Topic: Switch Chumby channels with an HTTP call
Taking advantage of Duane's new Easter egg in Control Panel 2.6.51, I created a *really* simple script to allow changing of the channel via an HTTP call.
Keep in mind that I don't know shell from.... well, I don't know shell. I cobbled this together from samples I found.
put this in /psp/cgi-bin/ :
#!/bin/sh echo $QUERY_STRING > /tmp/change_profile echo "Content-type: text/html" echo "" echo "<html>" echo "<body>" echo "<p>channel will switch to <b>" echo $QUERY_STRING echo "</b> on next refresh</p>" echo "</body>" echo "</html>"
I named it "channel_switch". (for my fellow newbs: make sure that you have the line-terminations right and chmod the file a+x )
then you can run:
replacing Default with the desired channel name. Careful - proper-case matters.
Anyone wanna take a stab at a script that returns the available channels? Is that possible (i did find a script that supposedly lists available widgets, but that was parsing a dir on the local filesystem)?
