[RELEASE] X10 - lights (Domotica Commander)
#72
On a post a while ago (http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=924...stcount=43) I made a suggestion for an architecture that would easily support multiple system types and back-end apps. I know it would take some doing to re-architect the script but in the long run, it will make supporting & adding new systems 10x easier.

X10-Commander has very little intelligence, it is a UI for one specific back-end. If you want to enable multiple back-ends, and ease of use, I highly suggest you architect this to do so.

With the way you are proposing to do it...
Quote:http://192.168.0.10:8086/?x10command=DEVICE~sendplc~"A4 OFF"

... This command has no way to know what system is on the back-end, thus you can only use 1 back-end system, and it requires the user to remember exactly what A4 is.... this is far from ideal. Often, more than one back-end is used... I will be doing this since different apps/hardware bring different features I need.

If you create the proper architecture to handle multiple systems, the script would use commands that look something like this...

Quote:http://192.168.0.10:8086/?DEVICE="Kitchen+Lights","Off","100"

... this translates to 'Turn Kitchen Lights Off, 100%'.
... In the script each device would need to have a unique name (which is a best practice anyway) and thus system would parse the command line and translate/send to the proper back-end system, based on the definition files the user created.
I'm not an expert but I play one at work.
