Full Description

barnowl-relay

A remote server relay for barnowl

barnowl-relay is a simple command-line tool that relays data from radio-sensors to a remote server. A typical use case is to connect a reelyActive starter kit to the cloud via your PC or a Raspberry Pi.

Technically, barnowl-relay is simply an augmented barnowl instance, configured to relay its real-time stream of events to a remote server, typically a barnacles instance.

Installation

Windows and Mac

npm install -g barnowl-relay

Linux

sudo npm install -g barnowl-relay

Docker

docker pull reelyactive/barnowl-relay

Usage with USB Hub

For use with a minimal starter kit connected to the computer.

barnowl-relay -s

Relay to www.hyperlocalcontext.com

barnowl-relay -s -h www.hyperlocalcontext.com

Usage with IP Hub

For use with a BLE starter kit or equivalent which is sending UDP packets to the computer.

barnowl-relay -um

Relay to www.hyperlocalcontext.com

Advanced Parameters

Verbose output

By default, barnowl-relay will only log errors to the console. To log all relayed messages, run as follows:

barnowl-relay -v

Relay to a specific host

By default, barnowl-relay will POST to pareto.reelyactive.com. To instead use mybarnacles.io, for instance, run as follows:

barnowl-relay -h mybarnacles.io

By default, barnowl-relay will POST to port 80. To instead use port 8080, for instance, run as follows:

barnowl-relay -p 8080

Relay via a specific proxy server

By default, barnowl-relay will POST directly to the target host. To instead use a proxy server, for instance, run as follows:

barnowl-relay -x http://my.proxy.name
