This directory contains the mppt_dashboard xojo project, built binaries for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and a user manual. Xojo is a commercial cross-platform development tool I use for rapid application development. It requires a license in order to spit out compiled binaries but it has a demo mode that allows you to build and run an application from within the IDE without a license.
Installing and running pre-built binaries
Builds directory contains the pre-compiled binaries for x86-64 Linux, OS X and Windows. The easiest way to install the application is to copy the architecture-specific sub-directory into the install location. Running it is slightly platform-specific.
The application is compiled for 64-bit systems supporting a graphic user interface such as Mint, Ubuntu or Debian.
First make sure the binary,
mppt_dashboard, is executable with the appropriate permissions for the logged in user.
```chmod 755 mppt_dashboard```
Then the program may be started, either from a command line in a terminal or usually by double-clicking it from a file viewer.
Mac OS X
The application should appear as a proper Macintosh application bundle that can be started by double-clicking the bundle icon. There are both 32- and 64-bit versions.
The application is compiled as both a 32- and 64-bit version.
Use the file viewer to descend into the
mppt_dashboard folder and then double-click the
mppt_dashboard.exe file to start the application.
