A lot of the Mongose OS functionality is driven by the device configuration. For example, in order to make a device connected to the MQTT server, there is no need to write a single line of code. It is enough to modify mqtt.* configuration settings.

A configuration infrastructure is described in the user guide. Below is the programmatic API for the device configuration.


save_cfg

bool save_cfg(const struct mgos_config *cfg, char **msg);

Save config. Performs diff against defaults and only saves diffs. Reboot is required to reload the config. If return value is false, a message may be provided in *msg. If non-NULL, it must be free()d. It is safe to pass a NULL msg

load_config_defaults

bool load_config_defaults(struct mgos_config *cfg);

Reset all config values to defaults.

mgos_config_reset

void mgos_config_reset(int level);

Reset config down to and including |level|. 0 - defaults, 1-8 - vendor levels, 9 - user. mgos_config_reset(MGOS_CONFIG_LEVEL_USER) will wipe user settings.

(*mgos_config_validator_fn)

typedef bool (*mgos_config_validator_fn)(const struct mgos_config *cfg,
                                         char **msg);
void mgos_register_config_validator(mgos_config_validator_fn fn);

Register a config validator. Validators will be invoked before saving config and if any of them returns false, config will not be saved. An error message may be *msg may be set to error message. Note: if non-NULL, *msg will be freed. Remember to use strdup and asprintf.

mgos_expand_mac_address_placeholders

void mgos_expand_mac_address_placeholders(char *str);

Expands question marks in "str" with digits from the MAC address.

mgos_config_apply

bool mgos_config_apply(const char *sys_config_subset_json, bool save);

Apply a subset of system configuration. Return true on success.

mgos_config_apply_s

bool mgos_config_apply_s(const struct mg_str, bool save);

Same as mgos_config_apply but uses mg_str

mgos_sys_config_parse_sub

bool mgos_sys_config_parse_sub(const struct mg_str json, const char *section,
                               void *cfg);

Parse a subsection of sys config, e.g. just "spi". cfg must point to the subsection's struct. Example:

  struct mgos_config_spi cfg;
  const struct mg_str json_cfg = MG_MK_STR("{\"unit_no\": 1}");
  memset(&cfg, 0, sizeof(cfg));
  mgos_sys_config_parse_sub(json_cfg, "spi", cfg);

JS API


Cfg.get

Cfg.get(path)

Get the config value by the configuration variable. Currently, only simple types are returned: strings, ints, booleans, doubles. Objects are not yet supported.

Examples:

load('api_config.js');
Cfg.get('device.id');        // returns a string
Cfg.get('debug.level');      // returns an integer
Cfg.get('wifi.sta.enable');  // returns a boolean

Cfg.set

Cfg.set(obj, opt_save)

Set the configuration. obj must be a subset of the whole configuation tree. save is boolean flag that indicating whether the change should be saved - it could be omitted, in which case it defaults to true. Examples:

load('api_config.js');
Cfg.set({wifi: {ap: {enable: false}}});  // Disable WiFi AP mode
Cfg.set({debug: {level: 3}});            // Set debug level to 3
