goregen is the web remote control interface for your
Everyone's welcome to chat about the project or get live help from the team.
Before being able to connect to your Regenbox, you're gonna need arduino drivers.
Refer to the drivers section for detailed instructions on how to do so.
Download latest release for your OS / architecture at the releases page
or via go get
You can download from source using
go get, if you're familiar with it.
go get -v github.com/solar3s/goregen
After drivers are installed and you downloaded your
goregen release, the next step
is to upload the file
firmware.ino into the Arduino of your Regenbox.
Once again refer to firmware section for detailed instructions.
If you have proper driver installed & the firmware installed, open a terminal to the extracted folder
goregen which should output something like this:
rkj@rkdeb:/tmp/goregen$ ./goregen 2017/06/21 12:51:33 using config file: /tmp/goregen/config.toml 2017/06/21 12:51:33 trying "/dev/ttyUSB0"... 2017/06/21 12:51:33 connected to "/dev/ttyUSB0" in 404.825718ms 2017/06/21 12:51:33 starting conn watcher (poll rate: 1s) 2017/06/21 12:51:33 starting webserver on http://localhost:3636 ...

You need to modify it using a text editor with appropriate values where needed, restart of
goregen is required
for reloading configuration.

hardware side, please refer to the drivers section
rkj@rkdeb:~/go/src/github.com/solar3s/goregen$ ./goregen -h Usage of ./goregen: -assets string restore static assets to provided directory & exit -config string path to config (defaults to <root>/config.toml) -data string path to data directory (defaults to <root>/data) -dev string path to serial port, if empty it will be searched automatically -log string path to logs directory (defaults to <root>/log) -root string path to goregen's main directory (defaults to executable path) -v higher verbosity -version print version & exit
The project is oh-so-young and needs help from everyone. Testing and documenting comes to mind, in the wiki section for example which needs love, feedback and evolution with the project. Any form of contribution to the code-base is also definitely welcome, for now no specifics are in place but usual guidelines apply.
