@bot said in Ideas for a successor of DWC:
It would be interesting if the new version of DWC could intrinsically manage a farm of printers.
I'd love to see this built in. Meanwhile:
I guess the web servers would have to somehow communicate with one another.
Not really. Chris already has a discovery protocol. Once any printer provided the UI and script to a browser, that browser could find all the other printers.
I guess you would go to the appropriate URL for any DWC instance, and in some part of the UI you could see the status of the other printers on the network, and quickly jump to their DWC instance.
Exactly. If Chris wants to do that.
I guess that's actually not very important, because one could just have the multiple instances open in tabs, but it could streamline the process and cause less confusion for users who are not as intimate with the setup as the admin.
Tabs hide each other. Having "arms length" color codes on "one pane of glass" was a design goal for multiduetwebmonitor.
@t3p3tony said in Rasberry Pi + 7" better web setup:
@minim if its resistive then you can use a stylus with a sharp point. To be fair I seldom use the sliders so did not notice that when i was using it.
I think i will move this thread to DWC area and ask @chrishamm to add a "small screen touch friendly" skin for DWC to the wishlist. Not sure this can be a high priority right now with the other development ongoing.
Sounds good. With all the cheap android tables and old phones/ipads lying around that's a better option than having to deal with paneldue+fw upgrades and so on. I've never tried a panel due tho so I don't say it's bad but it's pricey and not environmental friendly to trash stuff I could have used instead
heh in his thread the second post actually brings up my concern about the sliders but it's not only those
I highly recommend not putting your Duet onto the internet without using a VPN to protect it. It is not an "IOT" device and not designed to be exposed to the internet. Generally exposing Machine tools to the internet directly is not a good idea in my opinion!
If you want to access DWC remotely then setting up a secure remote desktop connection to a machine on your local network may be a better idea.
@garyd9 @GaRv3 @chrishamm
Agreed so moved to the DWC wishlist.
@GaRv3 I am sure Christian would be very glad of a pull request to DWC that implemented a check against the latest release at a specified GitHub address and notified the user. Thanks for offering!
I've got an idea for a future concept but making a change as you requested to the current DWC version is not trivial.
The web interface provides basically everything that a user may wants to do on a tablet, so I am reluctant to cut off functionality depending on the screen size even if that might simplify things for you. The UI is already responsive so it is already more or less touch-screen optimised.
Once the layout and functionality of the web interface can be modified as needed you can achieve what you have in mind, but it will take a while longer before we get to this stage.
Looks like your connection to Duet3D was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
