That looks nice, an UI where you can se more than 4 device at the same time on the screen that is amazing :slight_smile:
I will download and test as soon as I’m of work.

I doesn’t work
I have uploaded all the files from http://code.mios.com/svn_public/mios_ipx800/trunk/AltUI/ to my Vera Edge (except the pdf ofcourse) and restarted lua but when I access http://192.168.0.10:3480/data_request?id=lr_ALTUI_Handler&command=home#
I only get “No handler”

I am pretty sure it does, are you sure you waited your lua to restart ? ( takes some time ). the plug in is ultra simple. you are on UI7 right ?

just added windowcover support.

Looks great. Will this work on UI5 or does it require UI7?

UI5 not tested. but I am pretty sure UI5 changes should be minimal as subsystem dependency is minimal. I only depend on a plugin ( to do a handler ) and the icon files. I reuse the icons/images and the dynamic icon logic described in devices json files , I have implemented both the ui5 and ui7 logic

I’ve not tested… But wow…good work!

thx ! just added device rename feature. ( click on device title, rename and click away ). almost instantaneous …

UI5 on a Veralite G, I went to Apps/Develop/Luup files and uploaded all the files except the pdf (13 of them) and selected restart Luup when finished

Then I went to the address http://veraip:3480/data_request?id=lr_ALTUI_Handler&command=home#

I get a No handler message (tried in Google Chrome desktop)

I tried a reboot as well, same result

Screenshots look great though, I look forward to getting this to work

i cant get the pdf to open

I too cant open the pdf :frowning:

Trying again with 2 posts:

  • First post => the Documentation about the project itself
  • Second post => the step by step install for UI5 ( similar in UI7 )

Thanks,

It works on Ui5 now :slight_smile:

Just added device variable view. ( variables are ordered alphabetaically & timestamp preseted as date … ) sounds trivial but allways been a grief I had against UI5 & UI7 that variable are not ordered and timestamp are unix timestamp. not really user friendly.

cant wait to try…

I have added some new key features:

  • dialog to see device variables
  • dialog to run/execute any UPNP action of the devices. but careful with this feature.
  • better error display management for jobs & results
  • installed plugin screen and button to update them from the list
  • slider for the dimmer device + special support for touch screens ( ipad… )

screen shots & install instruction is in the PDF doc.

code is in the same place http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_ipx800/browser/trunk/AltUI

enjoy

hi amg0, thanks again for this. I got the first version up and running on UI7 and its definitely got promise!

One request please. Could you zip up the files on code.mios.com into a single zip to d/l ? saves time downloading from the site and uploading for each version.

Thanks again

For the files, you can use this “link” : http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_ipx800/changeset/182/trunk?old_path=%2F&format=zip
but then please only install the files in the AltUI folder of the archive.
