As an electronic geek and nerd i often use such simple tool like multimeter.

I found an Bluetooth (BLE) Multimeter which can be controlled from the Smartphone (Android and IOS). https://moosh.im/

The Software is Open Source and is here: https://github.com/mooshim

As i see, Python is used for communication between smartphone and Bluetooth Multimater.

The problem is, that we can't use Android App under SailfishOS, because Alien Dalvik can't use Bloetooth for anything than Audio under Sailfish. So we need an native SailfishOS App here.

Maybe some devs can analyse the code and tell us, how complicated is to compile the software for SailfishOS.

I would be very happy to help the developer with testing and bugfixing.

Thanks

Looking at the code, doesn't look like a too complicated device, one service and 2 characteristics. Could be a good test of my BLE wrapper library I use to interface with my watch. https://github.com/piggz/qble if anyone wants to code something up!

That would be awesome, pigg! If you could integrate it to the amazfish....Would be a dream!

Not saying im gonna implement it, but the tools are maybe there to allow someone else :)

Maybe, if you have time, you can fork or support the version from lethe?

Send me a meter and i'll be happy to write an app for it! ;)

I started writing a native app for my Mooshimeter some time ago, but did not get around to clean it up for release. Since there is obviously some interest here, I decided to just put the app in it's current state on github: https://github.com/sigurg/sailfishos-mooshimeter

You can find a precompiled RPM (for 32bit ARM) in the releases section on github. So far this app has only ever been tested on my aquafish (which is a bit confused and thinks it's a Jolla C :) ) with my 1. generation Mooshimeter, so it may not work on any other device combination, ymmv.

Wow, thats great! Will test it as soon, as my mooshimeter arrive (in 2 days)

I saw, some guy made yesterday spanish translation. I would like to add german, russian and maybe ukrainian translation.

Did you plan to do further development here ?

I definitely want to develop this app further, as time permits, so patches & pull requests are always welcome.

Changing the Bluetooth backend to qble would probably be a good thing, but it may take me some time, since I have no clue about Bluetooth... Basically, I just took this lib (a fact I should really add to the readme) and wrote a qml GUI around that. The good thing is, that this lib only uses libc sockets, so no depedencies which needed porting, but error handling is severely limited (as in "does not exist"), so switching to qble would probably solve issues in that regard.
