MoBagel SDK for C
Full Description

MoBagel C++ SDK


To install mobagel-cpp-sdk, you need the following tools/libraries in your environment :

  • cmake - Build mobagel-cpp-sdk library.
  • libcurl - perform HTTP/HTTPS.


$ git clone
$ cd mobagel-c-sdk
$ sudo ./

Getting Started

- Creating an account

If you do not have an account, please create an account here. After you create an account, you will be directed to the dashboard.

- Creating a new product

To use MoBagel, you first have to create a product, which is essentially a group of same device. You will be prompted to create a new product when you first enter the dashboard.

After you create a product, you can go to Configuration -> Device Info to retrieve your product_key, which will be used to create device later on.

- Adding custom properties

In the Configuration, you can add custom properties to your product. Custom properties should have the following requirements:

  • ID: Property ID (with the exception of state) should always begin with c_ to indicate that it is a custom property. In addition, property IDs are unique and cannot repeat with itself.

  • Name: The property name is your nickname for your property. For example, if your ID is 'c_012421', you can set the name as 'temperature'. The modules in the dashboard will display your property name instead of your property ID.

  • Type: There are two types of properties: category and numeric. Category uses a set of string options and numeric uses numeric options (optional).

  • Options:

    • Category: please add all the possible string values of your property by typing in the options column. The server will use this to prevent your devices from sending erroraneous reports.

    • Numeric (optional): please set a min and max value for your numeric property to help protect your data from errors. For example, if your numeric property is humidity level, then you can set min and max to 0 and 100, respectively. This will allow our system to reject any reports with humidity levels that are not in this range because those values are theoretically impossible (i.e. negative humidity level).

Please note that you must configure your properties in your configuration before you send your first customized report.

- Register your first device

Once you generated a product_key from the dashboard, you can use the product_key and registerDevice function to register a device in your application.

// register a device
string device_key = mobagel->registerDevice();

- Connecting custom properties or events

In your device application, you will need to prepare your report before sending it to MoBagel.

  • Determining different states of your devices to send along with your report
# Example states

"state": "normal"
"state": "error"
  • Adding custom properties or events with a key beginning with c_
# Example custom properties or events

"c_temperature": 30
"c_event": "turned_on"
  • Deciding when to send reports (time, frequency, events)

- Sending first report

Once you connect the sensor properties, you can generate a report with the sendReport function.

// send report from client
MoBagelReport report;
report.custom("temperature", 123);
report.custom("pressure", 123.12);
report.custom("label", "test");
client->sendReport(report, report_callback);


Run the sample code just built for you.

$ ./build/examples/main

If you see the following response, congratulations!
