Update MiniMad over network?

Postby ProjectileObjects » Thu Dec 15, 2016 11:41 pm

I noticed that if the MiniMad is plugged into a network that you can access it through SSH (thanks to splash screen change in previous thread). Is there going to be a future option to update the MiniMad card and content over ethernet in a future version?

Thanks, just curious.

It's possible to export to miniMAD through LAN, that's actually the way I'm using it for development and testing.
As for the splashscreen it's a bit hacky but it may turn to a proper feature in the future.

First, the miniMAD must be running and connected through ethernet to the same network as your computer so you can access it through SSH (the miniMAD IP-address appears on top left of the screen when pressing YELLOW while holding BLUE).

Let's assume your miniMAD is started and its IP-address is 192.168.1.12

- In the Terminal

copy/paste/edit the following line to kill the miniMAD application:
ssh pi@192.168.12 "sudo killall -9 mad_raspi"
(type "raspberry" when asked for a password)

- In the Finder

press Cmd+K to bring the "Connect to Server" window.
copy/paste the following line in the "Server Address:" input-box:
afp://pi@192.168.1.12
(type "raspberry" when asked for a password)

Your miniMAD's "MINIMAD" volume should now be accessible on your Mac.

When opening the "export to miniMAD" dialog in MadMapper, and you should see the miniMAD's SD-card available for export.
You can now export your mapping the same way you usually do.

- Back to the Terminal

copy/paste/edit the following line to to reboot the miniMAD, hopefully playing your new mapping:
ssh pi@192.168.12 "sudo reboot"
(type "raspberry" when asked for a password)

Thanks for that Pierre!
Great to see that there is a way to do it.
Hopefully this could be implemented to MadMapper in the near future :)
