Re: Recommended Languages - Big project

so what´s you choice at the end? python seems best fit rpi, for a long time. that´s there your native extensions need and will receive way more steadiness. doing things with nodejs is pretty hard on the pi, it takes a while to get native extensions like serial-port or gpio or even audio access ready...

Re: Recommended Languages - Big project

@heater nice post!
I agree, with Node.JS and some shell scripts you can be done in short time.
Database: sqlite,
For the recording, bash.
Reading,setting gpio, bash.
file operations, bash.

and overall sugar to glue all together, I´d even take Lua. smallest, fastest and more portable on the long run.

I will also add template to convert your Node.JS into a exe binary. I don't understand why anybody would want to do that. very simple: you can save around 90% disc space by cleaning a node.js package installation and put it all compressed into a binary. it also loads much faster than loading a few ...

@RPI mods: why can't we have a simple Wiki for PI ? Writing tutorials/manuals in a forum by using bb-code is a really odd nowadays. Its hard to find information, and difficult to update by other users.

Hi, I am trying to get some recommendations or best-practices together for deploying web-based applications, requiring at least a web-server and PHP but also Node-JS. My application requires all of them and I have a variant which pulls in PHP and Light-HTTP/Apache as dependencies specified in my 'de...

shell_exec is controlled by the php.ini under "disabled_functions" or so, not Apache. The php.ini is here: /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini but shell_exe isn't really disabled by the defaults on Raspberian. Possibly there is something else wrong. You can see disabled functions by running this: cat /etc/php...

there is also "pydio" which comes close to 'self-hosted' cloud or 'codiad' but both are quite heavy for the little RPI.
depends on what you really want. 'xamiro' however was designed for low-consumption on the server side.

can you try localhost instead of the IP ? That's usually the default in the NGINX settings. If you just need a file-manager and some editors/viewers, you can try ours which is PHP/JS based as well: www.xamiro.com or www.github.com/gbaumgart/xamiro .
