This section contains steps to add the IoT Cloud repository to your Intel® Edison board. The IoT Cloud repository allows you to add support for multiple cloud platforms, such as Microsoft Azure*, IBM Watson IoT*, or Amazon* Web Services with the Intel® Edison board.
Installing the IoT Cloud repository
- Access your Intel® Edison board’s console either through serial using your preferred serial client or SSH.
- Add the IoT Cloud repository using the commands below:
echo "src iot-cloud http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/iot-cloud/iotdk/3.5" > /etc/opkg/iot-cloud.conf
- Install packages for cloud platforms, enter the following commands:
opkg update opkg install packagegroup-cloud-azure opkg install packagegroup-cloud-ibm opkg install packagegroup-cloud-aws
This will automatically install Node-RED, which will be available on port 1880.
Node-RED* nodes don’t show after installing support for a cloud platform
The Node-RED service needs to be restarted to pick up new nodes. Run the following command to restart the Node-RED service:
systemctl restart node-red
Installing sensor support for Node-RED*
There is a package available in the cloud repository which installs nodes for a limited number of sensors.
To install this package, run the following commands on your Intel® Edison board:
opkg update opkg install node-red-contrib-upm systemctl restart node-red
