Settings sample

Overview

This is a simple application demonstrating use of the settings runtime configuration module. In this application some configuration values are loaded form persistient storage and exported to persistent storage using different settings method. The example shows how to implement module handlers, how to register them.

Requirements

  • A board with settings support, for instance: nrf52840_pca10056

  • Or qemu_x86 target

Building and Running

This sample can be found under samples/subsys/settings in the Zephyr tree.

The sample can be build for several platforms, the following commands build the application for the qemu_x86.

west build -b qemu_x86 samples/subsys/settings
west build -t run

After running the image to the board the output on the console shows the settings manipulation messages.

Sample Output

***** Booting Zephyr OS build v2.1.0-rc1-123-g41091eb1d5e0 *****

*** Settings usage example ***

settings subsys initialization: OK.
subtree <alpha> handler registered: OK
subtree <alpha/beta> has static handler

##############
# iteration 0
##############

=================================================
basic load and save using registered handlers

load all key-value pairs using registered handlers
loading all settings under <beta> handler is done
loading all settings under <alpha> handler is done

save <alpha/beta/voltage> key directly: OK.

load <alpha/beta> key-value pairs using registered handlers
<alpha/beta/voltage> = -3025
loading all settings under <beta> handler is done

save all key-value pairs using registered handlers
export keys under <beta> handler
export keys under <alpha> handler

load all key-value pairs using registered handlers
export keys under <beta> handler
export keys under <alpha> handler

=================================================
loading subtree to destination provided by the caller

direct load: <alpha/length/2>
direct load: <alpha/length/1>
direct load: <alpha/length>
  direct.length = 100
  direct.length_1 = 41
  direct.length_2 = 59

=================================================
Delete a key-value pair

immediate load: OK.
  <alpha/length> value exist in the storage
delete <alpha/length>: OK.
  Can't to load the <alpha/length> value as expected

=================================================
Service a key-value pair without dedicated handlers

<gamma> = 0 (default)
save <gamma> key directly: OK.
