havent tried using post or get
at the moment it is just updating every 2 seconds or so (using ds18b20)
for high freq stuff ws should be good though. no need to reestablish connection and no polling
d-anders
@d-anders
with a quick sensor (or what you are getting data from) i guess you could easily do 100hz or so, but maybe @Links2004 knows?

i am trying to write a wifi-to-infrared remote control system and http seems too slow on the esp
it's not nice to wait for 2 secs after you have pressed a key
;)
d-anders
@d-anders
websockets uste http as well
but keeps connection open
if you don't need to use a webinterface i guess you should go with raw tcp
probonopd
@probonopd
yes, i wonder how much that improves things
d-anders
@d-anders
a lot i guess
probonopd
@probonopd
well i want a web interface for the remote control buttons
d-anders
@d-anders
links websocket lib has worked perfectly for me
probonopd
@probonopd
raw tcp is almost instant, i am using that too
only issue, the android devices i am targeting won't do websockets without additional software
d-anders
@d-anders
?
sounds strange, old android?
i think newer android has websocket support in the browser
probonopd
@probonopd
yes i am running android 2.3 and android 4
d-anders
@d-anders
wow, 2.3 :)
probonopd
@probonopd
embedded device, no chance to update
d-anders
@d-anders
hm, if no websockets you have a slight problem
i guess you cant install any plugins either
probonopd
@probonopd
i tink i could write a wrapper app
once i have time ;-)
d-anders
@d-anders
what is it that you are trying to do?
probonopd
@probonopd
on the tablet, have a html interface with buttons
when a button is touched, send a command to the esp
the esp will convert the command to an infrared remote signal
and switch channels on a tv, for example
ideally without much lag
d-anders
@d-anders
ahhh, nice
probonopd
@probonopd
actually the ui part hooks into a server
full of remote control codes
d-anders
@d-anders
maybe skip the html
probonopd
@probonopd
d-anders
@d-anders
and do a java app on the tablet
probonopd
@probonopd
these are easy to produce on the server...
from a crowdsourced database
d-anders
@d-anders
you want the tablet (client) dumb ideally?
probonopd
@probonopd
correct
d-anders
@d-anders
yeah i can see why
too bad it doesnt support websockets then
no flash either i guess?
probonopd
@probonopd
nope
probably i need to create a tiny app that basically just contains a webviw
and implement a javascript-to-android bridge for the sending function
(done that before with bluetooth)
