Docsy Blog

This is the blog section. It has two categories: News and Releases.

Files in these directories will be listed in reverse chronological order.

The documentation for the tally sheet is online!

Now a first beta version of the tally sheet is finally available.

Hello out there!

Today I have some news for you again! With the cold season I also have a little more time and motivation that benefits the 2log project. As always I am very happy about feedback. If there are any problems, just contact me via eMail or Discord.

The new tally sheet is here!

I am happy to inform you that now the tally sheet has been released as an Android app. You can use it to account for snacks, drinks or work materials in your community. For example, you just take a coke from the fridge and pay afterwards on the tablet with your 2log card. Without any cash - either with the card or the 2log app. Be sure to try this out and let me know if it works for you!

Alternative Device Provisioning

In addition, the documentation for manual device provisioning has also been added. As mentioned in my last blog post, the 2log admin app sometimes still has problems when provisioning the devices. Therefore I have added an alternative possibility to the documentation. Dot or Switch can now be connected with a Linux shell. Read more…

Many bugfixes

I strongly recommend all users to update the container - I merged some new bugfixes from the dev to the main branch today! Among other things there were some problems with the initial password reset. These are fixed now!

News from the hardware

The board with the fixed ground plane will probably be in my hands on wednesday and I will test it directly. This would also finally solve the bad support of different card types. Furthermore, the new board has another goodie on board: It allows to solder a small OLED display instead of the RFID reader. This should soon make it possible to log in to a machine without a card at all, using only the app.

So stay tuned and check the blog regularly. Have a good time and stay healthy!

See you next time,
Friedemann

Version 1.0 will be released soon!

The tests from the beta phase have been very successful so far, so that we can assign the first release tag with version 1.0 soon!

Again, way too much time has passed since my last blog post. Nevertheless, I am happy to announce some news!

The last known bug of the current 2log Dot PCB is solved. A failed ground plane caused that many RFID card types could not be read. A new, revised version is currently in the final iteration and will be released very soon. Also the firmware versions for Switch and Dot from the current main branch work absolutely reliable after setup.

Only the provisioning of the hardware via the app sometimes needs a second or third attempt. Restarting the hardware or the app solves the problem in most cases. It’s a bit annoying, but not a showstopper.

Dear friends, I am very happy to say: The official 1.0 is within reach!

Since I started to promote the project a bit more actively I decided to set up a Discord server. (Use the following link to join: https://discord.gg/7TAFtqXd) Questions or problems can be discussed there directly. In addition I want to set up a forum in the near future. Until then just use the Discord server if you have questions or problems!

Switch Firmware for Shelly Plug S is now Release Candidate!

Firmware for Shelly Plug S is now Release Candidate!

It took way too long, but now the last bugs of the official firmware for the Shelly Plug S are fixed! The current firmware has passed all long term and field tests, so that it got the tag 1.0-RC1 in the main branch.

This also means that the free open source version of 2log is as good as ready and can be used very soon!

But that’s not all - there will be a hardware update for the 2log Dot in a few weeks! Besides some changes, which hopefully solve the EMV problem for some card types, there will also be the option to install an OLED display instead of the RFID reader for the first time. This should make it possible in the future to use the Dot either with the cards or with the app, by scanning QR codes.

Hello world!

It has taken a long time, a lot has happened, but now it is finally ready. 2log is open source and can be used freely by everyone!

It’s the Haxogreen 2022 - the first milestone I have planned for this event is reached: The 2log landing page is finally online!

There might still be some dead ends here and there and probably this landing page will never be really finished. But what’s there so far is a good start and hopefully helps to get 2log.io up and running on your own.

As always, feedback and cooperation is highly appreciated.
