Looks much better..... will download the latest and greatest this afternoon.

Now... I'm going to sound like my wife here, but I personally find the meter displays way too dark for my taste. I bet you rolled your eyes on that comment!

Anyway, down the road when you get most of the bugs out, think about updating the meter displays to something brighter like what Graham has in his Android app.

I'm always impressed with people that can talk in ones and zeros. It took me three hours to get the LED on my Arduino to blink!

mike

Hahaha you make me laugh. I am planing to give support for light and dark mode later. I personally, like dark better, is easy on my eyes.

I was looking for different gauges libraries for Swift and there's no lots of it, so i am pretty sure in the future i am gonna need my own implementation to make it fit our needs.

When I was younger, I could watch a flea on a wall scratch its nose from across the room.

I no longer can see the flea, and sometimes the wall is a bit blurry.

All kidding aside, the older we get the more light our eyes require.

I can still do the 1206 SMD footprint with my naked eyes, but the smaller SMD devices are going to require a microscope for me to do.

Again, thanks for the app and will tinker with the latest one this afternoon.

Oh yeah I am getting to that :)

This is what I am thinking, that would help? Kind of a poll to see if I am in the right track

downloaded the latest version using my iPhone

I don't know, but I sure don't see what you put up as screen shots.

I don't have the consumption page, and as a matter of fact, i only have one page,

and the text of the meters is overtop of the values being displayed
as soon as I figure out how to do a screen shot on the iPhone I'll upload it

Oh yes, the Modbus part still not have the consumption part implemented yet. There are two modes in the app. Modbus and MQTT (using the implementation by Graham).

You are in the correct version, yesterday i was working to add the same screens but to the Modbus part.

Sorry for the confusion

Sounds like a plan.

here's the screen shot from the iPhone

Notice the text in the meter's faces are over the text of the meter i.e. battery is over top of the numbers

Oh perfect mike! What device do you have? Those texts needs to adjust to the size of the screen accordingly.

Did you check this? That's the plan with light and dark mode I have in mind to implement (like the idea of the gauge lib I am using). let me know what you think if I am in the correct track

Urayoan,

Awesome on the iOS app, I do not have an iPhone either, but I know plenty who do. I am not sure if you can handle this, but I often use ngrok to tunnel my Classic's port 502 outside my firewall. This is a real necessity if you are using a cellular link to your system, as most cellular carriers block all incoming requests (unless you pay an arm and a leg) making the usual "opening" a port in your firewall non-functional. The issue is that the URL that is forwarded to your Classic's port 502 looks something like this: tcp://0.tcp.ngrok.io:12345. We have had trouble in the past with other apps and utilities being able to handle a port number that is 5 digits long. You may want to make sure that your app can handle a url like that and a port number that is 5 digits long.

Matt


After a small reading I realized that the ngrok configuration is not that hard, so i tested with my Classic from the outside and can confirm, the six digit port works fine with Modbus.

When i entered the host, I omitted the tcp:// part in tue host in my app. Just wrote the host as it is.

Thanks for the heads up
@Urayoan

Mike, new update, now the screens in the modbus side should show soc and consumption. I made some changes to the screens, now should show better the info and adjust better too

Installed the newest upgrade

looks much better, and like I said, I don't care for the dark meters, but that's just me

the text appears to clear the numbers now

I did notice the 'power' number changes without the voltage or current values changing. I suppose its reading data that the meters are updating.

Poll!

Want to know what version of iOS do you have in you iOS device. Includes iPad models too. If version is 10.3 for example, it is included in the 10 version of the poll.

Thanks!
