Working on a Add Device Page
I'm still working on it, no fancy stuff yet. Though I got most of the PHP is working(Only part to be done is changing the actual config file instead of a fake one).

It uses pilight-receive a bit of html and the rest is php.


What do you guys think of it? Also what would be the best practise to change the config file? Stop service -> change config -> start service?
It would be ofc best if you could help me implement this in plain jQuery. If you are willing to, i can add the API for it so we can edit the config on the fly.
@curlymo i currently working on an ionic app and it would be nice if there would be an api for this.
What's an ionic app?
@curlymo http://ionicframework.com/

Could you add a API pilight-receive? The way I'm doing it now, requires www-date to have access to all of sudo without password. Then access the user pi and runs the command "timeout 5 pilight-receive".

The way I'm doing it now is complicated and is horribly insecure, also the output of pilight-receive is not valid json because it contains multiple root elements. In order to work with this invalid json I'm scraping it with reg-ex which also isn't the best way to go.

I was looking for a API along the following lines:

    "message": "pilight-receive",
        "time": "5"

and maybe to add a device to the config something like this:

    "message": "add-device",
    "protocol": "kaku_switch",
    "code": {
        "id": 1234,
        "unit": 0,

Last question, on what IRC server is the #pilight channel?
There already is a pilight-receive API. Check the pilight-receive source code.
