Final Cleanup

GroG's picture

Ahoy !  First thanks for all the hard work, whether it was squashing bugs, or finding them, or testing to make sure they are gone.  We've done an amazing job of getting things ship shape before we go on our next release voyage.  If you have a github account you can see we've found and closed over 50+ bugs !!!


Remote Access to the Raspberry Pi 3 for NOOB'S

If you haven't already I suggest reading the Installing MRL on a Raspberry Pi3 for NOOB's
http://myrobotlab.org/content/installing-mrl-raspberry-pi-3-noobs
This tutorial is a continuation of that tutorial and assumes the raspberry Pi 3 is configured 
the same way as described in the above listed tutorial.
 

Remotely debugging the myrobotlab Java source code

Remotely debugging the myrobotlab Java source code

I want to have the facility to debug the myrobotlab Java source code for an instance of myrobotlab that runs on a remote device 

One scenario is to have myrobotlab running on a Raspberry Pi and then debug that instance with the Eclipse IDE running on a separate host (Windows laptop)

I have this working up to a point.

​I have this working now. See here

That's right, humans can now use and play with the service script at the bottom of every service page.

Ahoy! Great Picture of Our Illustrious Robot Gurus @ Eiffel Tower !  
Sipping coffee, and occasionally glancing at their mobiles for new build numbers, git issues and using octo-print remote to see if their latest part has printed.  :D

Service Matrix

We now have a working service matrix.  
The build now deploys the latest serviceData.json here

Master doesn't work because we haven't released yet

This script can save your life...

So, sometimes an arduino running mrlcomm will get away from you.  The best way to reset it is to toggle the serial port.  This resets the arduino that's connected and thus clearing the device list in mrlcomm.

Here's a small snippet of python code that will toggle the DTR pin and reset the arduino.

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat reset.py


InMoov.py - the "Service Page" script !!!

Ahoy !!
We've done a tonne of work !  Close 50+ bugs (https://github.com/orgs/MyRobotLab/projects/1)

But wait there's more !  ... We've made better documentation, now all our Services Pages which document our MRL building blocks have an auto-magically linked Python example at the bottom ... called "Examples"


Campaign for MyRobotLab on Wikipedia

Update: This document now open for anyone to edit...  

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HDlE8d--x1-A56Ff5mcQehE5togKtGt4yuuGIHVStgk/edit?usp=sharing  

 

so.. I see that there are 2 pages that point to MyRobotLab on wikipedia.

1.  the InMoov page : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InMoov

2. the open source robotics page : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_robotics
