WWW::FBX - Freebox v6 OS Perl Interface

FREEBOX SDK API 3.0 and 4.0

This version provides the API 3.0 and 4.0 support through the APIv3 role but other version can be provided by creating a new role.


Authentication is provided through the Auth role but other authentication mechanism can be provided by creating a new role.

This module provides a perl interface to the Freebox v6 APIs.

See for a full description of the APIs.


 my $fbx = WWW::FBX->new( app_id => "APP ID", app_name => "APP NAME",
                          app_version => "1.0", device_name => "device" );

 my $fbx = WWW::FBX->new( app_id => "APP ID", app_name => "APP NAME",
                          app_version => "1.0", device_name => "device", 
                          track_id => "48", app_token => "2/g43EZYD8AO7tbnwwhmMxMuELtTCyQrV1goMgaepHWGrqWlloWmMRszCuiN2ftp",
                          base_url => "" ,
                          debug => 1 );

Mandatory constructor parameters are app_id, app_name, app_version, device_name. When track_id and app_token are also provided, they will be used to authenticate. Otherwise, new track_id and app_token will be given by the freebox. These can be then used for later access. base_url defaults to which is the base uri when accessing the freebox from the LAN side.

Note that adding the settings or parental permissions is only possible through the web interface (Paramètres de la Freebox -> Gestion des accès -> Applications)

The constructor takes care of detecting the API version and authentication.

The return value of all api methods is the result structure of APIResponse, or undef if no result is returned.

The full json response of the last request is available through the uar method (usefull when using the new method) and the complete HTTP::Response is available through the uarh method.

Api methods will die if the APIResponse is an error. It is up to the caller to handle this exception.


The list of currently available services implemented in this module is given in WWW::FBX::Role::API::APIv3.

A script called is provided in the script directory.

You should first call it without argument to store a token in app_token on the disk. Once physically authenticated on the freebox itself, the token file will be reused for subsequent call. You can then grant all permissions on the freebox web interface if you will.

Witout parameter, a simple connection check is done, app permissions are shows and status of the internet connection is displayed.

Commands requiring a suffix can be send by adding a simple parameters on the command line. When more parameters are required, it is possible to send a json structure, see EXAMPLES. You need to escape the accolades in that case.

EXAMPLES --help --debug connection system call_log call_log 2053 reboot reset_freeplug F4:CA:42:22:53:EF/reset cp '{"files":["Disque dur/ds.txt"], "dst":"Disque dur/Temp", "mode":"both"}'
