Daemon Console

Post by pferland » Tue Sep 08, 2009 8:34 am

Another small addition,
The ability to see what the daemon is outputting to the screen on the web!
Ok so its not really that exciting, but it is kind of neat though.

What was needed was to redirect the screen output of the daemon to a log file.
Then a symbolic link was placed in the wifidb folder that points to the log file.
The Console page scrapes this file and formats it so that it looks like you are
looking at the console of the server.

There is three options on the page,

Refresh: choose of often to update the page.
Scroll: go to the end of the console page, or keep it at the top
History: View all lines or only the last 10.
