Thanks for the info, Ray. I wish I could have the best of both worlds – Python/plugin architecture as well as compatibility. I really like what Dan has done, and thank him for it, it’s just that the flexibility isn’t there for the zones.
My impression is that you really had to cram things in to get it to work on the Arduino. With the Linux-based versions, how can we make use of the expanded capabilities? If not plugins, would there be a way to run parallel programs that could interact with the main sprinkler software?
Also, I’m wondering about the reliability of the PI version vs. the Arduino version. I’ll be mounting things in boxes out doors, with full sun. I’m concerned about relying on that tiny SD card to boot, as well as the temperature of the PI in the summer sun. The Arduino boots so quickly and reliably. any thoughts?
