openLuup: Extensions plugin
« on: November 02, 2015, 10:33:59 am »

This is a new plugin - move the files to /etc/cmh-ludl/ and install with:

Code: [Select]
luup.create_device ('', '', nil, "D_openLuupExtensions.xml")
... or use the +Create button on the AltUI interface (which works now! - thanks @amg0)

The philosophy here is that openLuup itself should remain as true as possible to standard Vera functionality.  That way we can ensure that most plugins written for Vera run also under openLuup.   HOWEVER...  now having gained the freedom to make improvements, the Extensions plugin is going to add extra facilities over time.

At the moment, it does very little:
  • front panel display shows system uptime and memory usage
  • similar data can be read from device variables (and used as device variable watch triggers or pushed to ThingSpeak)
  • a few actions have been implemented, more will come.  At the moment you can set StartupCode and ShutdownCode

A feature to come soon (hopefully) is the ability to upgrade openLuup itself from the GitHub repository in much the same way as the AltUI update works now.
