General modules Discussion

Recommended Posts

Looking at the modules available already, what's the correct way to add them to my Nano running firmware 1.0.1? I'm new to Pineapple, and whilst I'm learning how it all works, some of them look as if they'd be really useful- at the moment Cabinet looks very useful. Do I grab the necessary files from Github and drop them into a specific folder on the Nano, or is there more to it than that?

Cheers.

Wondering the same thing :(

As already said, modules already ported can't be installed on the NANO for the moment as the nano hasn't been released for general consumption yet, it's in the dev kit launch phase. The modules will be available then in the Modules Manager on the NANO.

How do you and other coders have modules then? It's not like by teaching us how to copy and paste we become superior :3 It's just a friendly question. Dev-kit or not, shouldnt prevent the use of modules.

You are right - and it does not. Module Developers have gotten early access to the device and are coding them up. They could share (and some have) their code, which can then be copied into the /pineapple/modules folder, but not everyone chooses to do that (because they may not be ready for that yet, or depend on features not yet released to the public).

An update will be out this week which should include the Module Manager. Then it will just be a short matter of time for developers to submit their modules to us and for us to make them available.

Once that is done, I'm going to have time to publish documentation for other developers to start creating modules.

Cheers Seb, I can wait for the FW release, I was just wondering where I'd drop the modules via command line; just wanting to learn how the Nano ticks

I did not want to be mean to you. That's said, modules are installed on /pineapple/modules/

And in the meantime, modules code available such as API Tokens can be downloaded and therefore installed in the path mentioned above.

It will in an upcoming firmware update. Some have already been ported. Check the nano modules subforum to see which ones

Yeah, the anticipation is KILLING ME!!! The "week" is just about up. I hope I get to sip some 1.0.2 Pineapple Juice before I crash for the night!

I just want to insist that devs don't have any obligations regarding the modules, neither any of us gave a release date. We provide them free of charge for the community, and we take time outside our full time job.

So yes we know that everybody is waiting but if you don't want to wait, you can developp your own modules and give them back to the community.

I have to agree with Whistle Master.

Additionally, the API has changed from previous versions of the MK. The new interface uses AngularJS and this is new for some as myself. We are doing this for fun, to learn something new and at the same time give something back to the community.

I was wondering if it was possible to put the modules that have been released onto a usb stick and use them because i think i have a bad SD Card and I want to find out for sure. I already have the USB stick formated and mounted ready to go.

Thanks

To put the modules in the USB it would take some configuration at the OpenWRT level, and then it would require you to update the module manager to reference the /USB instead of /SD path. This I would consider the correct way.

You can try shortcut it, but getting openwrt to consider your usb as /sd. You'll have to do some research as I don't have the notes for doing this handy.

You could try mounting it as /usb, then soft-linking it to /sd. Not sure if it would work though.

Maybe "ln -s /sd /usb" would work.

I think the nano doesn't have a USB option because its designed to rely on the SD card, the nano being small form-factor and all, I think the primary use case for the USB port would be your phone or a USB radio.

Hello,

I am having problems with a new sdcard i just bought... 32 GB and 80 MB/s.

I am able to download the modules to my sdcard... it is written "Succesfully downloaded" but I do not see them on my GUI...

They are on the sdcard but not the GUI.

Thank you

I really need help
