Python 3 implementation of N0MJS HBmonitor for HBlink

This software is VERY, VERY, VERY new!

Since Python 3 is the way of the future, I'm updating the HBmonitor code from Python 2 to Python 3.


Questions, comments, and complaints can be forwarded to the DVSwitch group at DVSwitch - HBlink Subgroup

If you would like to contribute to this effort, please submit updated code as a PR to this repository.

Socket-Based Reporting for HBlink

Over the years, the biggest request recevied for HBlink (other than call-routing/bridging tools) has been web-based diagnostics and/or statistics for the program.

I strongly disagree with including the amount of overhead this would require inside HBlink -- which still runs nicely on very modest resources. That it does this, and is in Python is a point of pride for me... Just let me have this one, ok? What I have done is added some hooks to HBlink, which will be expanded over time, whereby it listens on a TCP socket and provides the raw data necessary for a "web dashboard", or really any external logging or statistics gathering program.

HBmonitor is my take on a "web dashboard" for HBlink.


Right now, I'm just getting into how this should work, what does work well, what does not... and I am NOT a web applications programmer, so yeah, that javascript stuff is gonna look bad. Know what you're doing? Help me!

It has now reached a point where folks who know what they're doing can probably make it work reasonably well, so I'm opening up the project to the public.


Some things I'm going to stick to pretty closely. Here they are:

  • HBmonitor be one process that includes a webserver
  • Websockets are used for pushing data to the browser - no long-polling, etc.
  • Does not provide data that's easily misunderstood
