Pi Star Mobile Dashboard

A Mobile Friendly Dashboard for Pi Star


All thanks go to Marshall Dias, this can also be found at www.amateurradio.digital/pistar.php

(disclaimer: this is not my work and I did not develop any of it, please use at your own risk, this addon does NOT require admin rights, should not break the update process)


Here is a handy mobile optimized dashboard for Pi Star installations. This doesn't change the default dashboard or any other operation of your Pi Star. This is simply an add-on. To install or update just follow the instructions below or from Marshall's post.

SSH into your Pi Star installation. Go to your Pi Star dashboard. You'll need to click "Configure" and "Expert" you'll see the expert settings warning screen and on the right under "Tools:" you'll need to click "SSH Access".
Login with the same username and password you use to login to the dashboard and you'll be taken to a terminal session.

Then run these commands

rpi-rw
sudo wget http://w0otm.com/pistar/pi-star.mobile.install.sh
sudo chmod 555 pi-star.mobile.install.sh
sudo ./pi-star.mobile.install.sh
rpi-ro

Then navigate to pi-star/mobile or ip-address/mobile.

    1. If you can connect to the regular dashboard this should work. Go to the address for your pi-star dashboard and add /mobile on the end.

  3. I can get to the windows dashboard just fine but no luck with getting to the mobile dashboard.
    System is a LG G6 with android 8 and using the chrome browser. Message says that site cannot be reached. p-star's server address cannot be found.
    I have executed the commands per both AmateurRadioDigital and your commands and neither work. Is there any way to tell if the mobile app is installed?

    1. What is the "up address"....typo for "IP address"? I haven't learned how to determine the IP of the pi when connected to my Android yet....any ideas?

      And redacting the callsigns and other info above seems a bit silly....maybe that's st me...j

    2. Actually I just found an IP scanner app for the Android that will give me what I need....I'll try that next time I start the pi. 73!

    3. Fing is a great app for finding IP addresses. It's in the play store and there's a Linux and probably a Windows version as well.

    1. I'll have to look into it. I know that site went to a paid subscription for the user database so that might have something to do with it.
