Azure IoT Edge Dev Tool
IOTEDGEDEV DOES NOT WORK WITH IOT EDGE GA BITS.
PLEASE WATCH THIS REPO FOR NOTIFICATIONS
The Azure IoT Edge Dev Tool greatly simplifies Azure IoT Edge development down to simple commands driven by Environment Variables.
- It gets you started with IoT Edge development with the IoT Edge Dev Container and IoT Edge Solution Scaffolding that contains a sample module and all the required configuration files.
- It speeds up your inner-loop dev (dev, debug, test) by reducing multi-step build & deploy processes into one-line CLI commands and well as drive your outer-loop CI/CD pipeline. You can use all the same commands in both stages of your development life-cycle.
For the absolute fastest way to get started with IoT Edge Dev, please see the Quickstart section below.
For a more detailed overview of IoT Edge Dev Tool including setup and commands, please see the Wiki.
This quickstart will run a container, create a solution, setup Azure resources, build and deploy modules to your device, setup and start the Edge Runtime and then monitor messages flowing into IoT Hub.
Here's a 3 minute video walk-through of this Quickstart:
The only thing you need to install is Docker. All of the other dev dependencies are included in the container.
- Open Docker Settings and setup a Shared Drive that you'll use to store your IoT Edge Solution files.
Run the Azure IoT Edge Dev Container
Before you run the container, you will need to create a local folder to store your IoT Edge solution files.
mkdir c:\temp\iotedge docker run -ti -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v c:/temp/iotedge:/home/iotedge microsoft/iotedgedev
sudo mkdir /home/iotedge docker run -ti -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /home/iotedge:/home/iotedge microsoft/iotedgedev
Initialize Edge Solution and Setup Azure Resources
'iotedgedev init' will run both 'iotedgedev solution .' and 'iotedgedev azure', which will create a solution and setup your Azure resource in a single comamnd.
Build & Push IoT Edge Modules
You can also combine build, push and deploy with
iotedgedev push --deploy
Deploy Modules to IoT Edge Device
Start the IoT Edge Runtime
Monitor Messages sent from IoT Edge to IoT Hub
