Here in Switzerland, the population is currently not formally confined, but all the schools and all the non-essentials shops are closed, meetings of more than 5 people are forbidden. Borders are closed as well, unless you have a truly valid reason to cross them, and the population is strongly encouraged to stay at home. If you read this post, you are either bored senseless at home, or you wonder how Yoctopuce is handling this unprecedented crisis.
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.
