Xenna Posted March 14, 2012 at 09:10 AM Share Posted March 14, 2012 at 09:10 AM I have three questions/suggestions: 1. You support quite a few languages, but unfortunately my favorites aren't there. Are you planning any support for Perl and PHP? Especially on the Linux platform there are lots of programmers using these two. PHP would be great for web integration. 2. I understand that the API's talk TCP to a brickd daemon. It's easy to do TCP connections in (almost?) any language, so if the brickd TCP protocol is documented we could use that instead of the API. (or write our own API) 3. There are standards for talking to hardware via the filesystem in Linux (/sys/class or /proc). Have you considered using these? That way controlling bricks and bricklets could be as easy as: echo 1 > /sys/class/bricklets/dualrelay1 echo "Hello world" > /sys/class/bricklets/lcd1/line1 Or reading as easy as: cat /sys/class/bricklets/analog1 It's not so easy to do events this way, but for simple polling or controlling this would do very nicely. You would immediately have added support to every language available on the Linux platform. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
