I’ve been working on a washing machine integration all day, and I have everything working.
But something is bothering me that I noticed in my “return to home” portion of my pool light setup:
When you click a dashboard tile on a dashboard, or a back or forward button, the transitions are quick and seamless. No evidence it’s loading–it just makes a graceful transition. On the other hand, when you send a command for a certain page to load, it reloads the site, the blue bar up top, loads the dashboard in, then slides the blue bar up off the page. There are loading circles, delays, etc.
Why the difference? I have noticed that, despite the page seeming to just “change” rather than reload a new one, the browser does in fact show that it has loaded a new page. So what I’d love is if there’s a way to load a page (through the Fully Kiosk Remote Admin/Rule Machine, for example) with the seamless transitions.
The project I’ve created here uses IFTTT to trigger rule machine to load a custom dashboard in Fully, which shows the current status of my washer and dryer, and speaks the status of whichever just changed. I’m using Sharptools rules and variables to make a very informative dashboard, but I just wish it would load a bit more gracefully.
Likewise, after it has been displayed for a minute (just as a visual notification screen), I have it auto-reloading the start URL, my main dashboard. This load is suffering the same roughness.
Hope i’m making sense–it’s been a long day.
