NextionDriver Installer and Checker

This repository brings you 3 helper programs for the installation of NextionDriver when you do not want to do it by hand:

  • a program to install NextionDriver
  • a program to convert an existing MMDVMHost configuration file for using NextionDriver (this is called by the installer program)
  • a program to check the installation

install.sh

This is the installer program for NextionDriver.

I (and others) have tested it on some hotspots, but there are always much more situations and combinations than the ones we tested :-) (special thanks to Rob PD0DIB for his feedback)

The installer runs the configuration convertor program for automatically converting the MMDVM.ini file to incorporate NextionDriver.

NextionDriver_ConvertConfig

You could just run it (NextionDriver_ConvertConfig) if you installed NextionDriver by hand, but it also will be called when you run the installer !

check_installation.sh

When you have installed the NextionDriver, this programs tries to check the MMDVMHost and NextionDriver configuration.
The program then gives a lot of information about the installation of the NextionDriver and if it seems to be OK or not.
