Google Cloud Internet of Things (IoT) Core: Node.js Client

release level npm version codecov

Node.js idiomatic client for Cloud IoT Core.

Google Cloud Internet of Things (IoT) Core is a fully managed service for securely connecting and managing IoT devices, from a few to millions. Ingest data from connected devices and build rich applications that integrate with the other big data services of Google Cloud Platform.

A comprehensive list of changes in each version may be found in the CHANGELOG.

Quickstart

Before you begin

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the Google Cloud Internet of Things (IoT) Core API.
  4. Set up authentication with a service account so you can access the API from your local workstation.

Installing the client library

npm install @google-cloud/iot

Using the client library

const iot = require('@google-cloud/iot');
const client = new iot.v1.DeviceManagerClient();

async function quickstart() {
  const projectId = await client.getProjectId();
  const parent = client.locationPath(projectId, 'us-central1');
  const [resources] = await client.listDeviceRegistries({parent});
  console.log(`${resources.length} resource(s) found.`);
  for (const resource of resources) {
    console.log(resource);
  }
}
quickstart();

Supported Node.js Versions

Our client libraries follow the Node.js release schedule. Libraries are compatible with all current active and maintenance versions of Node.js.

Client libraries targeting some end-of-life versions of Node.js are available, and can be installed via npm dist-tags. The dist-tags follow the naming convention legacy-(version).

Legacy Node.js versions are supported as a best effort:

  • Legacy versions will not be tested in continuous integration.
  • Some security patches may not be able to be backported.
  • Dependencies will not be kept up-to-date, and features will not be backported.

Legacy tags available

  • legacy-8: install client libraries from this dist-tag for versions compatible with Node.js 8.

Versioning

This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be General Availability (GA). This means it is stable; the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
