This is actually a very simple question, but I'm lost at the moment.
This is actually with a beaglebone black. But I suppose the problem might translate to RPi too.
I was using a beaglebone black for a school project. It controls a bunch of motors and actuators,etc. We wrote everything in C++, and made libraries of functions. When a main program calls them, the functions run just fine.
Recently we have been told to demo our progress so far. The main program is nowhere near done, so we were thinking of some sort of web interface that can execute the complied C++ program on command. We were hoping to get the server hosted on the board, and access it via LAN from other PCs. But I've never done this before and have no idea where to start. Does node.js (with the 'bonescript') going to be of any help? Or is there a simpler way with basic HTML?
I only have a few days to figure it out, so I didn't want to waste time looking at the wrong methods.
