Class SmartPlugin

Die Klasse SmartPlugin implementiert die Basisklasse aller SmartPlugins. Die vorhandenen Methoden sind im Folgenden beschrieben.

Zusätzlich werden die Methoden der Klasse lib.utils.Utils vererbt.

class lib.model.smartplugin.SmartPlugin(**kwargs)[Quellcode]

Bases: lib.model.smartobject.SmartObject, lib.utils.Utils

The class SmartPlugin implements the base class of call smart-plugins. The implemented methods are described below.

In adition the methods implemented in lib.utils.Utils are inhereted.

If the Plugin needs special code to be executed before it is unloaded, this method has to be overwirtten with the code needed for de-initialization

get_info()[Quellcode]

Returns a small plugin info like: class, version and instance name

Rückgabe

Rückgabetyp

str

get_parameter_value(parameter_name)[Quellcode]

Returns the configured value for the given parameter name

If the parameter is not defined, None is returned

Parameter

parameter_name (str) – Name of the parameter for which the value should be retrieved

Rückgabe

Configured value

Rückgabetyp

depends on the type of the parameter definition

get_parameter_value_for_display(parameter_name)[Quellcode]

Returns the configured value for the given parameter name

If the parameter is not defined, None is returned If the parameter is marked as ‚hide‘, only ‚*‘s are returned

Parameter

Update the config section of ../etc/plugin.yaml

Parameter

param_dict – dict with the pareters that should be updated

Rückgabe

get_loginstance()[Quellcode]

Returns a prefix for logmessages of multi instance capable plugins.

The result is an empty string, if the instancename is empty. Otherwise the result is a string containing the instance name preseeded by a ‚@‘ and traild by ‚: ‚.

This way it is easy to show the instance name in log messages. Just write

self.logger.info(self.get_loginstance()+“Your text“)

and the logmessage is preseeded by the instance name, if needed.

Rückgabe

instance name for logstring
