Analytics Catalog is a service in GE Predix that provides a repository for hosting and exposing analytic assets. Today, we’re introducing a Cloud Foundry command-line interface (CF CLI) plugin that enables you to access Predix Analytics Catalog features via the CLI.

Using this plugin, you can upload and test your Predix analytics services. For instance, one can add “an analytic” to the catalog, delete it, test it in a Cloud Foundry environment, and download an analytic’s artifact through the CF CLI.

In the agriculture industry, the Internet of Things helps to build smart farming systems. Using information from sensors and machinery, such solutions enable farmers to optimize their decisions and overcome many challenges they face.

With proper technologies and expertise at your disposal, these systems can be created in a very reasonable amount of time. Here are the details about the prototype of an automation system for greenhouse farming that we managed to create in 48 hours—employing Raspberry Pi 3, an I2C light sensor, Node.js, and GE Predix.

Introducing a One-Click Button for Deploying to GE Predix

Stas Turlo

deploy_to_ge_predix_button

Do you have a sample app built for Predix that you want to share with others? In the past, you had to describe how to clone a Git repo step-by-step, set up build tools, and provide a Cloud Foundry script for pushing your app to the platform.

Today, we’re introducing the functionality for implementing the “Deploy to Predix” button, which automates the process. This button can be embedded in any README file, blog, article, web page, etc., linking to a publicly visible GitHub repository. It makes your audience immediately productive, deploying a copy of your app into their own Predix accounts—with a single click.

Below, we cover how to create the button for your own app and also explain what happens when a developer clicks it.
