One of our customers asked us how to install the VirtualHub on the Tiny Core Linux distribution. To be honest, we had never heard of this distribution, but we discovered that this distribution made interesting technical choices. Thus, we are going to show you how to install the VirtualHub, or your own application, on Tiny Core Linux.
Our command line library enables you to use all our modules from a terminal or in a shell script.
We have used this library several times to configure a module or perform a one-time task, but we noticed that we never yet spoke of another type of use: monitoring the values measured in a shell script.
We usually consider IP connection as a means to access Internet, but in fact it's quite possible to build networks which do not have outside connectivity. It's called non routable networks. They are useful, but they also introduce some difficulties. This week, we explain how to use Yoctopuce modules in a non routable network.
For already some time, we offer a software solution to connect remotely to your Yoctopuce hubs, even when they are behind a NAT filter: the GatewayHub. However that solution requires to setup an Internet-facing Web hosting with Node.js. Today we will show another different solution, which is not applicable to GSM hubs but can save the effort of setting up a public hosting. Its name is ngrok.
Yoctopuce serial communication modules are more than simple interfaces: they are able to query and analyze autonomously the data coming from any device to then present the results in the way of a Yoctopuce sensor and/or record them in the embedded data logger. But in order to do so, you must tell the Yoctopuce module how to manage the dialog with the device. So here are a few examples as a complement to the documentation, to make this task easier.
