Matter darwin-framework-tool

An example application that uses Matter to send messages to a Matter server.

IMPORTANT: Must have an Apple developer signed certificate. Information can be found at code-signing.

Building the Example Application

See the build guide for general background on build prerequisites.

Building the example application is quite straightforward.

scripts/examples/ examples/darwin-framework-tool SOME-PATH/

which puts the binary at SOME-PATH/darwin-framework-tool.

Using the Client to commission a device

In order to send commands to a device, it must be commissioned with the client. darwin-framework-tool currently only supports commissioning and remembering one device at a time. The configuration state is stored in /tmp/chip_tool_config.ini; deleting this and other .ini files in /tmp can sometimes resolve issues due to stale configuration.

Commission a device

To initiate a client commissioning request to a device, run the built executable and choose the pairing mode.

Pair a device over IP

The command below will pair devices with the provided IP, discriminator and setup code.

$ darwin-framework-tool pairing ethernet {NODE_ID_TO_ASSIGN} 20202021 3840 {IP_ADDRESS}

In this case, the device will be assigned node id ${NODE_ID_TO_ASSIGN} (which must be a decimal number or a 0x-prefixed hex number).

Forget the currently-commissioned device

$ darwin-framework-tool pairing unpair

Using the Client to Send Matter Commands

To use the Client to send Matter commands, run the built executable and pass it the target cluster name, the target command name as well as an endpoint id.

The endpoint id must be between 1 and 240.

$ darwin-framework-tool onoff on 1

The client will send a single command packet and then exit.

How to get the list of supported clusters

To get the list of supported clusters, run the built executable without any arguments.

$ darwin-framework-tool

Example output:

  ./darwin-framework-tool cluster_name command_name [param1 param2 ...]

How to get the list of supported commands for a specific cluster

To get the list of commands for a specific cluster, run the built executable with the target cluster name.

$ darwin-framework-tool onoff

How to get the list of supported attributes for a specific cluster

To the the list of attributes for a specific cluster, run the built executable with the target cluster name and the read command name.

$ darwin-framework-tool onoff read

How to get the list of parameters for a command

To get the list of parameters for a specific command, run the built executable with the target cluster name and the target command name

$ darwin-framework-tool onoff on

Using Interactive mode

To start the interactive mode run the following command:

$ darwin-framework-tool interactive start

Once in interactive mode, ‘help’ will display commands available

Using the OTA Software Update app

OTA SW app will only work in interactive mode. In interactive mode there will be an additional command ‘otasoftwareupdateapp’. Running the following command in interactive will display available commands.

$ otasoftwareupdateapp

The following json is an example of a list of candidates to set in interactive mode with otasoftwareupdateapp candidate-file-path:

    "deviceSoftwareVersionModel": [
            "vendorId": 65521,
            "productId": 32769,
            "softwareVersion": 10,
            "softwareVersionString": "1.0.0",
            "cDVersionNumber": 18,
            "softwareVersionValid": true,
            "minApplicableSoftwareVersion": 0,
            "maxApplicableSoftwareVersion": 100,
            "otaURL": "/Users/josh/Desktop/OTACandidates/ota_v10.bin"

darwin-framework-tool allows to set the consent status on the Provider side with the following command:

$ otasoftwareupdateapp set-consent-status [granted, obtaining, denied]

By default, the consent will be set to unknown and the requestor will have to consent. If the requestor cannot consent, the update will be denied.
