    Easy graphical file management through wormhole

    Radoslaw Kieltyka · 13 days ago

    Cloud Commander provides an elegant drag and drop web-based file manager for Linux devices. It's quick to setup, easy to use, and it works via Dataplicity Wormhole :)

      Dataplicity on non-Debian OS

      Elliot Mackenzie · 16 days ago

      The Dataplicity installer was designed to run out of the box on Debian-based distributions, including Raspbian and Ubuntu. If, however, you want to run Dataplicity on a different OS, we've provided some instructions to help you along the way.

      Here it is:

        Dataplicity Lomond

        Elliot Mackenzie · 27 days ago

        Dataplicity leverages many supporting technologies in the provision of our remote device management service (, but few of which are more critical in the provision of the service than Websockets.

        To that end, we've tried and tested lots of different Python Websocket cl...

            Wormhole support for iframes

            Elliot Mackenzie · 2 months ago

            Until now, wormhole responses were served with X-Frame-Options set to DENY. By popular request, this header has been removed so you can now embed wormhole pages directly into your own apps.

                            Elliot Mackenzie · 7 months ago

                            Last month we launched Dataplicity for Android. Today, we are announcing Dataplicity for iOS!

                            With Dataplicity for iOS:

                            • Get a remote shell for your Raspberry Pi terminal right from your mobile device
                            • Scan your local network for new Raspberry Pi devices and make them available via Dataplicity

                              Elliot Mackenzie · 8 months ago

                              Today we're announcing our new API for managing devices and account details!

                              Things you can do with this API:

                              • Programmatically query or update information about devices, including their description
                              • Query device status
                              • Trigger a device reboot

                                Elliot Mackenzie · 8 months ago

                                Historically web browsers were intercepting any text pasted into the terminal. This was pretty annoying.

                                So.... good news! You can now copy and paste to/from the web terminal. :-)

                                Browser limitations mean we had to use a slightly different key combination than the native OS key combination for "...

                                    2. Logging is vastly improved. Log files in /var/log/dpinstall.log and /var/log/dataplicity.log are now much m...

                                          Elliot Mackenzie · 10 months ago

                                          Our support team is frequently asked how to bake Dataplicity into an installation image suitable for mass production.

                                          Here's how:
