Hi!

My name is Leonard. I would like to create app communicating with wifi with Arduino for Windows Phone. Do you have plans for Windows Phone?

Regards,

Leonard

Hi, Leonard!

We have not yet had enough time to properly support Windows Phone in Evothings Studio, but we do have a few things that might be useful for you.

The Evothings Client can be compiled for Windows Phone 8, if you have installed Ruby, Cordova 3.1 or later, Visual Studio and the Windows Phone 8 SDK. Run this command in the EvothingsClient directory:

Code: Select all

ruby workfile.rb wp8


To communicate with an Arduino over WiFi or Ethernet, you'll need the Cordova plugin "org.chromium.socket". Unfortunately, the mainline version of this plugin does not support Windows Phone. My work on it is available here. It is mostly untested.

Hi Fredrik!

Thanks for the useful info! I'm not that familiar with the Native SDKs and related technologies, but I'll give it a try for sure! I'm more of a Javascript developer and therefore it seems your solution would be good for me. Hope you will support WP8 soon.

Regards,

Leonard
