Nice one. Try using Laserweb for machine/laser control. v2.laserweb.com
Ariel that was the first thing i tried. We tried installing on a netbook, PC laptop, Raspberry PI and the netbook with Ubuntu (Serial port driver issue) and could not get it to install and run. Any tips on installing and getting it up and running?
V2 does not require to install anything but serial communication. So go install SPJS GitHub - chilipeppr/serial-port-json-server: Serial Port JSON Server is a websocket server for your serial devices. It compiles to a binary for Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, or BeagleBone Black that lets you communicate with your serial port from a web application. This enables web apps to be written that can communicate with your local serial device such as an Arduino, CNC controller, or any device that communicates over the serial port. and then visit testv2.laserweb.xyz go to setting out your IP of the pc connected to the PI and you are done.
