Node-Red-Contrib-UI: Just a quick update … not heard anything from Andrei re: node-red-contrib-ui recently – I could not get his experimental version to work and I’ve heard nothing since. I do hope the project is still alive. I have high hopes for it but right now the display is a bit messy.
Blynk: the one remaining issue with that UI for me was the fact that when paused it was unaware of changes to your target board. So my assumption is that the designers figured you would ONLY control, say your Arduino or ESP from Blynk itself – the reality is that you might have a second user on Blynk – or a completely separate set of control instructions going on – so in my case I have Node-Red controlling the boards – and talking to the local Blynk server. The SERVER is aware of changes – as logging into the APP updates the display – but when the app is paused it seems unaware of changes when brought back online. I say WAS – because as of this evening – there is an update to the APP – and you need the updated server.jar file if you’re using a local server. I’ll do a new blog on this but it all seems to work just fine… Could this be the one??
Coming soon a review of the Roseapple Pi which looks to be very powerful with 2GB of RAM and USB 3!
And that’s it for now.
