New
Progressing with simple openHAB Experiments.
Exploring openHAB as an alternative Home Automation solution (curently using Domoticz).
One of the experiments, BMP180, uses a simple B4J non-UI program to obtain Temperature & Pressure data from the BMP180 sensor. The program is executed using the openHAB Exec Binding.

Testing Visual Studio Code with openHAB extension, to remote edit the openHAB configuration files.
Define the remote folder in Windows explorer (\\192.168.N.NN\openhab-conf), start VSCode and open the remote folder. The structure is listed and ready to create new or change configuration files.

Raspberry Pi Desktop
Installed Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop on an old vaio.
Quite interesting as been using so many years Windows (up-to latest version 10) ... lets see how this goes when using a bit more.

ABMaterial
Example application SBrick control Lego Power Function running on a Raspberry Pi.
The application uses an SBrick. The communication between the Raspberry Pi and the SBrick is via Bluetooth. The ABMaterial Custom Component noUiSlider has been enhanced.

Homepage Migration
  • Registration is not enabled.Need to complete migration first.
  • Find a way to import the many B4J HowTos instead of adding manually. Workaround by generating the B4J HowTos from Look4How.
  • Develop a tool to create a booklet for a selected forum or topic.
