Bad Documentation, bad web interface

  • Hello, i was suspecting a lot of the unipi board, bought it a long time ago but started
    working on it this week. After installing (Pi3 + newest Jessie) and after calling the
    url of my PI the index.html is showing but almost nothing is working correctly. I tried FF, Chrome
    Safari, on different platforms, besides the sliders for the relays there is nothing working like expected.

    Menus are not opening, etc.

    Then there is a official Technology forum, where i am posting now, but also a old, and a lot of links to the wiki (not working) but thats it. No deeper explanation on how to get working with the digital in-output - Analog in-output, nada.

    I managed to get a working python script so that i can switch on or off the relays from my ERP software (it was thought for that) but i want more information and sample scripts. But there is literally nothing, not on the web not here. Am i really to stupid, did i miss something? Or is it a fact that this board is only use by a few freaks and the rest has to see how one getting there?

    I think it is really important to place some examples to understand things right and get some success in the first hours of experimenting, if not a product will get onto the shelf and never leave it. Maybe Unipi does not care, and they are thinking short term based but to make this a success, you have to do a bit more in my opinion.

    If i am overseeing things, please send me some links to where i can find example scripts in python
    i am using the ws.send('{"cmd":"set","dev":"relay","circuit": "'+str(switch)+'" ,"value":"'+str(status)+'"}')

    Also tell me if i am the only one where this unipi control panel is not working as it should, in this
    way it is no fun at all.


  • As i am not able to edit my text, here some examples of links i found: 1.1

    Both links lands nowhere, what is this?

    Also found a post someone comlaining on the lack of documentation, which was in 2016 and the answer is that there will be a new web page etc. nothing yet. What is this?
