September 17, 2020 Software Update

Hi all,

This morning we released a new version of the FarmBot web app. Here’s what’s new:

Fullscreen image viewer

You can now view images with a fullscreen viewer when using a tablet or desktop sized screen. Just click the four-arrows button above the panel image to view the current image fullscreen.

View raw celeryscript in the sequence editor

A new setting to VIEW CELERYSCRIPT in the sequence editor’s gear menu will reveal < / > icons in the button cluster of each step in your sequence, allowing you to view the raw celeryscript of each command. This can be useful for seeing what’s going on under-the-hood, allowing developers to more easily create 3rd party tools for reading and writing sequences. 

Clicking the < / > icons allows you to switch back and forth with the normal UI for making changes.

There is also a < / > icon in the sequence header, for viewing the celeryscript of the entire sequence. 

Take photo and weed detection animations

The farm designer will now show an animation when FarmBot is taking a photo or scanning the garden for weeds to help visually communicate what FarmBot is doing when running a sequence. To view the animations, ensure the PHOTOS layer is turned on. 

Dropdown improvements

Dropdown menus throughout the app got a facelift to remove unnecessary amounts of padding, control overall width, and better support long item names. Additionally, the search field will no longer be shown when the dropdown has just a few items in it.

 

Event and regimen limits

Due to some user reports, we identified performance issues stemming from events with a high number of occurrences and by extension, regimens with a high number of items. From here on out, the API will not allow more than 500 regimen items per regimen, 500 event occurrences per event, or 10,000 event occurrences per account. This change may affect a very small number of user accounts as they are set up today.

Miscellaneous

  • The ASSERTION command has been cleaned up a bit stylistically
  • There is a new icon link in the main nav to our online shop
  • There’s a lot of under-the-hood changes for a new FBOS release infrastructure coming soon
