Raspberry Pi projects

#1 Post by Vaughn » Sun Apr 08, 2018 9:46 am

I am trying to get away from Phidgets due to price and popularity, I would rather focus on Pi support.

Some people were supporting the Pi through Rest, which is fine, but I would like to support a couple things, like UDP, MySQL and maybe an api.

MySQL is so easy in Python, I thought it would be nice to skip the Rest limitations and just call the DB stored procs directly for full and direct control. That is good for sending, but it also needs a UDP listener so it can be an OSA Client service and receive commands. The API is mostly just a direct parameter for parameter wrapper for the DB calls, so using them is fine, it just helps hide the SQL and save a few lines of code to have an API.

Storing the stuff in Git, packaging, set up, etc, I have not really got to or have any experience with. I think the Pi Zero W and WH are awesome though and can make any $2 sensor wireless.

If anyone has any input in what you would like to see for Pi support, let me know.
