ChiliPeppr Workspace / Texterator

All ChiliPeppr workspaces/widgets/elements are defined using cpdefine() which is a method that mimics require.js. Each defined object must have a unique ID so it does not conflict with other ChiliPeppr objects.

Example Code for chilipeppr.load() Statement

You can use the code below as a starting point for instantiating this workspace from ChiliPeppr's Edit Boot Script dialog box. The key is that you need to load your workspace inlined into the standard #pnlWorkspace div so the DOM can parse your HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Then you use cprequire() to find your workspace's Javascript and get back the instance of it to init() it.

// This code should be pasted into the ChiliPeppr Edit Boot Javascript dialog box
// located in the upper right corner of any chilipeppr.com page.
// The ChiliPeppr environment has a standard div called #pnlWorkspace that
// this workspace should be loaded into.
chilipeppr.load(
  "#pnlWorkspace",
  "http://raw.githubusercontent.com/chilipeppr/workspace-texterator/master/auto-generated-workspace.html",
  function() {
    // Callback after workspace loaded into #pnlWorkspace
    // Now use require.js to get reference to instantiated workspace
    cprequire(
      ["inline:com-zipwhip-workspace-texterator"], // the id you gave your workspace
      function(myComZipwhipWorkspaceTexterator) {
        // Callback that is passed reference to the newly loaded workspace
        console.log("Workspace / Texterator just got loaded.", myComZipwhipWorkspaceTexterator);
        myComZipwhipWorkspaceTexterator.init();
      }
    );
  }
);

Publish

This workspace publishes the following signals. These signals are owned by this workspace and are published to all objects inside the ChiliPeppr environment that listen to them via the chilipeppr.subscribe(signal, callback) method. To better understand how ChiliPeppr's subscribe() method works see amplify.js's documentation at http://amplifyjs.com/api/pubsub/

Signal Description
(No signals defined in this workspace)

Subscribe

This workspace subscribes to the following signals. These signals are owned by this workspace. Other objects inside the ChiliPeppr environment can publish to these signals via the chilipeppr.publish(signal, data) method. To better understand how ChiliPeppr's publish() method works see amplify.js's documentation at http://amplifyjs.com/api/pubsub/

Signal Description
(No signals defined in this workspace)

Foreign Publish

This workspace publishes to the following signals that are owned by other objects. To better understand how ChiliPeppr's subscribe() method works see amplify.js's documentation at http://amplifyjs.com/api/pubsub/

(No signals defined in this workspace)

Foreign Subscribe

This workspace publishes to the following signals that are owned by other objects. To better understand how ChiliPeppr's publish() method works see amplify.js's documentation at http://amplifyjs.com/api/pubsub/

Signal Description
/com-zipwhip-workspace-texterator/com-chilipeppr-elem-dragdrop/ondragoverThe Chilipeppr drag drop element will publish on channel /com-chilipeppr-elem-dragdrop/ondropped when a file is dropped so we subscribe to it so we can load a Gcode file when the user drags it onto the browser. It also adds a hover class to the bound DOM elem so we can add a CSS to hilite on hover
/com-zipwhip-workspace-texterator/com-chilipeppr-elem-dragdrop/ondragleaveWe need to know when the drag is over to remove the CSS hilites.
/com-zipwhip-workspace-texterator/com-chilipeppr-widget-gcode/resizeWe watch if the Gcode viewer resizes so that we can reposition or resize other elements in the workspace. Specifically we ask the Serial Port Console to resize. We also redraw the 3D Viewer so it fills the whole screen.

About ChiliPeppr

ChiliPeppr is a hardware fiddle, meaning it is a website that lets you easily create a workspace to fiddle with your hardware from software. ChiliPeppr provides a Serial Port JSON Server that you run locally on your computer, or remotely on another computer, to connect to the serial port of your hardware like an Arduino or other microcontroller.

You then create a workspace at ChiliPeppr.com that connects to your hardware by starting from scratch or forking somebody else's workspace that is close to what you are after. Then you write widgets in Javascript that interact with your hardware by forking the base template widget or forking another widget that is similar to what you are trying to build.

ChiliPeppr is massively capable such that the workspaces for TinyG and Grbl CNC controllers have become full-fledged CNC machine management software used by tens of thousands.

ChiliPeppr has inspired many people in the hardware/software world to use the browser and Javascript as the foundation for interacting with hardware. The Arduino team in Italy caught wind of ChiliPeppr and now ChiliPeppr's Serial Port JSON Server is the basis for the Arduino's new web IDE. If the Arduino team is excited about building on top of ChiliPeppr, what will you build on top of it?
