gCn picker
« on: August 05, 2013, 05:05:01 am »
Dreaming of something like this since years.....and now finally making it!
I can't explain how awesome I feel ATM :P

So, what does this program do?
It helps you connect to gCn (global Calc net). For those familiar with it - it requires work in the terminal, setting stuff like your local name and your hub name over terminal parameters, not only requiering to have the computer turned on, but also to type stuff on it.
So, I thought that it would be awesome to skip the 'having to type something' part - and I made it now reality!
I run the program on my raspberry pi which is on 24/7 anyways, so yay.

The program on the pi checks every 5 seconds if a calculator is connected. If it is, it creates a link between calc and comp. Now you run a program on the calc (written with the DCSB libs) where you enter hub name, your name and the server you want to connect to.
The caclulator sends these informations to the comp and it starts then the client and you are connected to the internet on your fav hub - making the pc almost invisible!
here's a yt vid of it in action:


The program is attached! Note that it is still a beta.
you need to run the py file in a new screen. Also, if you use a other gcn client than gcnclient_rpi you'll need to change that in the py file all in the beginning.

huh, bookmarks?
Keep in mind that it is still in the beta phases and will probably change quite a lot (not how to use it, though, only how it is working)

Oh, i'm planning on make it store the last settings in a appvar.....just wait, first i'll need to make it currently a bit better with disconnecting, probably resulting in writing my own gcnclient all the way, not just half way as it is atm

I totally thought about gcnclient on a raspberry pi just yesterday and a day later there's a post about it! Looks very nice, maybe I'll have to haul my rpi around in class connected to my phones tethered 4G xD

agreed :)

At the moment i'm working on including my own gCn client in the program resulting in not needing and other programs and adding more awesome features :)

ha, lol, if you think about it i programmed almost every end of gCn then - a own client and a own metahub, the only thing missing would be stuff calculator-sided :D
Awesome.

Ok, necro-update
but therefor it is epic
It's like fully functional already!
You can change hubs and servers without a computer or anything, that is thanks to the custom client i made in python.

Here's a vid:
