  1. < device > Build your first App for the Internet

    of Things with AngularJS [It takes less than 15 minutes using the new, shining device tag] 1 / 36
  2. Internet of Things The Internet of Things is when milk

    carton tells you it's running out of milk and it's time to buy milk... and much more :) 2 / 36
  3. You can connect everything [Adding new functionalities means adding new

    value to final customers] 3 / 36
  4. :) Lelylan (: An open and complete set of REST

    API that make is simple to control and monitor in realtime any physical object, wherever you are. 4 / 36
  5. IoT & Developers Problem. We need a fast solution to

    create apps for the IoT! 5 / 36
  6. < device > A new HTML tag build on top

    of AngularJS and Lelylan that make it simple and fast to create a complete application for the Internet of Things. 6 / 36
  7. What we promise A working User Interface looking like this

    one 7 / 36
  8. Why? 8 / 36

  9. 1/ It's fast It takes 15 min to have an

    App working on your mobile 9 / 36
  10. 2/ Mobile first Works across desktop, tablet and mobile, including

    iPhones, iPads and Android devices. Most probably also with your Win Phone ;) 10 / 36
  11. 3/ Any type The device directive gives you a ready

    to use template to control any physical device in the real world. From simple devices like a light or a lock to more complex devices like a thermostat or a washing machine. [It's up to your imagination and it just WORKS!] 11 / 36
  12. 4/ Customizable The device directive comes to life with customization

    in mind. It offers you a default template, but when it doesn't fit your needs, you can create a new one in minutes by changing few lines of CSS and HTML. [No need to know AngularJS for any web designer] 12 / 36
  13. 13 / 36

  14. How does it work, then? 14 / 36

  15. 15 minutes coding It's your first time with Angular.js? Do

    you use Ember and hate Angular.JS? No worry, it'll still take 15 minutes (maximum) to control a virtual device. 15 / 36
  16. Steps - Create Device If you never used Lelylan before

    you need to create your first device using Lelylan Dashboard or Lelylan API. 16 / 36
  17. Steps - Create Device - Setup To build our app

    we'll use Yeoman, a collection of tools and frameworks helping developers to quickly build web applications. $ n p m i n s t a l l - g y o With Yeoman you can install additional generators with npm. For this tutorial you need to install the AngularJS generator. $ n p m i n s t a l l - g g e n e r a t o r - a n g u l a r 17 / 36
  18. Steps - Create Device - Setup - Create App To

    begin, go to the terminal, make a new directory and cd into it. $ m k d i r n e w - p r o j e c t & & c d $ _ You can now kick-start your AngularJS app. $ y o a n g u l a r It will also ask you if you would like to include Twitter Bootstrap and other stuff. Once you've decided, just hit Enter. It will take a while to complete. To preview what the app looks like run the serve command. $ g r u n t s e r v e The server supports LiveReload, meaning you can fire up a text editor, edit a custom element and the browser will reload on save. 18 / 36
  19. Steps - Create Device - Setup - Create App -

    Directive Install the device directive using Bower $ b o w e r i n s t a l l d e v i c e - d i r e c t i v e - n g - - s a v e Now you have directive and all its dependencies ready to be used. Restart the server to automatically add the needed javascript files to your index page. $ g r u n t s e r v e You can now add the directive injecting the device directive into your AngularJS app.js. / / a p p / s c r i p t s / a p p . j s a n g u l a r . m o d u l e ( ' a p p ' , [ ' l e l y l a n . d i r e c t i v e s . d e v i c e ' , . . . ] ) 19 / 36
  20. Steps - Create Device - Setup - Create App -

    Directive - OAuth 2.0 Lelylan uses an OAuth 2.0 server for authentication and authorization. Register a new application setting a name (e.g Demo) and the Redirect URI (e.g. http://localhost:9000). To get an authorization token you need to use oauth-ng, an AngularJS directive for OAuth 2.0 (already installed as dependency). < ! - - a p p / i n d e x . h t m l - - > < o a u t h s i t e = " h t t p : / / p e o p l e . l e l y l a n . c o m " c l i e n t - i d = " C L I E N T _ I D " r e d i r e c t - u r i = " R E D I R E C T _ U R I " p r o f i l e - u r i = " h t t p : / / a p i . l e l y l a n . c o m / m e " s c o p e = " d e v i c e s " > < / o a u t h > The oauth directive works just straight when the HTML5 mode is active. Inject the $locationProvider into a new AngularJS config block and set the HTML5 mode. / / a p p / s c r i p t s / a p p . j s . c o n f i g ( f u n c t i o n ( $ l o c a t i o n P r o v i d e r ) { $ l o c a t i o n P r o v i d e r . h t m l 5 M o d e ( t r u e ) . h a s h P r e f i x ( ' ! ' ) ; } ) ; P.S. Base tag and little style here could help. 20 / 36
  21. Steps - Create Device - Setup - Create App -

    Directive - OAuth 2.0 - Get Devices To get all your devices you can use the Lelylan client for AngularJS (already installed as dependency). Open the controller main.js, inject the Device service and place the Device#all method. / / a p p / s c r i p t s / c o n t r o l l e r s / m a i n . j s a n g u l a r . m o d u l e ( ' n e w P r o j e c t A p p ' ) . c o n t r o l l e r ( ' M a i n C t r l ' , f u n c t i o n ( $ s c o p e , $ t i m e o u t , D e v i c e ) { $ t i m e o u t ( f u n c t i o n ( ) { D e v i c e . a l l ( ) . s u c c e s s ( f u n c t i o n ( d a t a ) { $ s c o p e . d e v i c e s = d a t a ; } ) . e r r o r ( f u n c t i o n ( ) { $ s c o p e . e r r o r = ' U n a u t h o r i z e d . ' ; } ) ; } ) ; / / d i g e s t f o r t h e a c c e s s t o k e n t o b e l o a d e d } ) ; This is what happens. You inject the Device service and call the Device.all() method to get all of your devices and save them in $scope.devices. 21 / 36
  22. Steps - Create Device - Setup - Create App -

    Directive - OAuth 2.0 - Get Devices - Show Devices Supposing you have created at least one device with Lelylan you are ready to show them. Open the main.html view and list your devices by using the device directive. / / a p p / v i e w s / m a i n . h t m l < h 3 n g - i f = " e r r o r " > { { e r r o r } } < / h 3 > < d i v n g - r e p e a t = " d e v i c e i n d e v i c e s " > < d e v i c e d e v i c e - j s o n = " { { d e v i c e } } " > < / d e v i c e > < d i v > This is what happens. You iterate between all devices and show them using the device directive. To let the directive know which device it has to render you use the attribute device-json that accepts any valid device representation. 22 / 36
  23. You are done! [Really?] 23 / 36

  24. Yes :) [But we can do better than circles] 24

  25. Custom templates! 25 / 36

  26. I want a switch template 26 / 36

  27. Steps - Configuration To set a new template you need

    to tell to the device directive where the HTML file is located. 1. Template attribute. Set the template path (or uri) to the device-template attribute. < d e v i c e d e v i c e - t e m p l a t e = " T E M P L A T E _ P A T H " . . . > < / d e v i c e > 2. Template event. Fires the update template event passing an object with the template uri and the optional device id (when not set all devices are affected by the change). $ r o o t S c o p e . $ b r o a d c a s t ( ' l e l y l a n : d i r e c t i v e s : d e v i c e : t e m p l a t e ' , { t e m p l a t e : ' T E M P L A T E _ P A T H ' , i d : ' D E V I C E _ I D ' } ) ; There are several templates ready to be used. In this case we'll use the switch template which make it simple to turn on and off our light. 27 / 36
  28. Steps - Configuration - Template The template is pretty simple.

    You have a checkbox label that when clicked executes the default function. This means that when the light is on the switch turns it off and when the light is off the switch turns it on. < ! - - s w i t c h e l e m e n t - - > < i n p u t t y p e = " c h e c k b o x " i d = " l y - c h e c k b o x " / > < l a b e l c l a s s = " l y - s l i d e r " f o r = " l y - c h e c k b o x " n g - c l i c k = " e x e c u t e ( s t a t u s . f u n c t i o n ) " > < / l a b e l > < ! - - s p i n n e r e l e m e n t - - > < d i v c l a s s = " l y - s p i n n e r l y - a n i m a t i o n " n g - i f = " d e v i c e . p e n d i n g " > < d i v c l a s s = " l y - b o u n c e - 1 " > < / d i v > < d i v c l a s s = " l y - b o u n c e - 2 " > < / d i v > < d i v c l a s s = " l y - b o u n c e - 3 " > < / d i v > < / d i v > You also have the spinner which is visible only when the device is pending, meaning that the request is sent to the physical device and you are waiting for its execution to be completed. 28 / 36
  29. Steps - Configuration - How it works - Get Template

    Lets see in device directive custom templates. Save them in a p p / v i e w s / t e m p l a t e s as s w i t c h . h t m l and s w i t c h . c s s and then tell to the device directive to load the new template. < ! - - a p p / v i e w s / m a i n . h t m l - - > < h 3 n g - i f = " e r r o r " > { { e r r o r } } < / h 3 > < d i v n g - r e p e a t = " d e v i c e i n d e v i c e s " > < d e v i c e d e v i c e - t e m p l a t e = " v i e w s / t e m p l a t e s / s w i t c h . h t m l " > d e v i c e - j s o n = " { { d e v i c e } } " > < / d e v i c e > < d i v > 29 / 36
  30. You are done! [This was a basic example. Of course,

    you can create more complex UI/UX] 30 / 36
  31. Anything else? [Just few slides more, to get little more

    power] 31 / 36
  32. Internal API Use the device directive API to apply specific

    functionalities when interacting with different parts of your template (e.g. execute a function, get the JSON device, delete the device). 32 / 36
  33. Events The directive fires different type of events (e.g. device

    loaded, device updated, device deleted), useful when interacting with other sections of your App. 33 / 36
  34. That's all folks! Do we have 15 more minutes? Let's

    connect and control a real light using an Arduino Yun, a Raspberry Pi, an Electric Imp or any other hardware you love. 34 / 36
