Software Updates

the most commonly updated application is the userapplication on the modules. This is part of the firmware.

A userapplication implement the Userhooks (see here) functions. It may call any of the functions exposed through the userapi (see here)

Our cloud will install userapplications on a module and keep it updated to the latest version.

On the module details site a git repository may be selected for each module. The cloud will build each pushed commit in that git repository. Each new build will be installed on the modules, which are configured for that repository.

A repository can be easily created by ‘forking’ one of the existing ones. It can also be created from scratch of course. (Use the “Add” button on the same page)

You may choose to make your repository public as well - which we encourage.
