Also can we modify or add our own widgets or graphics to the Venus OS GUI?

Yes search for gui, qml, venus os or a combination of them.


next warning ;o).

these are simple questions to answer for me and I happen to have time - we (victron) don’t offer any q&a support for the quest you’re starting on.


Ps, ofcourse this website is also community driven - with well asked questions and a bit of luck there is help from others when it comes to software development around venus is

Hi, yes see here:

but beware, thats usually several weeks of fulltime work and requires lots of self reading and trying.

Thanks Matthijs. Yes it will probably take me much longer than several weeks as I am a novice when it comes to programming software.

Cheers!
