Coming Soon! FrontPanel WebAPI

That’s right — with the WebAPI, you’ll be able to program and control your FrontPanel-enabled devices from a web browser through a FrontPanel-over-IP server.

While FrontPanel is already supported on several platforms and programming languages, this next installment adds the web browser and JavaScript (well, TypeScript, really). Stay tuned for more information.
