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:
curl -X PUT -u yourapikeyhere: https://api.printnode.com/scale
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.
You can access the scale data through the API.
Here is an example of an API call:
curl -u yourapikeyhere: https://api.printnode.com/scales
For more examples on how to use our HTTP API to access the scale readouts, go to our API reference.
