Redirection... Around the corner... (Singing and Skipping)

Hey, just a heads up...

I have a new plugin almost ready for prime time...

Here's a quick blurb...

So you have Indigo Pro, why not use the Indigo web server interface for more than just an occasional glance of your home automation?

Before you say something like, how can I do that? All it's good for, is controlling my home automation...

Well, maybe before the Redirection plugin, you would have been right...

But now, with the Redirection plugin, you can create a web portal device in Indigo, and assign a "IWS Path", and a URL to redirect to. When the IWS plugin sees the web URL, it will create a iframe and embed the URL you wanted into that iframe.

So, you can use Indigo to act as a portal for other web resources.

But, wait a second your saying, why can't I just make a control page, that has a button leading to a web resource. You can, but you have to create control page, layout the buttons, and put more effort into it to create the web link.

So redirection plugin is quicker, simpler, and easier... But unlike a control page, you do not have a fancy GUI appearance...

1) If the user goes to http://*indigoserver*/redirection, they will receive a listing of all the redirections, with live web links.. So, you don't need to create a separate control page... (These links do not use iframes)

2) To have a iframe created, the link would be http://*indigoserver*/Redirection/?url=*IWS PATH*

So for example, I have a google search shortcut setup with a IWS Path of "Google", and a redirection to "http://www.google.com". The URL would be:

http://127.0.0.1:8176/Redirection/?url=google

Suggestions, comments and concerns are welcome. I expect to have a beta out shortly...

Re: Redirection... Around the corner... (Singing and Skipp

Is this plugin compatible with the current version of Indigo?

If it is, would the iFrame allow publication of things control pages don't usually support, like MJPEG streams or whatever EvoCam's default video stream is?

It should be, and shouldn't cause any harm to your indigo install.

It was tested with Indigo 6, if memory serves me correctly... But if you run into any issues, let me know and I'll take a look at updating it.

That dropbox link is dead.
