SendToHTTP not working

#1 Post by sentinel » 26 Dec 2017, 15:28

Hi guys,
I wanted your help with SendToHTTP:
I have 2 wemos d1 mini, both flashed with EspEasy. The 1st wemos has a temperature sensor (DS18b20) and a TM1637 display. The 2nd wemos has an LCD display. I want to send the temperature from the 1st wemos to the second and display it on the LCD. I cannot get the SendToHTTP command to work. I tried a simple test rule on the 2nd wemos:

Code: Select all

On System#Boot do
    timerSet,1,10
endon
On Rules#Timer=1 do
  SendToHTTP <IP>,80,/control?cmd=lcd,1,1,test123
  lcd,2,1,- %systime% -
  timerSet,1,10
endon
The log shows:

Code: Select all

194787 : EVENT: Rules#Timer=1
194791 : ACT : SendToHTTP 192.168.1.72,80,/control?cmd=lcd,1,1,test123
201086 : ACT : lcd,2,1,- 16:19 -
201102 : ACT : timerSet,1,10
201105 : WD : Uptime 3 ConnectFailures 0 FreeMem 27992
The time shows correctly on the second line of the display, but not the text "test123" :(
When I enter the following from a browser, it works: http://<IP>/control?cmd=lcd,1,1,test123

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
(apologies if this is not the correct part of the forum to post this)

I have no LCD to test it, but the WIKI says:
SendToHTTP <IP address>, <Portnumber>, <command>

I don't get it. Are you using SendToHTTP on the same unit as the LCD?

Yes, I am using SendToHTTP on the same unit as the LCD. I tried using it on the other unit too, but it also doesn't work (unit-1 with the SendToHTTP Rule, sending the request to unit-2 which has the LCD).
Do you know if there's a way to analyse the http request message?
Do I need any particular settings in Devices --> LCD?

I have tried a few things:
if the command is "lcd,2,1,hello world" --> the display shows "hello world"
if the command is "lcd,2,1,hello,world" --> the display shows "world"
if the command is "lcd,2,1,hello,wo,r,l,d" --> the display shows "d"
It seems that the software looks for the last comma and displays the text after that. So I thought there may be a similar problem with the HTTP request since the path contains many commas ("/control?cmd=lcd,1,1,test123").
I found that the HTTP request is generated in file "Command.ino", line #201. The path is built a few lines above (#196-197), using the function getParamStartPos (in file "Misc.ino"). I then made a simple c program and recoded the same function. The function works properly. So I guess that the HTTP request must be correct.

I also tried this:
SendToHTTP 192.168.1.72,80,control?cmd=lcd,1,1,%systime%
the log shows:
2858584 : ACT : SendToHTTP 192.168.1.72,80,control?cmd=lcd,1,1,16:44
which is an indication that it correctly inserts the time. But again, nothing displayed :(

Does anyone have any ideas? Can I test SendToHTTP in another way?
Is the comma handling (I described above) an error?

yes, the SendToHTTP is sent from the same unit. I have tried the SendToHTTP from another unit. It also doesn't work :(
When it comes to the command "lcd,2,1,hello world", I can only send it from the same unit.

I cannot understand that SendToHTTP would ever work on the same unit as the receiver. Why? Because the ESP8266 is a single threaded unit and during the time the unit is sending the HTTP request it is occupied doing that and are not able to respond to any HTTP requests. The internal rules are different since it will write to memory and in later loops the unit will read this from memory, thus you can make commands trigger internally.

So first of, stop experimenting with the command on the same unit that you want to test. Second I'd try to only use a computer to send these requests. If this is working as intended I'd start testing sending from another ESP unit. If this is not working we might have a bug on our hands.

Thanks for the explanation and suggestions. I'll be away on a trip for 2 weeks. I'll try them out when I get back.
Do you know how could I somehow trace the http request message?

I personally use Fiddler but Wireshark is also possible. Maybe even try Postman which I use for testing HTTP based API.

Hi guys,

took me a while to reply. I think I found the problem. Let me give you some more information about my configuration:
module-1: wemos d1 mini pro, running build 120
module-2: wemos d1 mini pro, running a custom build: ESPEasy-v2.0.0-dev12+P073.rar, which I found here: Connecting a TM1637 4-Digit Display

The idea is: module-1 has an LCD display. Module-2 has a 7-segment display (supported by the custom build) and a ds18b20 sensor. Module-2 displays the temperature on the 7-segment display and also sends it using http to module-1.
Module-1 displays the temperature received.

Now, it seems there is a problem with sendToHTTP with the custom build. SendToHTTP works from module-1 to module-2, but not the other way around.
Do you have any ideas? Or how to further troubleshoot?

Thanks!

Try the official (mega) build. The plugin is part of it now.

thanks for the reply. I tried with this: ESPEasy_mega-20180209
but it still doesn't work.

And one more thing: When my Rules contain "on Clock#Time do" (to trigger sendToHTTP), I can see "ACT : SendToHTTP..." in the log. But when my Rules contain a timer, I don't see the timer expiring in the log (and the log entry about SendToHTTP). As if the timer never expires.

Just so I understand. The time with timer is executed but the log is not populated?

There's nothing in the log. I don't know if the time is executed, because all I had was the SendToHTTP. Or did I not understand your question?

Yes, I wanted to know if the problem was that the rule never triggered or if it "only", was the missing information in log. I guess you don't know?

no, I don't know, since what the rule contains is SendToHTTP, which also doesn't work.

I think the rule is never triggered. I started 2 timers: When timer-1 expires, I switch the on-board LED on. When timer-2 expires, I switch it off. Nothing happens.

Okay, that explains it. You cannot use timers like that. They will start tugging for that poor gpio 2. You need to do it like this.

Code: Select all

On System#Boot Do
 TimerSet,1, 5
EndOn

On Rules#Timer=1 Do
 Gpio,2,1
 TimerSet,2,10
EndOn

On Rules#Timer=2 Do
 Gpio,2,0
 TimerSet,1,5
EndOn
You need to do this in order to know that they will trigger in sequence.

This also doesn't work. My Rules are:

Code: Select all

On System#Boot Do
 TimerSet,1, 2
EndOn

On Rules#Timer=1 Do
 Gpio,2,1
 TimerSet,2,4
EndOn

//on Clock#Time do
//  SendToHTTP 192.168.1.9,80,/control?cmd=lcd,1,1,--%systime%--
//endon

On Rules#Timer=2 Do
 Gpio,2,0
 TimerSet,1,2
EndOn
Take a look at the log:

Code: Select all

5390 : EVENT: System#Boot
5395 : ACT : TimerSet,1, 2
5426 : EVENT: Processing time:36 milliSeconds
5427 : WD : Uptime 0 ConnectFailures 0 FreeMem 18832
5442 : EVENT: Clock#Time=Sun,21:50

213269 : EVENT: Clock#Time=Sun,21:54
213296 : EVENT: Processing time:27 milliSeconds
I think the timer starts but never expires?
I have also tried my code (the one in my screenshot) in a module running build 120 and it works ok.

thanks guys. I tried it without space but it also doesn't work :(
After the module boots, I can see the following in the log:

but there is no other similar log entry. And of course no led blinking :(

Hi,
ok, I flashed my other module with this binary: ESP_Easy_mega-20180209_test_ESP8266_1024.
The timers start and expire correctly, led flashes. I also added a SendToHTTP command when a timer expires. It also works! I am sending the http request to my laptop. I have apache and run wireshark so I see that the request from wemos is fine. I'll test sending it to the other module with the display (I need to do some re-wiring). But it should also work.
I'll erase the flash and re-flash the other module. What can be the problem?

I think the problem is with the TM1637 plugin:
When I disable the plugin and reboot the device, both the timers and SendToHTTP work. When I enable it, both stop working. This happens with both my modules.

I have also tried the following rules:

Code: Select all

On System#Boot Do
 SendToHTTP 192.168.1.2,80,/control?cmd=lcd,1,1,booting
EndOn

On Clock#Time Do
  SendToHTTP 192.168.1.2,80,/control?cmd=lcd,2,2,--%systime%--
EndOn
and the behaviour is the same: when the plugin is not enabled, both SendToHTTPs work. When it is enabled they don't work.

Just to clarify: when I say "plugin enabled" I mean that I have configured the display and then I enable/disable it using the tick-box.

did you reproduce it?
I'm trying to find out what goes wrong when the 7-segment is enabled. I'm slow :|
I can see that after I enable the device, when the code reaches the point to check if there are any timers active, it finds no timer active.

There has been a proposed fix for these displays.

Could you add an issue on Github about this, describing as much as you can.
I'm loosing track of where to gather information on issues/bugs here on the forum and although the issue list on Github isn't perfect either, it is at least a bit more contained than the forum here.

Should we add a note in wiki in the plugin development page to indicate that plugins should not by default return success = true (if the plugin didn't do anything), since Rules, Timers and other plugins will be affected?

I totally agree such important things should be documented.
And maybe we should just add some kind of template file for plugin/controller in the sourcecode, describing what should be where.
This may be comment code, but it should turn up when searching for some keywords in the source.

This is a very good idea.
I made an attempt to create a plugin template file (which needs a lot of description added). I have gone through the bugs and wiki and created a list of hints I thought are good to know when developing a plugin. I have also added a few bugs which I think provide good information, but I can't summarise it :?
Does that help?

Can you add a Github issue for this?
On the forum, good ideas tend to get lost.

Hello, all
first I want to thank the developers and everyone involved for this wonderful product - ESP Easy
with all due respect, the ESP Easy wiki lacks real, living examples, only syntax.

well, my hard:
1. esp8266 nodemcu, bme280 mega-20180822 (192.168.0.6)
2. esp8266 nodemcu, tm1637 mega-20180822 (192.168.0.7)

my task: to simplify (without mosquito and the like) transfer the temperature value from unit1 to the display of tm1637 unit2
my settings look at the attached screenshots
please correct the settings of the rules

Thank you
(I apologize for me the bad english)

We are very much aware that the wiki is lacking in every aspect. We're working on a new GUI and integrated wiki which will be easier to maintain.
