API spec for config pages
« on: April 02, 2022, 01:41:38 pm »
Is there an API spec or a way of emulating the config pages for a PAW unit?

I’m think of knocking together an IOS short cut that sends a http post request to change settings on the PAW unit. Specifically things like setting volume or changing range.

Would be nice to develop this at home without having to extricate my PAW from plane p

I have been developing a new front end with similar functionality ios/android. I realised that as well as any changes made to the paw web interface I would need to maintain it separately.

I have opted to show the existing web pages in separate tabs and let the PilotAware guys develop their interface.

I agree we could do with a volume/mute button, I did implement this myself, I am sure Lee would put this in at some stage.

The API is a moving target at the moment as new functionality is added, watch this space.

Care to share?
If it’s a better user interface that’s ok, but it’d also be nice to have single click ways of doing stuff.
At the moment, on iPad it’s fiddly - switch windows to browser, zoom in/scroll to volume setting, change volume, hit submit, change back to EFB.
Would be awesome to use iOS shortcuts as it’s a single press in task tray
