Reduced latency in APAC

Elliot Mackenzie · 6 days ago

Today we've deployed the IoT router to Sydney!

Previously users in Asia Pacific were routed through the USA. With the addition of our new datacenter in Sydney, users in the Asia Pacific region should see reduced latency in terminal and a more responsive wormhole service.

Awesome!

                  Easy graphical file management through wormhole

                  Radoslaw Kieltyka · about a year 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 · about a year 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: https://docs.dataplicity.com/docs/installation-on-different-oss

                      Elliot Mackenzie · about a year ago

                      Dataplicity leverages many supporting technologies in the provision of our remote device management service (https://www.dataplicity.com/), 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...

                        Support for teams!

                        Elliot Mackenzie · 2 years ago

                          Wormhole support for iframes

                          Elliot Mackenzie · 2 years 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 · 2 years 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 "...
