Client for the ondevice.io service
This is the official ondevice.io client.
ondevice allows you to connect to all your devices from pretty much anywhere.
You can install the client via python’s pip command:
sudo pip3 install ondevice
Important: At the time of this writing ondevice connect doesn’t fully work in python2, so make sure you install ondevice in python3 (e.g. using the pip3 command (or similar).
Also make sure to install it as root.
After that you should be able to use it (note that you need an account on https://ondevice.io/ though).
$ ondevice help USAGE: ondevice <command> [args] - Device commands: daemon Run the ondevice daemon service [add/rm] [args...] Manages services - Client commands: connect <module> <dev> [svcName] Connects to a service on the specified device (shorthand: `:<module>`) dev <devName> props/set/rm [args] Fetch/Manage a device's information list Displays detailed information on your devices - Other commands: help [cmd] lists available commands or prints detailed help for one module Lists installed modules setup Set up the API keys for communicating with the ondevice.io service
After you’ve set up your ondevice.io account, you have to set up your API keys:
$ ondevice setup User: ondevUser API key: ********** INFO:root:Updated client key (user: 'ondevUser')
After that you’re good to go
Running the device daemon
simply run ondevice daemon

Connect to a device
$ ondevice ssh manuel@ondevUser.abcdefghi manuel@ondevice:ondevUser.abcdefghi's password: Linux raspberrypi 3.10.33+ #654 PREEMPT Fri Mar 7 16:32:08 GMT 2014 armv6l The programs included with the Debian GNU/Linux system are free software; the exact distribution terms for each program are described in the individual files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright.

For automation purposes, you can set custom properties for your devices.
$ ondevice device abcdefghi set foo=bar abc=123 abc=123 foo=bar $ ondevice device abcdefghi rm abc foo=bar $ ondevice device abcdefghi props foo=bar $ ondevice device abcdefghi set hello=world hello=world foo=bar
Each invocation returns the resulting property list; You can query the list using ondevice device <devId> props
There’s currently one special property:
- :title: set the device’s description (will be shown online and in ondevice list)
- python (with pip; the full functionality is currently only available on Python 3, but the device side should work on python2 as well)
- see requirements.txt for the actual list of python modules
