Raspberry pi connects app

Thu Dec 06, 2018 5:27 am

Alright, i made a program that is like a parking, when one car comes, presses on a button and it revervs a parking place(it changes a led from green to red). My program has 3 places you can park. I want do make a mobile app so that you can rezerve a spot and also show you what places are already parked and how many available.

What program can i use so i can make this . I know how to program in python.

As you know python I would go with flask on the pi, then the phone can just use its browser to look at the status of parking spaces etc.

Tjank you for the respone, i will look at some tutorials. Is there any way i can use firebase because i saw some people using it and app inventor
One more thing. I dont want to monitor it when i am hot home because i think it is hard. If it is easyer just for it to be on the same wifi as the raspberry

You could use firebase or app inventor OR you could go with what neilgl suggested an use flask (or similar) to develop a web application that will work on any device.
If you just want it to work on your home wifi, this is even simpler.

I will look in App inventor because it seems easyer
