This page describes the current status of the Mihini agent REST service. The Mihini agent REST exposes agent services by a REST API.


Returned values

Each REST function returns the same value as the function to which it corresponds, except that it is serialized with JSON


See below a list of the current Lua API with their corresponding REST API


Module API REST URL HTTP method HTTP payload
devicetree.get("node.subnode.leaf") devicetree/node/subnode/leaf GET Nothing
devicetree.set("node.subnode.leaf", "myvalue") devicetree/node/subnode/leaf PUT The new value of "node.subnode.leaf" serialiazed with JSON

Application container

appcon.start("id") application/id/start PUT Empty JSON table ({ }) or empty JSON string ""
appcon.stop("id") application/id/stop PUT

Empty JSON table ({ }) or empty JSON string ""

appcon.configure("id", autostart) application/id/configure PUT A boolean value corresponding to "autostart" and serialized with JSON
