Azure Device Update for IoT Hub client library samples for TypeScript

These sample programs show how to use the TypeScript client libraries for Azure Device Update for IoT Hub in some common scenarios.

File Name Description
updates.ts Shows how to use some list operations for Device Update for IoT Hub

Prerequisites

The samples are compatible with Node.js >= 8.0.0.

Before running the samples in Node, they must be compiled to JavaScript using the TypeScript compiler. For more information on TypeScript, see the TypeScript documentation. Install the TypeScript compiler using

npm install -g typescript

You need an Azure subscription to run these sample programs. Samples retrieve credentials to access the Device Update for IoT Hub endpoint from environment variables. Alternatively, edit the source code to include the appropriate credentials. See each individual sample for details on which environment variables/credentials it requires to function.

Adapting the samples to run in the browser may require some additional consideration. For details, please see the package README.

Setup

To run the samples using the published version of the package:

  1. Install the dependencies using npm:
npm install
  1. Compile the samples
npm run build
  1. Edit the file sample.env, adding the correct credentials to access the Azure service and run the samples. Then rename the file from sample.env to just .env. The sample programs will read this file automatically.

  2. Run whichever samples you like (note that some samples may require additional setup, see the table above):

node dist/updates.js
