Hi everyone, so it is exactly what the title says! If you’re not familiar with the ORAC, I suggest you start here.
Many people love using ORAC (I am one of them, thanks, Mark!) but I had some hassle setuping clients so I thought it’s a good chance to do a standalone web application to make ORAC even more accessible. With help from the awesome Blokas guys I think the result is worth sharing with the public:
It runs on the rPi, next to the ORAC, so all you need is a web browser essentially.
Currently tested on Patchbox OS
SSH to your Pi and run:
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dsedleckas/orac-control-web/master/install-orac-control-web.sh | sh
If you’re stuck on loading screen, make sure ORAC module is activated and
mec.service is running. If not, run
patchbox module config.
Save as an app on your phone
If your Pi always has the same Ip address (e.g. you’re connecting to Pi’s WiFi network and accessing
http://172.24.1.1:8080), you could save the page as an app to your home screen. For example, on Chrome, once opened, click tripple dots and Add to Home screen. Launching application this way will open it in landscape mode and fullscreen instantly.
Interface should be familiar to any ORAC user before - page/module navigation at the top and parameter controlls below. One change that was made involves menu navigation - Activate button was dropped - instead just tap/click on the wanted item. To scroll the menu (i.e. see more items in the list), you still have to use up/down buttons.
I hope you find it useful and I’d appreciate any comments/suggestions/bug reports here or on the GitHub.
Happy music making!
