I’m new to most of this, but I’m pleased to say that I’ve got bibliopixed installed on a Raspberry Pi in a virtual env and have it successfully controling a long strip of APA102s going around a roof lantern - looks great and I’m really pleased so far!
Now I’m trying to include the REST control in a project file (with external_access: true) so that I can control and change the active animations from a web browser, then I’ll be able to auto-run the script and just have the whole lot turned on/off via a regular light switch (OK, there’ll be a delay while the Pi boots, but I can live with that!). The problem I have is that when I try to access the API (http://:8787) from a web browser on another device I get a 404 error - resulting in a “Not Found” page being displayed. It isn’t a network timeout, so I’m assuming the request is making it to the Pi, but it can’t find the file to return?
Could it be running in the virtual environment is confusing the path used to look for index.html? Any other ideas? It is probably something simple and obvious that I’ve missed, but I’ve run out of ideas!
