wisebed.js-scripts ==================


A set of experimentation scripts and a command line interface (CLI) for wisebed.js.

"wisebed.js is a JavaScript-based client library that builds upon the REST API defined for the newest version of the WISEBED backend system Testbed Runtime. It uses HTTP requests/responses for most management operations and the WebSocket for communication with the sensor nodes serial port. wisebed.js-scripts is a collection of command-line scripts built upon wisebed.js, offering the same (and a bit more) functionality than the well-known but nowadays technically outdated experimentation-scripts."

Install node.js first, then:

git clone
cd wisebed.js-scripts
npm install

wb COMMAND_NAME --help
