What better time to release headless hardware templates than the lead-up to Halloween!
If you're working with CI/CD systems, have an addiction to tiling window managers, or just need a tool without a GUI - the new headless templates are made just for you!
Follow the headless quickstart guide for a deeper explanation of the template, or for advanced users, start poking around the node template:
arc init hello-headless --template node
The default template includes an example to test connecting to a device flashed with
hello-blink firmware, manipulating and reading the LED state while printing the
led message periodically, before closing.

We expect to build out the documentation of the headless template over the next week, with the key focus on hardware-in-the-loop tests.
General fixes and changes
sourceOutsideDomainproperty is now correctly marked as optional.
useSendMessagehooks now support usage outside of a DeviceContext.
TimeSlicedLineChartnow supports a batch ingestion API
- New utility functions have been added to help facilitate headless-template and low-level hardware access
@electricui/script-utilitiesfunctions such as
startDeviceSessionas used in the headless template.
- Documentation will be updated over time to include the full public surface area, along with usage examples.
- New device management hooks have been added:
archas a new startup API (internal) which should be better suited to support a wider-range of template types going forward.
arcnow has more consistent login error messages, improved messaging for incompatible templates.
completioncommand to generate autocompletion (tab completion) files.
- i.e. Add
source <(arc completion bash)to your
.profilefor bash completion.
- i.e. Add
3.2.4is specified by the template
- Internal improvements to integration testing and screenshot testing.
@electricui/core-actionslibrary has been deprecated. This shouldn't impact you, as the API surface and usage was not made publicly available.
Added new examples for custom ConnectionsCards,
