Driving Synexsis Using the Appsettings File

If you’ve read any of our other blog posts, you’ll notice the appsettings file is frequently mentioned. This json file contains the names of your devices, addressing and connection information. Synexsis reads this file and uses it to control to your devices. The syntax of Json files can be confusing at first. You’ll ask, “Where do the parenthesis and brackets go?” Or, “What should be in quotes”, and “Do I need a comma or a colon here?”.  

There are a number of Json editors and validators online, but our favorite is found at jsonformatter.org. Use it to build your appsettings file, download your Synexsis modules from NuGet, and free yourself from the tyranny of proprietary a/v control systems.
