Helios is comprised of a web client and API server:
Note: The API server is not necessary to run when working on the client. A mock server will be spun up automatically if an API server is not run.
Helios will compile all of the assets into a
release folder in the root of the repo, containing the compiled
server binary and static assets.
Deploying to Frontdoor Pi
To deploy to the internal instance of helios, run the task while on the same network as Helios is connected to.
IMPORTANT If you need to restart your Pi, be sure to reboot the helios service once the current time is available. This is required for slack functionality to work correctly.
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org sudo systemctl restart helios.service
This will be fixed in future versions.
Working with the PI
Sometimes it's necessary to run commands manually on the pi.
SSH into the pi.
Restart the helios service:
sudo systemctl restart helios.service
Turn the projector on and off:
echo "on 0" | cec-client -s #on
echo "standby 0" | cec-client -s #off
Add a developer's public key for deploy commands:
gh-auth add --users=<github_username>
