I am writing a Thing for a thermostat I’m developing myself using the Things Framework in node.js. I need to define a property for the temperature sensor that is not editable from the UI. I have seen that other things such as the Virtual Power Plug define properties such as the voltage or power that can not be edited, they just show a sensor value. But in my case I get a text box that allows the user to change the value.
I’ve read about
writable in the spec https://w3c.github.io/wot-thing-description/#introduction, and followed https://github.com/mozilla-iot/wot/issues/38 and https://github.com/mozilla-iot/gateway/issues/1261. My question is why there is already support for read-only properties (voltage, power) while the spec is not implemented yet ? How can I do the same meanwhile ?
