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.

  • Featured: MindSphere CLI

    The MindSphere CLI is a powerful tool for MindSphere developers and administrators as it gives you scriptable access to common tasks in MindSphere.

    It is packaged as part of @mindconnect/mindconnect-nodejs library.
    You can install it from npm or download binaries from the links below.
    npm install -g @mindconnect/mindconnect-nodejs
  • 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 TypeScript SDK

    TypeScript/JavaScript Community SDK for MindSphere APIs. It implements support for both browser (e.g. angular, react...) and backend development in node.js and it supports all different MindSphere authentication types (Cookies, UserCredentials, AppCredentials, ServiceCredentials, MindSphere Agents). It is packaged as part of @mindconnect/mindconnect-nodejs library.

    GitHub npm

  • 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

    GitHub npm dockerhub

  • 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.

    GitHub npm

  • 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.
