I need to commission some big TVs around my plant that show metrics for a particular line. Ideally, I’d like to automatically rotate through some ignition screens, as well as some web-based dashboards (Tableau). I’d settle for just the tableau dashboards.
So I think I could do this pretty easily with a Vision client on a PC, I would simply drop in the Tableau embed (html) code in JxBrowser then write a script to periodically switch to the next screen. My problem here is I need to get a special windows account created that doesn’t get automatically kicked off after a certain period of time. On top of that, whenever updates get pushed, the PC reboots and I have to manually log back in. There is a kiosk mode in windows 10, but unfortunately it only allows certain apps (not ignition).
I’ve been exploring how to do this with a Raspberry Pi and Vision in this thread, but it appears for now, JxBrowser is not compatible w/ ARM. I’m still working on getting a 64-bit raspi to work with the v8 launcher.
Using an inline frame in perspective seems out of the question because of this:
And there doesn’t seem to be a way to embed HTML code within a perspective page (the markdown tool strips everything out except for text).
Anybody have an idea for how I can get this done?
