Re: Reacticz dashboard: Network without Internet

Postby NietGiftig » Wednesday 04 January 2017 10:49

My domoticz server also runs on a wireless network without Internet connection.
Tin Foil Hat etc.etc ;)
So all wireless devices incl tablets never see the Internet, and better, the Internet does not see them.
In my Raspi server i have a set of ip rules so it sees only the parts of the Internet I choose

In Reacticz there are calls to the outside world from my tablet
I've lost the top row of icons / fonts. (google fonts?) when I am on an network without Internet access.
I know that weather underground etc is not usable without Internet, so i do not call it from my tablet.
I can still use the results from Domoticz queries.
But calls to lets say google analytics for my home automation tablets are not necessary in my view.

Is there a way around this?

Thanks NietGiftig, sorry for not mentioning that earlier. I've added a note in the readme.

Do not be sorry, sometimes we have to do some research on our own.
Especialy when it is easy to detect ;-)

You can keep your tin foil hat, the update I've just pushed a few minutes ago no longer relies on external assets such as webfonts (you'll need to checkout and rebuild but you'll get the icons back). Also, when you build the project yourself there are no Google analytics embedded (there are some in the public server that help me figure out whether it's being used).

I only noticed it because I have NoScript in my browser.

Haha nope, I respect that, especially for a home automation network :D
The latest upade should now work fine without internet access.

Wow, you have done a great job with Reacticz!
Just installed it on my local server and did some first test. Impressive and a very quick response when switching on/off the lights.

Some small points:
* the temperature sensor is only showing the value, not the name in Domoticz. I have several temp sensors, so also showing the name of the sensor would be nice
* it took me some time to understand how to switch of a dimmer, maybe a small Off text/icon on the left could be handy

Keep up the good work :D

Thank you for your feedback G3rard, you are right: with multiple weather sensors it's inconvenient. I didn't care because I only have one but since you ask I'll put the name back on temperature widgets. Regarding the dimmer I agree it's not immediately clear but on the other hand I'd like to keep the design as minimalistic as possible... I'll think about it :)

Also glad to read that you feel it's fast. That was one of the main goals for me, and that's thanks to MQTT (and React) :)

Cheers!

Thanks for the Temp name, it was on my list to ask
Did you have any plans for a selector Switch implementation?
That is one of the hardest to use on a Tablet/Phone with Domoticz
(unless your fingers have the size of a pencil)

I've added an issue to keep track of the temperature widget thing.

Please create another issue on the repo for the selector switch. I'd be happy to implement it, but I don't use those myself so some context/examples would help me understand how to do it right. I understand it's currently hard to use on Domoticz because the options are tiny ? Maybe I can do something more convenient than a drop-down...

I've just pushed an update that puts the names on the weather widgets.

You're right about the minimalistic design. Once you know how to turn of the dimmer, it's no problem anymore :)

I noticed another thing with a Zwave dimmer I have. It can dim from 1-100 in steps of 1, but currently only dimmer with steps of 16 seem to be supported. This means the Zwave light can only be set to a low value.
I will add an issue on Github with some more details.
Will also add an issue for the selector switch.
I hope I am not spamming you to much with the issues ;)

Not at all, this is the right place to submit requests. I can keep track more easily. Thanks for the details and JSON data, that's very helpful.

Regarding the dimmer, I was actually aware of the issue. It's a bit tricky to fix because MQTT doesn't give the max value information so I left it aside as I only have Hue lights at home. I didn't want to bother with that until someone actually needs it... so now I can try to fix it :)

Howdy, I've made a first version of selector switch implementation, please let me know if it works for you! (it's already available on the public server if you want to do a quick test).

Cheers.

Nice work!
The list version is good, normal size choice.
Problem with the button version is that if you have for example 4 buttons the text is limited to 1 Letter
Maybe limit the button count to 4 and make a grid 2x2 rows/columns
If that is not possible I change the type to list in my setup. ;-)
Thanks

Had the same but just changed the width of the widget in Reacticz. Isn't that a good solution for you as well?

Yes, all widgets are spawned with the same size, but you can resize them at your convenience (by clicking the padlock and dragging the lower right corner of each widget)

I just want to say that I'm going to use Reacticz as my main day-to-day user interface on my tablets.

It is a great, simple, configurable and easy to use interface, especially for tablets and other touch-screen panels.

There are some things witch can improve, but I'm sure those will be taking care off.
And because of Reacticz I learn some more to use node.js.
I'm running it locally now on the Domoticz server in a separate directory in the WWW directory from Domoticz

Thanks ptitneo
