|MindSphere SDK V2 for Java||The MindSphere SDK Version 2 for Java enables Java developers to work with the MindSphere easily using service specific SDKs. The SDK is generated automatically using the MindSphere Service's specification yaml files to provide Java client implementation for the RESTful MindSphere APIs.|
|MindSphere SDK for Node.js||The MindSphere SDK for Node.js enables Node.js developers to work with the MindSphere easily using service specific SDKs. The SDKs are generated using the MindSphere Service API specifications to provide Node.js client implementations for the RESTful MindSphere Service APIs.|
|MindSphere SDK for Python||The MindSphere SDK for Python enables Python developers to work with MindSphere easily using service specific SDKs. The SDK is generated automatically using the MindSphere Service's specification yaml files to provide Python client implementation for the RESTful MindSphere APIs.|
|MindSphere Web Components||The MindSphere Web Components enables a Web developer to use out of the box components which can be integrated easily in a web application. There exist easy frontend component like DateTimeRange picker as also components which involve the MindSphere backend services like the Asset View component.|
|Open Edge Device Kit||Open Edge Device Kit is a stand-alone module for third-party device producers that can be installed on the device and acts as an interface to MindSphere.|
|Fleet Manager Plugin SDK ||The Fleet Manager Plugin SDK enabled MindSphere web developers to create plugins for MindSphere Fleet Manager. |
Use the Operations Insight Plugin SDK from now, which has been enhanced with further functionality and is fully compatible with this SDK.
MindSphere Open Source Tools and Libraries¶
MindSphere Open Source Tools and Libraries are contributions from the MindSphere community. These are demo applications, libraries and SDKs and useful connectivity tools which are maintained and released as open source software. The source code for all libraries is available on Github and the packages can be downloaded via common package management tools.
The full documentation can be found at opensource.mindsphere.io.
|MindConnect-NodeJS||This is a nodejs library which can be used as a starting point for custom agent implementation in node.js. The library comes with support for TimeSeries, Events and File Upload and it can create and update the DataSourceConfiguration and the Mappings in MindSphere. The most recent feature is support for automatic mappings to the asset instances.|
|MindSphere Command Line Interface||MindSphere GUIs are great but some tasks are still better done from the command line. The MindSphere CLI is a power tool for experienced MindSphere administrators as it gives you scriptable access to common tasks like agent onboarding and offboarding, asset management, historical time series upload, user management and it also offers valuable tooling for software developers. It is packaged as part of @mindconnect/mindconnect-nodejs library.|
|MindConnect Node-RED Node||A Node-RED node which can be used to upload the time series data, files and events to MindSphere. The node runs on x86, Raspberry PI, SIMATIC IOT 2040 and is also available as a docker container on dockerhub. There are also live flow examples with flows sending e.g. the OPC UA or MQTT Data to MindSphere at https://playground.mindconnect.rocks|
|MindSphere Development Proxy||The development proxy can be used to kickstart your MindSphere development. It provides an endpoint at your local machine which will authenticate all requests to the MindSphere APIs. The proxy is packaged as part of @mindconnect/mindconnect-nodejs library.|
|MindSphere Authentication Helper||This chrome extension can be used to simplify the development tasks for which you need to use the SESSION and XSRF-TOKEN to access MindSphere APIs. It provides an easy way to copy the MindSphere authentication cookies to the clipboard without having to go to chrome developer tools.|
|MindSphere Analytics Examples||Jupyter Lab Notebooks demonstrating the use of the MindSphere Analytics APIs (KPI Calculation, SignalValidation...)|
|MindSphere DevOps Demo||Demo application, providing tools and a devops admin backend for accessing Prometheus and Grafana.|
|MindSphere Start for Free Demo App||A small demo app which can be used as a starting point for your MindSphere StartForFree developer experience. The app uses React, MindSphere Design System and Mindsphere Web Components. See more on GitHub.|
|JSON Schema to MindSphere Demo App||Demo Application showing how to create MindSphere modelling artifacts (Variables, Aspect- and Asset-Types as well as assets) straight from a JSON schema. See more on GitHub and on Medium.|
|MindConnect Library V4 Demo Agent||Agent for MindSphere based on Mindconnect Library V4 and written in C. Compiled and tested on Raspberry Pi V4 with Raspbian Buster.See more on GitHub.|
|Visual Flow Creator Examples||Example flows for MindSphere Visual Flow Creator. The examples include the cloud to device communication and commanding via MQTT, creation of the custom API endpoints in the MindSphere and more. The full list of examples is available on GitHub.|
|Siemens Industrial Edge||Open source projects and samples for the open Industrial Edge computing platform from Siemens. The full list of examples is available on GitHub.|
|MindSphere Open Source Documentation||The open source documentation is available as an open source GitHub project|
