register(applicationName, uuid) methods are only relevant when coupled with the provisioning of a physical device. For instance, these
resin-sdk methods are used by our
resin-cli to implement the
resin device init command, which is also part of our
resin quickstart wizzard:
$ resin device init -h
Usage: device init
Use this command to download the OS image of a certain application and write it to an SD Card.
Notice this command may ask for confirmation interactively.
You can avoid this by passing the `--yes` boolean option.
$ resin device init
$ resin device init --application MyApp
--application, -a, --app <application> application name
--yes, -y confirm non interactively
--advanced, -v enable advanced configuration
