hello, new to openEMS.
trying to follow the instructions in the ‘getting started’ section to try the features of this opensource project.
have already succeeded steps 1-3 and configured the websocket api controller. in step 4, while trying to open the url in the instruction in chrome (os: ubuntu), the webpage is only partially loaded and no login page is shown as indicated in the instruction.
‘inspector/network’ of chrome showing errors indicate websocket upgrade failure as page attempted to connect to the insecure websocket endpoint ‘ws: url’
would appreciate it if someone can give me a walk-around on this issue, thanks
Hi Steve and welcome to the OpenEMS Community!
In step 4 of the Getting Started guide I do recommend you to follow the link:
If you plan to actively develop on OpenEMS UI, you can now also setup a development environment for it using this guide. Otherwise just go ahead with the hosted version:
As you are running everything locally with default settings, UI should try to establish a “ws”-connection and not “wss” (i.e. non-encrypted websocket).
Also there seems to be an issue currently that sometimes causes a blank page. Refreshing the browser tab should help in that case (see Setup IDE for OpenEMS UI: not working - #5 by NiallDarwin). We are in the process to fix this issue.
it works and really appreciate your help
