Usage

To use the library, you need to be a registered user. If this is not the case, create your account at <http://beebotte.com> and note your access credentials.

As a reminder, Beebotte resource description uses a two levels hierarchy:

  • Channel: physical or virtual connected object (an application, an arduino, a coffee machine, etc) providing some resources
  • Resource: most elementary part of Beebotte, this is the actual data source (e.g. temperature from a domotics sensor)

Beebotte Constructor

Use your account API and secret keys to initialize Beebotte connector:

from beebotte import *

_accesskey  = 'YOUR_API_KEY'
_secretkey  = 'YOUR_SECRET_KEY'
_hostname   = 'api.beebotte.com'
bbt = BBT( _accesskey, _secretkey, hostname = _hostname)

Reading Data

You can read data from one of your channel resources using:

records = bbt.read("channel1", "resource1", limit = 5 /* read last 5 records */)

You can read data from a public channel by specifying the channel owner:

records = bbt.readPublic("owner", "channel1", "resource1", 5 /* read last 5 records */)

Writing Data

You can write data to a resource of one of your channels using:

bbt.write("channel1", "resource1", "Hello World")

If you have multiple records to write (to one or multiple resources of the same channel), you can use the bulk write method:

bbt.writeBulk("channel1", [
    {"resource": "resource1", "data": "Hello"},
    {"resource": "resource2", "data": "World"}
])

Publishing Data

You can publish data to a channel resource using:

bbt.publish("any_channel", "any_resource", "Hello Horld")

Published data is transient. It will not saved to any database; rather, it will be delivered to active subscribers in real time. The Publish operations do not require that the channel and resource be actually created. They will be considered as virtual: the channel and resource exist as lng as you are publishing data to them. By default, published data is public, publish a private message, you need to add private- prefix to the channel name like this:

bbt.publish("private-any_channel", "any_resource", "Hello World")

If you have multiple records to publish (to one or multiple resources of the same channel), you can use the bulk publish method:

bbt.publishBulk("channel1", [
    {"resource": "resource1", "data": "Hello"},
    {"resource": "resource2", "data": "World"}
])

Resource Object

The library provides a Resource Class that can be used as follows:

//Create the resource object
resource = Resource(bbt, "channel1", "resource1")

//Read data
records = resource.read(limit = 2 /* last 2 records */)

//Read the last written record
record = resource.recentVal()

//Write data
resource.write("Hello World")

//Publish data
resource.publish("Hola amigo")
