Status bar / Text feedback on dashboard


#1

Hey
I am working on a project that uses the cayenne app to connect my iPhone to a raspberry pi. A button on the app starts a program on my Pi. I would like to see the status of the program in text form on my dashboard e.g. Process started, process finished, error messages etc. I am looking for something, like a widget, that shows me a status, sent from my Pi. Is this possible? If yes, how can I do it using my Pi and the cayenne app.

currently this feature is not present but is on cayenne roadmap.

U could do it with cayenne api. You could convert the string to bytes or ints and send it to your app, where it converts to string again. When I have time I will try it

Thanks for the info. I am programming in python. Is it still possible to use Cayenne API? I would greatly appreciate an example.
