Weather oracle
Hi, everybody. Today we will create our own oracle. To do this, we need a bot-example. Let’s install it.
git clone https://github.com/byteball/bot-example
cd bot-example
npm install
cp .env.testnet .env
Our oracle will accept a message like City: timestamp, where timestamp is the time to publish. Let’s write a message handler
headlessWallet.readSingleAddress(address => {
my_address = address;
console.error('my_address', address)
});
eventBus.on('text', (from_address, text) => {
text = text.trim();
const device = require('ocore/device.js');
const args = text.toLowerCase().split(':');
if (args.length === 2){
switch (args[0]) {
case 'berlin':
case 'moscow':
case 'helsinki':
case 'washington':
if(parseInt(args[1]) <= Date.now()){
console.error('dateNow', Date.now());
device.sendMessageToDevice(from_address, 'text', "Incorrect time");
}else {
arrQueue.push({city: args[0], time: args[1], device_address: from_address});
device.sendMessageToDevice(from_address, 'text', "ok");
}
break;
default:
device.sendMessageToDevice(from_address, 'text', "City not support");
break;
}
}else {
device.sendMessageToDevice(from_address, 'text', "Incorrect command");
}
});
Add a variable to store the queue
let arrQueue = [];
Now add to the queue
if(parseInt(args[1]) <= Date.now()){
device.sendMessageToDevice(from_address, 'text', "Incorrect time");
}else {
arrQueue.push({city: args[0], time: args[1], device_address: from_address});
device.sendMessageToDevice(from_address, 'text', "ok");
}
Now we need to check the queue once a minute
function checkQueue(){
arrQueue.forEach((el, index) => {
if(el.time <= Date.now()){
let result = JSON.parse(body);
postDataFeed(el.city, el.time, result.current.temp_c);
}
});
}
setTimeout(checkQueue, 60000);
Now we come to the main point. We need to publish data_feed
function postDataFeed(city, time, temp){
const network = require('ocore/network.js');
const composer = require('ocore/composer.js');
let data_feed = {};
data_feed[city + '_' + time] = temp;
let params = {
paying_addresses: [my_address],
outputs: [{address: my_address, amount: 0}],
signer: headlessWallet.signer,
callbacks: composer.getSavingCallbacks({
ifNotEnoughFunds: console.error,
ifError: console.error,
ifOk: function(objJoint){
network.broadcastJoint(objJoint);
}
})
};
let objMessage = {
app: "data_feed",
payload_location: "inline",
payload: data_feed
};
params.messages = [objMessage];
composer.composeJoint(params);
}
What is happening?
1) We create an object in data_feed and keep the temperature in it.
let data_feed = {};
data_feed[city + '_' + time] = temp;
2) We send the payment to ourselves as we only need to publish data_feed
paying_addresses: [my_address],
outputs: [{address: my_address, amount: 0}]
3) Create a message with data and signature
let objMessage = {
app: "data_feed",
payload_location: "inline",
payload: data_feed
};
4) Publish
composer.composeJoint(params);
That’s all. Your first oracle is ready. For the experiment, you can add more cities or make paid access. All code is available on github.Did you like the lesson? Any questions?
