func Open Uses

func Open(name string) (onewire.BusCloser, error)

Open opens an 1-wire bus by its name, an alias or its number and returns an handle to it.

Specify the empty string "" to get the first available bus. This is the recommended default value unless an application knows the exact bus to use.

Each bus can register multiple aliases, each leading to the same bus handle.

"Bus number" is a generic concept that is highly dependent on the platform and OS. On some platform, the first bus may have the number 0, 1 or higher. Bus numbers are not necessarily continuous and may not start at 0. It was observed that the bus number as reported by the OS may change across OS revisions.

When the 1-wire bus is provided by an off board plug and play bus like USB via a FT232H USB device, there can be no associated number.

func Register Uses

func Register(name string, aliases []string, number int, o Opener) error

Register registers an 1-wire bus.

Registering the same bus name twice is an error, e.g. o.Name(). o.Number() can be -1 to signify that the bus doesn't have an inherent "bus number". A good example is a bus provided over a FT232H device connected on an USB bus. In this case, the bus name should be created from the serial number of the device for unique identification.

func Unregister Uses

func Unregister(name string) error

Unregister removes a previously registered 1-wire bus.

This can happen when an 1-wire bus is exposed via an USB device and the device is unplugged.

type Opener Uses

type Opener func() (onewire.BusCloser, error)

Opener opens an handle to a bus.

It is provided by the actual bus driver.

type Ref Uses

type Ref struct {
    // Name of the bus.
    // It must not be a sole number. It must be unique across the host.
    Name string
    // Aliases are the alternative names that can be used to reference this bus.
    Aliases []string
    // Number of the bus or -1 if the bus doesn't have any "native" number.
    // Buses provided by the CPU normally have a 0 based number. Buses provided
    // via an addon (like over USB) generally are not numbered.
    Number int
    // Open is the factory to open an handle to this 1-wire bus.
    Open Opener

Ref references an 1-wire bus.

It is returned by All() to enumerate all registered buses.

func All Uses

func All() []*Ref

All returns a copy of all the registered references to all know 1-wire buses available on this host.

The list is sorted by the bus name.


// Make sure periph is initialized.
if _, err := host.Init(); err != nil {

// Enumerate all 1-wire buses available and the corresponding pins.
fmt.Print("1-wire buses available:\n")
for _, ref := range onewirereg.All() {
    fmt.Printf("- %s\n", ref.Name)
    if ref.Number != -1 {
        fmt.Printf("  %d\n", ref.Number)
    if len(ref.Aliases) != 0 {
        fmt.Printf("  %s\n", strings.Join(ref.Aliases, " "))

    b, err := ref.Open()
    if err != nil {
        fmt.Printf("  Failed to open: %v", err)
    if p, ok := b.(onewire.Pins); ok {
        fmt.Printf("  Q: %s", p.Q())
    if err := b.Close(); err != nil {
        fmt.Printf("  Failed to close: %v", err)
