Native Android app (auto-gen based)
Dean Roddey Wrote:So, just to start some discussion on the Android app I'm working on... It is not based templates, but a fixed interface based on the same room config info that drives the auto-generation system. The idea is very simple, almost no configuration. Basically the same look as the auto-generated templates.

Here is the latest source code zip. See posts on this date in this thread for the details... But basically this one how has lights, weather, and has music and movies implemented form browsing to preview and media playback startup. No Now/Playing slash transport control screen yet. No security yet.

And the .APK file to load into your device. It's not a file type known to the server, so right click and do download as.

NOTE: This guy depends on additions to the XML GW information that have been added as of 4.3.924! So you need to be at that version or later to use it, and it only works with the new V2 driver architecture versions of media media renderer drivers (the only type really updated so far.)

This version now supports the global actions that you can define in the auto-generation stuff as of 4.3.911, so these can be used to insert custom logic into the app indirectly.

Will this work with the latest version of CQC?

No, it was just an experiment, and was dropped. We will be doing an HTML5 based client instead.

So we will be able to use any tablet via IP address? Any idea when that will be ready?

In theory, as long as it supports HTML5 and Websockets. It will initially only support auto-generation content, and even then none of the customized content that you can do with the auto-generation system (because it can't just convert templates to HTML.) So it will have pre-fab support for the core auto-generation stuff, and that's it. At least initially. Anything more than that and you need to use RIVA.

As to when, it's hard to say. It'll be there when it's there basically. It's the big ticket item for 4.7, and I've been working a lot on Websocket support as the prerequisite bit of technology we need before we can start on it proper.

Did the HTML client ever get done? I dislike the the TARIVA client because of the connection issues.

That's something that will come as part of 5.0. Most likely there will be an initial 5.0 without it, since we really want to get the other stuff that 5.0 includes out there as fast as possible. Then the HTML5 client would come after that, and be based on it. Actually some work probably would be done on it in the later 5.0 beta stages, while the other stuff is being vetted by users.

I had many connection issues with TaRiva as well and abandoned it. Some of us use an RDP client on phones etc which actually can work pretty well. Maybe try that to hold you over if you haven't already. I find the Microsoft RDP client on my Android works pretty well now. (adding the multi RDP hack to a Windows install is useful if going that route. Prevents the main user from being logged out while RDP is active)
