I do not know your development skills, but I strongly encourage you to get comfortable with git repositories and create one for your project.
This not only optimizes your development, but helps other people to contribute to it.
I wanted to add this feature but in the openHAB LogViewer you generally can’t change it (even on the pc, it’s the same website).
To include it in the app, the feature has to be added by the openHAB team to the website, I’m sorry!
You can publish the full source code, not just the java code. This makes it possible for everyone to build the app from source. Please also add a free software license, so people are allowed to contribute to your app.
Actually I don’t think looking through log files on a smart phone is something people want to do. But feel free to open a PR to implement this. If there are enough supporter, this should get merged.
Which website are you going to access to get the log file?
just found your app and I think it’s a pretty good idea and will be using it in the future.
My ideas to improve it:
When configuring the OH Server Port it says “default is 9001”. So I assumed I could just leave this field empty. I think when not entering a port the app should use 9001, so the field is no longer a requirement for the user.
I think the orange bar on the top ("openHAB 2 Log Viewer…) could be smaller in height. However I think this isnt that easy to achieve.
When in “Auto Scroll acrivated” it would be nice if either
a. The user was able so scroll just as the user wanted to but get put back to the bottom if a new message comes in. or
b.The user was not able to scroll at all. Now he can scroll but gets set back to the bottom immeadiatly. I think the effect doesnt look as nice.
Maybe you could move the back button more to the top so it doesnt cover up information. On the other hand 95% of the time its just the timestamp.
