Mobile device + headless server Android or ios

Recommended Posts

Posted · Mobile device + headless server Android or ios

Hi,

After browsing the forum I feel it should be possible to install Cura on a headless server (docker?) And access it on my mobile device over local lan. I'm stuck on the UI bit. Does the docker image contain a UI that's accessible over a specific port?

 

Essentially id like something like Astroprint (slice only) on my own network.

My setup is as follows

Printer:                          DIY Cartesian 

Firmware:                      Klipper

Firmware Web server: DWC2

 

I've access to a pi 2 and a Ubuntu headless server on Windows HyperV

 

Essential I would love to slice an STL from my phone and upload the Gcode directly to my machine.

 

Cheers for any pointers.

D

Getting the engine to run on a server should not be too hard. But the engine doesn't do any of the clever things that the GUI does with the profiles.

So as long as you don't mind that you have to provide "flat" profiles (So a complete list of all settings as key value pairs), this is a strategy you could use.

Cheers for the reply. I figured it'd be something like that. Have you heard of anyone has an open source web UI that could work with it? I could probably manage to get it working via command line but I've no idea when it comes to UI stuff.
