New Tutorial on writing drivers


niall

Recommended Posts

Hiya,

 

I wanted to write some drivers for my system, but found the info out there was a bit hard to get started with.

 

So I decided to write a bit of a guide to get people started, also contains a driver for twilio (online sms service) that I wrote.

 

I'll be updating as I write some more drivers, but for now any feedback is appreciated.

 

The tutorial is here:

Hope its useful for someone.

 

thanks,

It was done with v2.0.1, didn't realise there was a v3.0.0.

 

Maybe try with that version, the drivers that are produced are all the same as they are just text files.

Not sure what features 3.0.0 gives you to help.

3.0 gives you new proxies and a whole new gui and packaging

they dont seem to support templates in v3.0, i copy the content from v2 to v3 and nothing is available.

Correct.

 

2.X templates are for 2.X only.

 

FYI, 3.0 currently only supports building .c4z files, so is only applicable to building drivers for 2.6 and later, while 2.x should still be used for creating .c4i files, for older versions of Control4's OS.
