Re: SendtoHTTP argv limit (exceeded!)

Oh! 80 would definitely be rather small for HTTP requests. Should I raise an issue on github to request a larger value?

Multiple timers running simultaneously?

Hi All, I assume that one reason for having 8 separate timers, is that one can have them running simultaneously to cause things to happen at different intervals. However, it's not working for me if so. In my boot code, I set two timers: T1 @ 5secs to update a displayed sensor value and T3 @ 60 secs ...

Re: Rules being truncated after editing

As far as I can tell - and I have several devices running it - the 20180519-TEST version doesn't have this problem. I've just loaded the older version on the first module that had the truncation problem with the July version and so far, so good. Maybe that will help to isolate the cause.

Re: Question: Exposing ESPEasy to the internet without exposing the front-end?

I wouldn't expose the ESP at all, the things have no security capability. You could do something with a captive portal / proxy on your firewall if it has that facility, which could restrict the URLs that can be called and hide the ESP from the internet by forwarding the traffic transparently. There'...

Re: Connecting a TM1637 4-Digit Display

Which builds are the new commands available in, @papperone? I'm running 20180718-TEST; it doesn't recognise '7dtext' as valid... do I need to pick up a nightly dev build?

Rules being truncated after editing

Hi, I have a problem with rules. I entered a rule, which was around 1900 characters long, within the 2k limit. It seemed ok for a while, but after a time and a few edits, it was suddenly truncated by the system to 1471 characters, cutting it off in mid-code. I've had this happen on two different mod...

SendtoHTTP argv limit (exceeded!)

Hi All, What is the maximum length of the argument string to SendtoHTTP and is there a way to handle larger strings? I'm finding that my sensor isn't sending data to my Vera controller and I've tried a number of approaches with no success. Finally, in one run I spotted something flash by in the log,...

Rules, string parsing and serialsend

Hi All, I'm looking at the way strings are handled by the serialsend command. I thought I would be able to escape tabs, newlines and the like and also to encode non-printable characters as \xAA, but everything I try to send is just sent exactly as typed, no parsing. I'm experimenting with trying to ...

Re: Timer problem a- and how to flash a GPIO LED easily

Grovkillen, I have studied the wiki! I've read the entire rules tutorial from top to bottom several times and looked at the examples. I wouldn't be asking here if I hadn't. I'm asking because I can't see anything wrong and I've used similar syntax in other cases, where it works; this case has me puz...

Timer problem a- and how to flash a GPIO LED easily

Hi All, I've a problem with a timer not working. I think the code is ok, but maybe I've looked at it for too long now and I'm missing something really silly! I've simplified it down to a very minimal piece of code, which still doesn't work, and I've tried it on two different ESP boards. I can't work...

Re: Rules if-then-else and fall-through

Cracked it :-) I thought that my logic block was too much for the parser, but in fact it was partly my logic at fault... incrementing the counter in each "if" block was silly because the next block then had the right conditions to run. With multiple "if" blocks, that's not clever. D'oh! :lol: So, he...

Rules if-then-else and fall-through

I over-estimated what the rules parser was capable of and found an interesting effect that could cause problems if one were to make a mistake by leaving out an else or endif... this doesn't feel like intentional behaviour and isn't logical, so it may need some work to stop it happening. I wrote: on ...

Re: Connecting a TM1637 4-Digit Display

Hi, Papperone, I'd like to create a bit more flexibility in what the plugin can display on the 7-segment modules, to allow for some alpha characters (I want to be able to indicate an error condition and loss of wifi, that sort of thing... Err, dISc, Off, ...) I was thinking of copying the plugin and...
