Edger General Meeting Sept 20, 2023

We sent out notices for this but will try to get a posting up more than a few hours before the next one! As usual the meeting will be both online and face to face at the Forge Initiative in Apex, NC. We expect to get a recording of this meeting onto YouTube with a link that will be here.

Here is the agenda:

  1. Hellos, introductions and announcements
  2. Review of current version 0.1.0 Edger features
    • Aardvark
    • Ant web API access from Python
  3. Review of some of the upcoming features for version 0.2.0
    • Command line console via USB
    • Additional new features
  4. If time allows, discussion about what to use to augment Signal for communication and how to deploy it

Here are slides that will be shared at the meeting:

  1. Aardvark current behavior PDF
  2. Ant current web API and example Python script access PDF
  3. Rev 0.2.0 USB command line console interface to Ant PDF

Using Edger With Rev 2 Dev Board

With users switching to the new rev 2 “white board” development kit (described here) following the move of project files to https://github.com/TriEmbed/edger there is now a new end user oriented installation procedure. This is described below in great detail for the sake of users not familiar with Linux.

These instructions make use of a prototype Edger installer script tested with regular Ubuntu and Ubuntu Mate version 20.04. The instructions below were made with Ubuntu Mate.

Use the “prtscr” key to capture screen shots of problems and share them with Pete Soper and Carl Nobile by email or Signal to get help.
