Any thoughts on creating a new HTML "Remote console" using Canvas & Javascript (via Modbus)?

I am trying to create a custom "Remote console" or something like it, with some of the Venus GX's system data, eg Multplus input W, Output W, PV output, Battery SOC. But then be able to splice into a webpage, using Canvas & Javascript, my own data from an Arduino, by accessing Venus data via Modbus protocol. Any thoughts anyone on how to make a start on that? Or anyone who might be able to assist (I am not a programmer...) Craig

Several folks have built custom dashboards by integrating with ModbusTCP or with MQTT. Victron is also doing some further development in this area, too. Maybe soon it will be possible to put together custom screens without any real "programming."

Thanks ben, perhaps you could put me in touch with them? I am developing a product which interfaces with the Venus OS. Or perhaps I could talk to Victron?

You might take a look at the dev-venus group on Google Groups as a starting point. Lots of folks in there, including Victron people.
