perhaps we should change the title of this thread - or move it to "websockets" REST doesn't seem to make sense anymore...

I am not worried about the display of these values in realtime using a Vue value store (modified by websocket information). I think we could get to 30fps with less than 100ms latency - if the hist3 can pump the info out that fast - and still manage the wifi and the websockets...

Ok - I see. Then the interface will also need to show a folder list (with preview / editing options and perhaps metadata viewer - respective to data type.) Do you also expect / hope to send whitelisted commands via some kind of mock-shell?

Wow - I didn't know that that was one of the deliverables. What do you mean by "etc."? Yes, we can serve from any folder. We would need to investigate the possibility of sym-linking a "DCIM" type of folder, but there isn't any real reason why it shouldn't work.

Here is how we could even serve http with libwebsockets, which would help to do the automatic upgrade to ws:// - it is public domain licensed.

So I have "implemented something" - the frontend for the WebRemote and worked with the team today to design a spec. But I would still like @jatha to show some evidence that suggests that "the camera has plenty of resources". I find this hard to believe (its only a relatively low-powered dual arm!!!) and only benchmarks running during a camera state where it is filming and executing scripts could change my opinion. (Or alternatively, a video of htop screen.)

Of course - usually you have the whole reverse proxy cruft because you don't know who / how many clients you will have. The luxury behind this WebRemote as we are building it is that we will at most have exactly one client, who has "properly" identified itself with a UUID. We don't care about the rest of the universe.

And furthermore, the only purpose for having lighttpd is to serve the initial html/js/css to the WebRemote. After a ws:// connection has been made we can even turn it off. (Technically speaking, we could even just use netcat to serve the folder to the browser.)

As far as the API goes, I would like to suggest versioning it according to a reference standard that documents the REST call, its expectations and all values. The current state (at T865) is what I would consider to be V0 - because it is not systematically standardised. As soon as everything is "written in stone", I would propose promoting the API to V1.

  • One thing to keep in mind is that we should get a confirmation from the camera back to the remote that a particular setting/command was applied successfully.
  • Also can we push commands from camera to webremote currently without polling?

i would suggest using vuex to store the "mutations" within the browser - but be careful with the latest NPM - they botched the release and it is chowning system critical folders - essentially bricking the device. It is only a temporary problem though.

We are using in a framework for vue.js called quasar. With one code base we deliver a single-page website, electron native apps for windows, mac and linux and also use cordova for making android and iOS apps. It may be a bit of overkill for your use-case, but if you plan to deliver for more than just phones, maybe it makes sense to tool up at the beginning. That was our decision - and I can say we do not regret investing some extra time early.

One other thing about the designs you linked to, a website in a browser will pretty much always have the OS chrome and Browser chrome at the top. In landscape mode there is a lot of real-estate that goes away. There's probably a way to do that with html5 fullscreen - but that is a part of the spec that browsers / os's have never really gotten right. It will need some testing and tweaking.
