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.
Swap out openSUSE_Leap_15.2 for openSUSE_Leap_15.1, openSUSE_Leap_15.0, or openSUSE_Tumbleweed if you’re using a different version of openSUSE.
With the repository added, import its GPG key:
sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
Finally, upgrade the package cache to include the new snappy repository:
sudo zypper dup --from snappy
Snap can now be installed with the following:
sudo zypper install snapd
You then need to either reboot, logout/login or source /etc/profile to have /snap/bin added to PATH.
Additionally, enable and start both the snapd and the snapd.apparmor services with the following commands:
