    Hi Ray,

    It would be lovely to have an option for backing up and restoring the settings and programs on an OpenSprinkler. This would be particularly useful when doing a firmware upgrade on a device with lots of programs and stations or for replacing a unit at some point. I believe it could all be done separately from the device itself via javascript or even by a bit of scripting on a local server.

    This isn’t a huge issue, more the start of polishing the edges of the system.

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Unfortunately since each firmware upgrade often increases the number of options and changes the format of the program data structure, it’s difficult to automatically save and restore these data on the microcontroller. But these data structures are starting to stabilize and the firmware has remained the same for the past few months, so hopefully users don’t have to do this often.
