I “finally” read something about OSC.
a) It is and always will be stateless.
This means, forget that I said Websocket…REST would be enough
b) It doesn’t have a “query-system”. Whatever they mean, but I don’t see a return mechanism.
Hence no option for us to query the list of all snapshots etc.
Rgd. touchscreen vs iPad. Valid point. But either way. A web-enabled application should be the UI.
If you want to hook a second screen, we could run a local browser on this second screen. The Raspi could handle this?
Now I see a REST interface, which handles input the OSC-way in addition to a query part.
We would create our own tornado/python web page which gives us all zynthian-ui can do and more.
And in addition a browser, who can run this new webpage or the webconf and routes to the HDMI-DISPLAY.
Is that possible?
And we need to wiki page where we can start the specification for the REST/OSC interface.
