Documentation

This adapter lets you control internet radios and media playsers based on Frontier Silicon chipsets. Many devices which can be controlled via Undok should work. Tested devices come from Revo, Sangean and SilverCrest, others should work, too.

After installation the device's IP and PIN must be entered in the configuration dialog. If the radio does not play DAB after switching on via Undok or this adapter try with "DAB starts without sound" enabled.

When the adapter starts for the first time it collects information about the device. For that it needs to switch through all modes. During checking settings the device will be muted for a few seconds to avoid disturbing sounds.

While the adapter reads the device's setting objects and states are created. States can be read-only (ro) or read-write (rw) ok, write-only for buttons is also possible.

  • audio

    Basic audio settings. No equalizer controls implemented yet.

    • maxVolume (number, ro)

      The maximum volume selectable

    • mute (boolean, rw)

      true if the device is muted, falseotherwise

    • {number}

      • id (text, ro)

        The name of that mode

        true if this mode can be manually selected.

      • streamable (boolean, ro)

        Only present on multi-room enabled devices. true if this mode can be used as source for several multi-room devices.

      • switchTo

        Selects that mode.

      • presets

        • availabe (boolean, ro)

          Indicates whether presets for this mode are available

        • {number}

          The index of that mode. Equals mode.*.presets.{number} from object tree and can be written into modes.selectPreset.

        • name (text, ro)

          The name of that preset

        • switchTo

Getting started

You are almost done, only a few steps left:

  1. Create a new repository on GitHub with the name ioBroker.frontier_silicon

  2. Push all files to the GitHub repo. The creator has already set up the local repository for you:

    git push origin master
  3. Add a new secret under https://github.com/halloamt/ioBroker.frontier_silicon/settings/secrets. It must be named AUTO_MERGE_TOKEN and contain a personal access token with push access to the repository, e.g. yours. You can create a new token under https://github.com/settings/tokens.

  4. Head over to main.js and start programming!

Best Practices

We've collected some best practices regarding ioBroker development and coding in general. If you're new to ioBroker or Node.js, you should check them out. If you're already experienced, you should also take a look at them - you might learn something new :)

Scripts in package.json

Several npm scripts are predefined for your convenience. You can run them using npm run <scriptname>

Script name Description
test:js Executes the tests you defined in *.test.js files.
test:package Ensures your package.json and io-package.json are valid.
test Performs a minimal test run on package files and your tests.
lint Runs ESLint to check your code for formatting errors and potential bugs.

Writing tests

When done right, testing code is invaluable, because it gives you the confidence to change your code while knowing exactly if and when something breaks. A good read on the topic of test-driven development is https://hackernoon.com/introduction-to-test-driven-development-tdd-61a13bc92d92. Although writing tests before the code might seem strange at first, but it has very clear upsides.

The template provides you with basic tests for the adapter startup and package files. It is recommended that you add your own tests into the mix.

Publishing the adapter

Since you have chosen GitHub Actions as your CI service, you can enable automatic releases on npm whenever you push a new git tag that matches the form v<major>.<minor>.<patch>. The necessary steps are described in .github/workflows/test-and-release.yml.

To get your adapter released in ioBroker, please refer to the documentation of ioBroker.repositories.

Test the adapter manually on a local ioBroker installation

In order to install the adapter locally without publishing, the following steps are recommended:

  1. Create a tarball from your dev directory:
    npm pack
  2. Upload the resulting file to your ioBroker host
  3. Install it locally (The paths are different on Windows):
    cd /opt/iobroker
    npm i /path/to/tarball.tgz

For later updates, the above procedure is not necessary. Just do the following:

  1. Overwrite the changed files in the adapter directory (/opt/iobroker/node_modules/iobroker.frontier_silicon)
  2. Execute iobroker upload frontier_silicon on the ioBroker host
