Complete remote administration using SSH
Like everybody else here, I’ve started tinkering with default modules and the more I discover modules, the more I want them displayed but hey life is made of choices right ?
Now , I’ve got everything working locally (ie on the RPI3) and I wanted to just stick it behind the mirror and administer it remotely (read from a different country altogether)
I know how to ssh, nano a config file etc but the whole electron node.js is kinda new to me. I get the concept but I still have a question.
When I npm start locally (read from the RPI itself) things are fine, the monitor displays the “mirror” and I can access that same page from another computer/iphone using it’s web address.
Now if I npm start from SSH, it won’t work (because of no X11 running at the time ?)
Please point me in the right direction so I can move on with my life, this thing starts to drive me crazy.
Long read but hopefully will be helpful to others.
Thanks for reading this far
For now - VNC it is
Hi, check the display enviroment variable in your terminal session.
DISPLAY=:0 nohup npm start &
Or other way you can use pm2.
Thanks for the reply
From the github I guess RTFM still works
Important: npm start does not work via SSH, use DISPLAY=:0 nohup npm start & instead. This starts the mirror on the remote display.
