The Node Data Service is a simple JSON web API that lives at each node within a SHRINE network. It serves the contents of the metaData section within shrine.conf, SHRINE's configuration file.

The Node Data service responds to three different GET commands:

  1. /ping: Returns pong; this is primarily a test to see if the service is active.
  2. /data: Returns all of the contents within the metaData section as JSON.
  3. /data?key=exampleKeyName: Returns the configuration value that corresponds to 'exampleKeyName'. Replace 'exampleKeyName' with other key names to get the correct corresponding value.
