A RESTful HTTP server daemon for the blink(1) LED USB device. Written in Modern C++.
"Wow! It totally sucks less than those other blink(1) servers!" - Someone (probably)
I was unimpressed with the flexibility of the official blink(1) servers in the official GitHub repository. I wanted my server to have the same flexibility as the command-line blink1-tool. While this project uses boost::asio instead of c++11 threads the http lib I was using (Pistache) relied on the linux epoll() syscall making it less portable.
If you are on Linux or OpenBSD (AMD64), simply download the binary release and start her up! I would like to support an ARM build for Raspberry Pi's as well soon. If you wish to compile for your specific platform, clone this repo and follow along with the directions below.
While I only plan on supporting Linux and OpenBSD this project should work on other platforms as well.
If you want to take the easy route, you can run the included setup script:
# still need to write ^_^ cd ./blink1d/scripts # Needs root priv to install packages sudo ./install-prereqs.sh
Install prerequisites manually:
sudo apt-get install build-essential libboost-all-dev libtcmalloc-minimal4 && sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtcmalloc_minimal.so.4 /usr/lib/libtcmalloc_minimal.so
yum install boost-devel
cd ./blink1d make # start the server ./blink1d -v __ ___ __ ___ __ / / / (_)__ / /__< /__/ / / _ \/ / / _ \/ '_// / _ / /_.__/_/_/_//_/_/\_\/_/\_,_/ project licensed under the 3-clause BSD license site: git.zerohack.xyz/lotus/blink1d cores detected: 4 threading enabled: true using: 4 thread(s) running on port: 9080 fade value set to: 1000ms (2018-12-21 22:28:17) [INFO ] Crow/0.1 server is running at 0.0.0.0:9080 using 4 threads (2018-12-21 22:28:17) [INFO ] Call `app.loglevel(crow::LogLevel::Warning)` to hide Info level logs.
You should now be able to curl the server on default port 9080
curl localhost:9080/on curl localhost:9080/off
curl localhost:9080/basic/red curl localhost:9080/basic/green curl localhost:9080/basic/blue curl localhost:9080/basic/white curl localhost:9080/basic/yellow curl localhost:9080/basic/orange curl localhost:9080/basic/pink curl localhost:9080/basic/purple curl localhost:9080/basic/cyan curl localhost:9080/basic/magenta
# turn white curl localhost:9080/custom/rgb/255/255/255 # turn off curl localhost:9080/custom/rgb/0/0/0 # Use Hex Colors # (white) curl localhost:9080/custom/hex/FFFFFF # (off) curl localhost:9080/custom/hex/000000 # Use CMYK Colors (Cyan / Magenta / Yellow / Key) # (white) curl localhost:9080/custom/cmyk/255/255/255/255 # (off) curl localhost:9080/custom/cmyk/0/0/0/0 # (green) curl localhost:9080/custom/cmyk/76/0/76/20
Adding Pulsing / Blinking / Sequences:
# NOT YET IMPLEMENTED # Blink # (first set a color) curl localhost:9080/on # (now tell it to blink with an interval of 500ms) curl localhost:9080/blink/500 # "Pulse" (Fade) # (same as blink) curl localhost:9080/pulse/500 # Rainbow # (transitions through all of the rainbow colors) curl localhost:9080/rainbow
-v --verbose (Print debugging output to console)
-p --port (specify a network port to run on [default 9080])
-t --thread (detects number of cores and threads appropriately)
-f --fade (default = 1000 ms)
