Hey OpenAg friends,
I’m working on a little web app that can control Food Computers. This is my build diary. Here’s the idea:
- This app will be a basic dashboard for Food Computers, aimed at makers and tinkers. It will expose all the basic controls, along with useful diagnostic features like data export.
- A hopeful goal is to serve this web app from the Raspberry Pi itself. This way, every Food Computer will have a user interface right out of the box.
- In addition, we can have have other apps that use the same REST API (like the Unity app, for example), designed for specific users (e.g. “schools” or “scientists”).
I’m just getting started. Step 1 is getting a “blink test” up and running.
All the code is on Github if you want to follow along (but I don’t recommend trying to run it yet ): https://github.com/OpenAgInitiative/openag-ui.
