Arduino mkr1000 does not Serial print upon GET using aRest library

I'm trying to create a REST server on an arduino mkr1000. upon searching google i came upon the aRest library which handles most of the stuff i need.

aRest library documentation

So i created a sample sketch based on the guides. Here is the code:

include < SPI.h >

include < WiFi101.h >

include < aREST.h >

aREST rest = aREST();

int status = WL_IDLE_STATUS; WiFiServer restServer(80);

char ssid[] = "user"; // not actual username char pass[] = "pass"; // not actual password

int clapMode(String data){ Serial.println("Request Recieved: " + data); }

void setup() {


rest.set_id("000"); rest.set_name("MKR1000"); rest.function("test",clapMode);

while ( status != WL_CONNECTED) { Serial.print("Attempting to connect to SSID: "); Serial.println(ssid); // Connect to WPA/WPA2 network. Change this line if using open or WEP network: status = WiFi.begin(ssid, pass); // wait 10 seconds for connection: delay(10000); }


// you're connected now, so print out the status: printWifiStatus();

// Start server restServer.begin(); Serial.println(F("Listening for connections..."));


void loop() { WiFiClient client = restServer.available(); if (!client) { return; } while(!client.available()){ delay(1); } rest.handle(client); }

void printWifiStatus() { // print the SSID of the network you're attached to: Serial.print("SSID: "); Serial.println(WiFi.SSID());

// print your WiFi shield's IP address: IPAddress ip = WiFi.localIP(); Serial.print("IP Address: "); Serial.println(ip);

IPAddress subnet = WiFi.subnetMask(); Serial.print("Netmask: "); Serial.println(subnet);

IPAddress gateway = WiFi.gatewayIP(); Serial.print("Gateway: "); Serial.println(gateway);

// print the received signal strength: long rssi = WiFi.RSSI(); Serial.print("signal strength (RSSI):"); Serial.print(rssi); Serial.println(" dBm"); }

The code works mostly. Upon using POSTMAN to perform a GET the arduino is able to give the appropriate response.

Now for the part that is not working is the endpoint i just have created using this code


upon performing a GET in postman, the arduino is able to give a response, but it should perform this code

int clapMode(String data){ Serial.println("Request Recieved: " + data); }

but on my serial Monitor i am not getting anything.


Also i could not find on how to tailor the response of the arduino from the request. How do i it ?

Thank you very much

My bad. I named the endpoint to “test” so it should be
