Hello! I'm developing an irrigation system for my father, controlled from browser. I have 2 forms in one page: 1 for switching on and off relays (currently working) 1 for setting start and stop times for sectors. (currenly not parsed)
one form sends http get request like: 192.168.0.77/?RELAY0=ON or ?RELAY0=OFF i had no trouble in parsing this, thanks to the example in arduino library.
the other form, sends this kind of http get: 192.168.0.77/?sector=1&enabled=true&onhour=0&onminute=0&offhour=0&offminute=0 these are the parameters i need to parse.
First question: is get better than post in arduino? Should i switch to post for easier parsing?
Second question: how should i manage parsing? since i have 2 standard types of message, should i add another parameter at first, turning request like: ?page=manage&RELAY0=ON ?page=settings§or=1&enabled=true&onhour=0&onminute=0&offhour=0&offminute=0
all parameters are uint8_t except enabled, boolean.
I use: Arduino Mega 2560 Ethernet Shield (WizNet 5100) DS3231 RTC 4 Channel Relay
Timing works ok for all channels, hardcoding start and stop times worked for test purpose. This is the last brick to see the system at work! :)
Thanks for any tip!
