How to update your OpenAPS rig in the future¶
You’ve probably heard about all kinds of cool new features that you want to try. If they’re part of the master branch already, you just need to go enable them (usually by re-running the oref0-setup script).
However, if it’s a brand-new feature that’s being tested or is recently added to master, you’ll need to install the new version of
oref0 first. By the way, if you want to check which version of oref0 you are currently running,
npm list -g oref0 and if you want to check which branch
cd ~/src/oref0 and then
Step 1: Install the new version¶
Recommended: To get the new stuff from the newest released master version of oref0¶
cd ~/src/oref0 && git checkout master && git pull && sudo npm install -g oref0
(If you get a message that you need to commit or stash, use command
Optional: To get on “dev” branch to test even more recently added new stuff¶
Or, if the feature you want hasn’t been released yet, and you want to test the latest untested development version of
cd ~/src/oref0 && git checkout dev && git pull
npm run global-install
Step 2: Re-run oref0-setup¶
Now that you’ve updated your
oref0 version, you will want to run the oref0-setup script (
cd && ~/src/oref0/bin/oref0-setup.sh) again. See this section for a guide of what the setup script will be prompting you to enter.
Step 3: Remember to set your preferences!¶
Reminder! You’ll need to re-set your preferences in
preferences.json. See the preferences page to see what preferences might have changed or become available since your last update.
To edit any of your preferences, you can enter
edit-pref (as a shortcut) or
cd ~/myopenaps && nano preferences.json
