June 7, 2018 Software Update

We updated my.farm.bot and FarmBot OS today with the following new features and fixes: ​ Farm Designer:
  • Added a button to the crop info panel to create a plant in the garden map at FarmBot’s current position.
Sequences:
  • Added an input form to Run Farmware steps if the selected Farmware accepts inputs. These inputs allow a Farmware with inputs to be scheduled or run multiple times with specific inputs each time.
Logs:
  • Increased browser performance when generating many logs.
  • A warning log will display and a “cooldown” period begins if a looping issue creates too many logs at once. The rate limits are 1k logs/minute, 10k logs/hour, and 100k logs per day, at which point logs will no longer be delivered or stored until the next time period.
  • Removed outdated filter of logs containing the word filtered.
  • Fixed bug where emergency stop emails were sent twice for the same event.
FarmBot OS (v6.4.2):
  • Pre-installed a new farmware_tools package to provide Farmware with a simple interface to common commands. To use the new functions, just import farmware_tools as shown in the Farmware development documentation. (You can also pip install farmware_tools for local development.)
  • If FarmBot OS reboots for any reason and a fat32-formatted flash drive is plugged in, FarmBot OS will store a copy of its logs on the flash drive.
