octo-client

A Node module for remotely accessing an OctoPrint instance

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code server-side.

OctoPrint is the leading web software for controlling 3D printers, created/maintained by Gina Häußge

OctoPi is a Raspberry-specific distro of OctoPrint, maintained by Guy Sheffer

Overview

OctoPrint's REST API allows the printer to be queried and activities managed. This Node module is a wrapper for making those calls.

Installation

This module is intended to be added like you would any other as found on npmjs.com.

cd ~/MyNodeApp
npm install --save octo-client

install size

Configuration

Next, you'll need to edit your appdir's node_modules/octo-client/config.js file to enter your printer's hostName ("octopi.local" by default) and apiKey (found under OctoPrint -> Settings -> API). Optionally, change the port as well from the default 80 to something else like 5000, for example.

Usage

Review the examples.js file for the various calls to the interface.

var OctoPrint = require('octo-client');

OctoPrint.printerState(function(response){
  console.log(response);
});

Assuming that the printer is up and available on your network by its hostname, running the code snippet above should display something like:

{ state: 
   { flags: 
      { cancelling: false,
        closedOrError: false,
        error: false,
        operational: true,
        paused: false,
        pausing: false,
        printing: false,
        ready: true,
        sdReady: false },
     text: 'Operational' },
  temperature: { tool0: { actual: 27.5, offset: 0, target: 0 } } }

Programmatically then, it should be possible to do more interesting things like the following...

var OctoPrint = require('octo-client');

OctoPrint.printerState(function(ptr){
  if (ptr.state.flags.operational) {
    var targetHotend1 = ptr.temperature.tool0.target;
    console.log(targetHotend1);
  }
});

Methods

version

OctoPrint.version(callback);

{ api: '0.1', server: '1.3.8' }

See the printerState documentation below for error conditions.

connection

OctoPrint.connection(callback);

When the printer is on but not in the Connected state:

{ current: 
   { baudrate: null,
     port: null,
     printerProfile: '_default',
     state: 'Closed' },
  options: 
   { baudratePreference: null,
     baudrates: [ 250000, 230400, 115200, 57600, 38400, 19200, 9600 ],
     portPreference: null,
     ports: [ '/dev/ttyACM0' ],
     printerProfilePreference: '_default',
     printerProfiles: [ [Object] ] } }

...and when the printer is in the Connected state:

{ current: 
   { baudrate: 0,
     port: 'AUTO',
     printerProfile: '_default',
     state: 'Operational' },
  options: 
   { baudratePreference: null,
     baudrates: [ 250000, 230400, 115200, 57600, 38400, 19200, 9600 ],
     portPreference: null,
     ports: [ '/dev/ttyACM0' ],
     printerProfilePreference: '_default',
     printerProfiles: [ [Object] ] } }

See the printerState documentation below for error conditions.

connect

OctoPrint.connect(callback);

{ status: 'Success' }

See the printerState documentation below for error conditions.

disconnect

OctoPrint.disconnect(callback);

{ status: 'Success' }

See the printerState documentation below for error conditions.

files

OctoPrint.files(bRecursive = false, callback);

A true value as the first argument will include all subfolders under the local directory which is a synonym for uploads. A false or null value only shows the files in that folder.

file

OctoPrint.file(path, callback);

A filename value as the first argument will query information about that file. A typical value might be 3DBenchy.gcode. The path is relative to the uploads folder as the root; a beginning slash is unnecessary.

See the printerState documentation below for error conditions.

selectFile

OctoPrint.file(path, bPrint, callback);

A filename value as the first argument will select that file. A typical value might be 3DBenchy.gcode. The path is relative to the uploads folder as the root; a beginning slash is unnecessary.

The second argument as true will start the print. A value of false does not automatically start the print.

{ status: 'Success' }

printerState

OctoPrint.printerState(callback);

{ state:

        closedOrError: false,
        error: false,

        pausing: false,
        printing: false,
        ready: true,
        sdReady: false },
     text: 'Operational' },
  temperature: {} }

...and when the printer can be reached but is not in the Connected state...

{ status: 'Printer is not operational' }

...and when the printer is off:

{ status: 'Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND octopi.local' }

...and if the node_modules/octo-client/config.js has the wrong apiKey value:

{ status: 'Invalid API key' }

...or the value is empty:

{ status: 'Config error: No apiKey set in node_modules/octo-client/config.js file' }

config.apiKey

Please set the config.apiKey value as described in the Configuration section above.

config.hostName

If you have changed the default name of the OctoPi-imaged printer, then you should also edit this entry in the node_modules/octo-client folder. Remember to append .local after the hostname's value.

config.port

If you aren't running from the OctoPi image or if you haven't installed haproxy, you may need to update the port variable to 5000 by editing this entry in the node_modules/octo-client folder.

DNS failure

If the config.hostName as given isn't found on the network due to the printer being off or due to a name resolution failure, any of the methods will return, for example:

{ status: 'Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND octopi.local' }

Microsoft clients do not have the Bonjour protocol loaded by default and may have difficulty finding an OctoPrint instance by its hostname. This module supports using the local IP address for the config.hostName value.
