EdgeX Foundry is a vendor-neutral, highly flexible and scalable open-source framework hosted by The Linux Foundation. It enables developers to build apps that run at the edge, acting as a middleware between the things and the cloud.
It provides the components to develop microservices responsible for data acquisition, data analytics and cloud connectors, exposing a rich set of APIs to allow full control of the system and configuration. The reference architecture allows scaling out to thousands of devices and sensors.
This snap is a part of EdgeX Foundry and contains the following reference services:
Core Data and Message Bus (Redis)
Registry and Config (Consul)
Rules Engine (eKuiper)
Alerts & Notifications
Configurable Application Service
API Gateway a.k.a. Reverse Proxy (Kong)
Secret Store (Vault)
Management Service Agent (deprecated)
Note that not all the above services are enabled and started by default.
Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install edgexfoundry
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa) and the latest release, Linux Mint 20 (Ulyana).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu.
On Linux Mint 20, /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref needs to be removed before Snap can be installed. This can be accomplished from the command line:
