I have a digital signage type app that displays and aggregates data from social sources and an RSS feed. The data is then visualized in a large scale browser canvas (a little over 2K).The app runs on node with a mondo database All of this part is fine and is working correctly.
What I need to do:
The app designed to act like a screensaver – it is supposed to auto launch upon the system being idle for a certain period time OR user activated. A previous developer created a small .exe that served as a timer to launch the app full screen and contained functionality to allow an exit ‘confirmation’ screen. I need to add a small bit of functionality to it – It needs to listen on a specific socket for a signal from an AMX controller to launch / turn off the app in addition to what it is currently programmed to do.
