Presenting SMB storage via HTTP

Linux - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 20:13

Enterprise admin here in need of some inspiration. I have a group of very loud, very active users that repeatedly copy multi-hundred megabit files to a SMB share on the other side of my WAN. Despite my protests, the users will not change their behavior and keep complaining about slow file copy performance. Does anyone have any ideas on a way to present SMB storage via any other method, like HTTP, for example?

Application Context - detect widgets?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 17:58

I would like to disable monochrome when a particular widget is visible. Currently, I disable monochrome when Launcher3 is in the foreground, but I'd like to be more targeted, and only disable monochrome when the widget is visible- so not when I am viewing the drawer, and not when I am on a home screen tab that does not contain the widget.

How might I do this? Monitoring services certainly won't help, as I believe widgets leave services running at all times.

Looking for an open source auto dashboard app to use with a custom bluetooth remote

Developing Android Apps - Mon, 01/15/2018 - 17:12

I've been working on a remote keyboard device that can control a phone, with the intention of using it while driving. You can check out my work so far here.

https://hackaday.io/project/27593-tactile-remote-control-of-a-mobile-device

The idea is to use the remote to control the phone while driving so you don't have to interact with the touchscreen. I've developed a simple app that handles the bluetooth connections and demos some simple actions. My background is hardware, not android development.

I'd like to find an open source automobile dashboard that I can add the functionality of my device to as a demo. Does anybody know of one?

And if you are a developer with bluetooth experience i'd love to hear your thoughts on my device!
