Remote Control Robot

Requirements

  • Flask
  • SQLAlchemy
  • flask-sqlalchemy
  • psycopg2
  • gunicorn
  • flask-socketio
  • eventlet

Implementation

  • Flask (+Postgres) backend with AngularJs (+Bootstrap) frontend
  • Communication between the backend and admin page is via websockets (Socket.IO) giving real time updates
  • Simple tests are implemented in test.py which validate expected behaviours.

Run locally

The socket implementation can be run with gunicorn or directly. To run from the command line use:

python app.py

Or:

gunicorn --worker-class eventlet -w 1 app:app

Heroku

A Procfile is included to run the app on a Heroku instance.

To set up your own named instance use:

heroku login
heroku git:remote -a [instance]   # Add the heroku remote
git push heroku master        # Push up the current code
heroku ps:scale web=1

To set up the database add a Postgres database (Hobby Dev level) to your instance using the Heroku interface. This should automatically add the DATABASE_URL setting to your config variables (see Settings -> Config Variables) if unsure. The database URL should be in postgres:// format.

To create initial database tables run Python on the Heroku instance.

heroku run python

Then in the interpreter create database tables as follows:

from app import db
db.create_all()

Access your instance at http://[instance].herokuapp.com
