Description

This library enables an Arduino board equipped with a network connection (Ethernet Shield, WiFi Shield, Yun, etc.) to send and receive data to and from the cloud by using Exosite's Cloud Data Platform.

The Exosite Arduino Library is tested on Arduino UNO and Duemillanove with Arduino Ethernet Shield and Arduino WiFi Shield with Arduino v1.0.5.

Methods

Constructor

  int boolean Exosite(String _cik, Client *_client);

Initialize the Exosite object.

_cik

The CIKof the device generated by the Exosite Platform.

_client

The Client object of your network interface.

writeRead

  int boolean Exosite::writeRead(char* writeString, char* readString, char** returnString)
  int boolean Exosite::writeRead(String writeString, String readString, String &returnString)

Read and write data in one step with the Exosite Cloud Platform.

writeString

This sets the values to write to certain datasources. eg. "alias3=value3&alias4=value4"

readString

This selects which datasources to read by their alias. eg. "alias1&alias2"

returnString

This is the string returned with the values requested in readString. eg. "alias1=value1&alias2=value2"

Examples

EthernetReadWriteString

This example writes the millis() timer to the "uptime" data source and reads both "uptime" and "command" and displays the result. See the Quick Start for more information.
