I'm not entirely sure what I am looking for, but I need to be able to run the REST API on my Pi. I'll explain my current setup first.
I have a Raspberry Pi, that eventually is going to be able to communicate with Salesforce using REST, and when a High Priority Support Case comes in, the Pi will turn on a flashing light.
At the moment, I have the Pi connected into my network running Raspbian. It hosts a website using Lighttpd, with Python CGI enabled. So I have set it up so that I can use POST from the index page, specifiying a password to allow control, power on/off, a time period to stay on, and the device I want to control. So for example, I could go to:
And that would turn on Device 1 indefinitely. (I don't think it's relevant, but the way that all works is via a Python wrapper, which allows me to send commands to a USB RF Transmitter, which is paired to 3 RF Sockets plugged into the wall).
So I have most of it working, it's just the connectivity with Salesforce I need to work out. But I have never used REST before, and don't really have much experience in programming anyway. My friend knows how to setup the Salesforce side, which I don't have direct access to, so I just need to get the REST API setup.
Does anyone here have any experience with it? Where should I start?
