Getting Started with IoTivity - Troubleshooting and FAQ

This information pertains to the “Getting Started” instructions found on IoTivity.org/getting-started. If having issues with the steps outlined there, please read through these common issues and questions.

  1. I'm having issues with curl - The IoTivity-Lite installer script can be found here: https://github.com/openconnectivity/IOTivity-setup/blob/master/install.sh. The OTGC installer script can be found here: https://github.com/openconnectivityfoundation/development-support/blob/master/otgc/linux/install.sh. Both can be copied to a local .sh files and executed if the curl command is failing.
  2. I'm building on Windows - Check out the “Building sample applications on Windows” section of the “README.rst” file, found in the “iotivity-constrained” directory under the IoTivity Lite project directory.
  3. I'm not building on Windows or Ubuntu Linux 16.04.5, and have generic toolchain issues - Try installing Ubuntu Linux 16.04.5, or creating an Ubuntu 16.04.5 VM using VMWare Workstation (free download for non-commercial use).
  4. I'm planning to develop a Client application, or contribute to the OCF Specifications - Try building and running IoTivity “main”, using the IoTivity build instructions.
  5. Is there an Android Client? Yes! The Android version of the OTGC can be installed following these instructions: Installing OTGC on Android
  6. What is “iotivity-constrained”? IoTivity-Constrained is the former name for IoTivity-Lite; they're the same thing. IoTivity-Lite is the newer and correct name, although the constrained term still hangs around on some URLs, etc. For more info on IoTivity-Lite visit About IoTivity-Lite
  7. Still no luck? Ask your question on the iotivity-dev email reflector.
