Background Images

In the plan view, it is possible to add your own background image. Up until now that has been a bit messy to do that, since you have had to manually put the background image file in the correct media directory of the OpenNetHome-server and then edit the Plan item to set it.

Now I have added a media image view under settings, where it is easy to upload new background images from the GUI. When you set the Plan-view in edit mode you can select any of the uploaded files from a drop down menu.
The changes are in the nightly build.


The power of open source

I have been a bit lazy with blogging lately, but I will try to make it up...
During the last month, the project has received two contributions of new functions to the server!

  • Jari Särkkä has added an integration with Python script language, so it is possible to write actions and functions in Python for HomeItems
  • Peter Lagerhem has added functions to write log data from HomeItems to an SQL-database instead of text files which speeds up the graphs and makes it easier to process and access log data from other programs.
I will be writing more about both contributions in blogs to come when I have added some more documentation, but this is a real proof of the benefits of open source, when people can share their efforts and features. Thanks a lot both of you!
