Controlling electronics through BoneScript is fun, but imagine just how much more fun it would be if we could use a web page as our user interface. This would allow us to link buttons, controls, and text on a web page to electronics attached to the BeagleBone Black. What’s more, we could connect to that web page using a mobile device.
In this chapter, we look at how to do the following:
• Control digital outputs using web page hyperlinks
• Set analog outputs using a slider
• Continuously display analog and digital inputs on a web page
By having the BeagleBone Black serve a web interface to allow the control of electronics, you can access the hardware over your local network and even over the Internet with suitable modifications ...
