Usage (Documentation and tools)

You can learn the API and test it, simply accessing this URL: http(s)://{listen_address}:{port}/

e.g. if using default plugin configuration, go to https://localhost:9111/

When subscribed to this channel, clients will get a updated Zone when its boundaries are changed


When subscribed to this channel, clients will get a updated Plugin data when it is started/stopped or its configuration changes.
