Ver 4.0 API's

Post by bbrally »

Is it possible to get a list of the new Ver 4.0 API's?

I'm writing an android app and don't want to spend much more time on it if the API's are about to change for version 4.

Also can you tell me if there will be minor, significant, or any changes to the interface file structures.

When you ask about interface file structures, are you talking about the process and system config files? EVERYTHING has changed with 4.0. The config files are JSON formatted data files now as is all of the API. There is already a complete API published, but there have been revisions to it since it was created, so let me check with Brent to see if we can get an updated version of it and get it posted.

Yes to the process files. I don't need the system config files but am using ultemp, ulfloat, ulsysio, and ucsysio.

I'll need to work on getting an updated version together, but the docs at: http://www.embeddedcc.com/api-docs/ are pretty accurate and will give you an idea of where we're going in 4.0.

I spent some time this morning looking at the API's and how I'll incorporate them into my app. These will simplify things significantly from version 3.x.

I don't know how easy it is to add/modify API's at this point, but is it possible to have an API to read the probe resistance values?

This has been brought up before and would be a worthwhile addition. Using off-board apps to read the resistance could enable uses for the ports other than temp probes.
