OpenFlexure headless start

Good morning, Good afternoon, Good evening to this wonderful community: Is there a way to do a headless start of the openflexure software? I have a scope but will not be able to connect it directly to a monitor to start the software.

Thanks

I will answer my own question :crazy_face:

  1. install raspAP on you RPi to create a hot spot
  2. using any smart device or computer direct your browser to http://microscope.local:5000/api/v2/streams/mjpeg to view the image only or http://microscope.local:5000 to have full control
  3. The End :smiley:

I haven’t tried it with 2021-06-17-raspbian-openflexure-buster-armhf-full but FWIW usually writing /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf cf Raspberry Pi Documentation - Configuration and enabling ssh creating the empty file /boot/ssh could be enough. Then ssh-ing to with user pi and password openflexure could do. Maybe enabling the camera too and otherwise raspi-config for more.
