ctrlX developR – Episode #8 Rest interface & automated configuration
Basic requirements for an open and future-proof platform are standardized and state-of-the-art interfaces. REST stands for Representational State Transfer. Using the REST interface enables us to dock web based apps to the ctrlX CORE very easily. And this was essential for the architecture of ctrlX AUTOMATION since we have already chosen a lot of web-based services.
In episode 8 of ctrlX developR Johannes demonstrates how to configure machine controls faster and more efficiently, how REST works together with the ctrlX Data Layer and how to create whole dashboards using Node-RED.
