I've loaded a new user guide for Souliss library out of the user guide for vNet that was already loaded, both are available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/veseo-souliss/files/User%20Guide/

Hm, isn't this a lot of complexity to solve a relatively easy problem ? Maybe abstract frameworks are fun, but this looks soo complex that I'm afraid it will be slow on poor Arduinos...

Quite sure that you haven't tryed it, isn't slow.

If you look to many of the home automation project build up to now, you will found nice project that doesn't offer scalability: for example many will not offer both hardwired and serial command or doesn't not support multiple nodes.

If you want to try it and share your suggestion, you will be welcome.

After the first release of Souliss, I've changed a bit the roadmap moving at high priority an user interface, then docs will follow as much is possible.

The idea at begin of project was build the Souliss frame over different OS, this make PC or mobile devices like nodes able to interact, so make them user interface. To speed-up the development I've moved to a different solution, with a node that collect all data from other nodes and share these data via JSON. Based on this solution is ready (but still not released) a web-based user interface, furthermore an iPhone apps may be worked out by BoomTakZaag.

In attachment there is a screenshot for the user interface, is AJAX based but the webpage isn't loaded from the Arduino and is loaded locally from the PC or mobile device. At this topic an example for TinyWebServer is modified to load the page locally and use JSON, based on this is born the user interface for Souliss.

This interface will be released at end of Jan12 with other improvement, if someone in the mean time would help as alpha-tester will be welcome.
