IPad web interface

Post by AndreaBB » Tue Aug 22, 2017 11:15 pm

Hi, I have some issue with the web interface from my iPad: I can select and move a node, but I cannot get the contextual menu with start/stop/edit/etc line.
Is there any plan to support it?

IPad Pro has a 12.9 inches display, my MacBook has 13... it's just metter to fix the html code.
Ps: I use my iPhone connected to the external monitor and keyboard with ssh client to lab at work. Why I shouldn't?

Recommended browsers are: firefox and Chrome..

Honestly,I don't understand your previous answer: this kind of software are meant to be used as a server, so any client should be able to interact with them.
I have tried to unzoom, it doesn't work.
I can install Firefox or Chrome on the iPad, but the engine is still safari so nothing change.
Bad luck in software development doesn't exist.

EVE isn't meant to run on Safari - there is simply no useful usecase for this - why should i use eve (tabbed or ssh) on an ipad? The Screen is simply too small - this way your eyes will get cancer ;)
It's impossible to support all Clients - it simply is impossible.
Better stick with Linux / Windows and real Chrome / Firefox without all that crazy "i-World-Stuff".

It's a portable device I can use everywhere (and as said before the screen is just 0.1 inch smaller than my MacBook). I'm labbing for CCIE and I have to use any spare minutes in my life to study regardless where I am located.
Anyway it's up to you, the web interface was the only reason I have to use eve and IHMO the biggest advantage compared to the other solutions. If you think it's not so important, I'll look for something different.

Portable indeed - but extremely closed source - how could this be maintained?
If Apple somehow changes something (and they usually crap on RFC's) it needs to be fixed again and again just to support a small amount of users.
I totally agree with you - portable is great - but a Tablet with Chrome will work just fine and isn't that expensive.

Eve will not support tablet ipad... if it works good for you if not don't ask for....

Nor GNS3 nor Virl is supported , why do you think EVE will ?

EVE UI use javascript and need a complete javascript support with mouse event left click, right click.... If Ipad have no right click , EVE will not work... It is a device limitation, not a EVE issue.
