Sneak Peak: Remote config editor


#1

There is no release this week, but we are working on something interesting that I wanted to share.

Remote config editor

This config editor will provide ability to edit configuration in JSON editor directly from a browser by connecting to HomeHabit running on Android device over a local connection.

There are numerous benefits over existing text-based configuration. Platforms and dashboards created in the new editor will still be editable through UI, so you would be able to create dashboard in UI, play around a bit and then simply continue editing from a browser, if desired.
Also, since configuration is stored on device, it would easy to have separate dashboards for each device.

We are hoping to have an early experimental version available in the next release.
