Browser requirements?


#1

Are there any browser requirements for Rockpool? I’ve not installed any browsers over and above the basic Jessie install, so Midori is used when I launch Rockpool, but I get no messages about connecting to Flotilla, just three labels: Inputs, Converters and Outputs.

All works fine when I run through the network from a PC using Internet Explorer, just can’t get it to work properly on the Pi alone.

Can you see the ‘Enter IP, Connect’ box? If not try to key in 127.0.0.1:8000 in the browser address bar.


#3

err ignore that I don’t think that would force-connect to port 8000 on the localhost.

… I’ve just installed Midori and I can confirm it’s not looking good. Both Epiphany and Iceweasel are working here. Hope that helps.


#4

All of the work done to date is targeting Epiphany on the Raspberry Pi (it’s the fastest browsing experience available on Pi).


#5

Thanks - all working now. Next job - work out why WebKitWebProcess is using so much memory and CPU!


#6

If it helps, I found some pretty significant inefficiencies in the redrawing of nodes in Rockpool rules, and have tweaked it for the next major release. This will be counter-balanced by a huge new graph history that gives you a much nicer view on what’s going on in the system.

My experience with iOS (iPhone 5S):

  • Chrome : Not good, page loads but crashes upon clicking things
  • Safari : Seems to work ok

And also supports the built-in tilt sensor :D
