This week, I made an interface to control Philips Hue. With Anna, Vince, and Sid, we studied together on Saturday afternoon and figured this out.
These are the steps I did:
connect hardware, hub (power + ethernet), bloom (power)
finding IP address (on the hub, the IP address looks like 220.127.116.11, but it is 151)
use Philip’s developer interface, registered a username
copy and paste Tom’s client-control.js to my own file
added alert effect
did a little design for the interface
Other things I learned:
According to Vince, it was better to clone the whole repository because other files may be needed to run client-control.js. I also watched Shiffman’s video (p5 workflow) about install p5 package on my project, so I could use p5 in my visual studio code. I also learned some very basic front-end (html and css) from Vince. Now I have a slightly better understanding about the bigger picture of back-end and front-end.
