Configuration module

As a robotic developer, you need to represent, store, and review parameters. Additionally, you might want to access parameters in your source code, modify a subset of parameters for a particular robot, or add new parameters and apply those to a group of robots.

The rapyuta.io platform provides a mechanism that allows a developer to set, review, update and override configuration for any connected robot. Configuration parameters in the rapyuta.io platform are represented by a tree-like hierarchical structure called configuration hierarchy.

Client Module

class Client(auth_token, project=None)

Client class provides access to device, package, volume and deployment classes.

__init__(auth_token, project=None)

Get new client object

Parameters
  • auth_token (string) – Authentication token

  • project (string) – project_guid of the user

apply_parameters(device_list, tree_names=None, retry_limit=0)

Applies configuration parameters for the given device_list. If tree_names is given, only these trees are applied.

Parameters
  • device_list (list[str]) – List of device IDs

  • tree_names (list[str]) – List of configuration tree names

  • retry_limit (int) – Optional parameter to specify the number of retry attempts to be carried out if any failures occurs during the API call.

Returns

List of dictionaries - each with device_id, bool success status, and an error message if the success status is False for that device_id

Return type

list[dict]

Following example demonstrates how to use apply_parameters and handle errors.

>>> from rapyuta_io import Client
>>> client = Client(auth_token='auth_token', project='project_guid')
>>> devices = client.get_all_devices()
>>> response = client.apply_parameters([device.deviceId for device in devices])
>>> for device in response:
...     if not device['success']:
...         print device['device_id'], device['error']
download_configurations(rootdir, tree_names=None, delete_existing_trees=False)

Download all configurations to rootdir following the same directory structure. If rootdir does not exist, it is created.

Parameters
  • rootdir (str) – Path to directory to store downloaded configurations

  • tree_names (list[str], optional) – List of specific configuration trees to download. If None, all trees are downloaded

  • delete_existing_trees (bool, optional) – For each tree to download, delete existing tree on the filesystem. Defaults to False

Following example demonstrates how to use download_configurations and handle errors.

>>> from rapyuta_io import Client
>>> from rapyuta_io.utils.error import APIError, InternalServerError
>>> client = Client(auth_token='auth_token', project='project_guid')
>>> try:
...     client.download_configurations('path/to/destination_dir',
...                                    tree_names=['config_tree1', 'config_tree2'],
...                                    delete_existing_trees=True)
... except (APIError, InternalServerError) as e:
...     print 'failed API request', e.tree_path, e
... except (IOError, OSError) as e:
...     print 'failed file/directory creation', e
upload_configurations(rootdir, tree_names=None, delete_existing_trees=False)

Traverses rootdir and uploads configurations following the same directory structure.

Parameters
  • rootdir (str) – Path to directory containing configurations

  • tree_names (list[str], optional) – List of specific configuration trees to upload. If None, all trees under rootdir are uploaded

  • delete_existing_trees (bool, optional) – For each tree to upload, delete existing tree at the server. Defaults to False

Following example demonstrates how to use upload_configurations and handle errors.

>>> from rapyuta_io import Client
>>> from rapyuta_io.utils.error import BadRequestError, InternalServerError
>>> client = Client(auth_token='auth_token', project='project_guid')
>>> try:
...     client.upload_configurations('path/to/configs/source_dir',
...                                  tree_names=['config_tree1', 'config_tree2'],
...                                  delete_existing_trees=True)
... except (BadRequestError, InternalServerError) as e:
...     print 'failed API request', e.tree_path, e
... except (IOError, OSError) as e:
...     print 'failed file/directory read', e
