Testing Scales API

If you would like to test the Scales API but don't have a set of scales then you can generate simulated scale data as follows:

Start generating some scale data
curl -X PUT -u yourapikeyhere:

This command makes the server simulate a single measurement from a scale connected to computer 0 with device name PrintNode Test Scale and device number 0. Like a real measurement, it will be available in the API for 45 seconds and it will be published to subscribed websockets.

Read the scale data

You can access the scale data through the API.

Here is an example of an API call:

curl -u yourapikeyhere:

For more examples on how to use our HTTP API to access the scale readouts, go to our API reference.
