Seeing wingnut’s problem today, it occured to me that Flightaware needs following enhancement:
While the microSD card is in Pi and powered up, open a Browser in your Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Phone, go to address
<ip of pi>/settings.html, and change/save settings including feeder-id. No SSH, no microSD card slipped into Desktop!
This is exactly what Flightradar24 have been using for a long time to change settings. Just go to page
<ip of pi>:8754/settings.html to change & save settings, and restart the data feeder, ALL from Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Phone’s browser! Please see “Save” and “Restart” buttons at bottom right of screenshot
Is it possible Flightaware also introduce something like this in Piaware?
Note: I have striked-out sharing key value in screenshot below for privacy reasons. FR24 uses sharing key same way as Flightaware uses UUID (feeder-id).
