  • Tried to search for owfs in topics. I could guess I'm not the only one who wants to have owfs in Mango. To support owfs it is enouht to have file as data source. Is there currently some way to do the trick?

    owfs is filesystem for Dallas 1-wire. The devices appear as files under the filesystem. When reading file you can see the value eg. temperature or input state. The same way when you write to some output file it is set to the device. owfs supports "all" 1-wire devices. http://owfs.org/

    Same here, I have a Dallas USB dongle that isn't supported by Mango. So currently I use owfs and python to log data to mysql database and have Mango read it from there which is quite complicated.

    File datasource would be good for other uses too.

    For owfs it could be better to access owserver directly, protocol freely available at owfs.org. This could cut some overhead when owfs isn't needed.


  • Thanks for the idea. Your solution for 1-wire sounds intresting. I think i will use similar method. I have also USB dongle. An other problem is that I have thermocouples connected which are not supported with Mango.
