Overview

This library adds several HTTP endpoints that allow to POST new firmware to the device over HTTP:

  • /update - accept new firmware uploads via HTTP POST.
  • /update/revert - roll back to the previous firmware.
  • /update/commit - commit new firmware.

Example using curl tool (use Mac/Linux terminal or Windows command prompt). Assume you have build a new firmware for your app. The zip file with a built firmware is located at build/fw.zip. In order to update a live device with IP address IP_ADDRESS, do:

$ curl -i -F filedata=@./build/fw.zip  http://IP_ADDRESS/update
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
