users receive this event.

Payload

An object in the following format:

  • sensorId Number Sensor ID. Value between 0 and the maximum number of sensors defined for that thing.
  • value String|Boolean|Number Sensor value. Strings must be Base64 encoded.

Example

{
  from: '6e5a681b2ae7be40',
  payload: {
    sensorId: 253,
    value: true,
  },
}

Event: "command"

Triggered when a device of type 'knot:app' sends a command. Currently supported commands are getData and setData. Only things ('knot:thing') receive this event.

Payload

An object in the following format:

  • name String Command name.
  • args Any (Optional) Command-defined arguments.

Example

{
  from: '78159106-41ca-4022-95e8-2511695ce64c',
  payload: {
    name: 'getData',
