Touch support

By Luca Soldaini @soldni2021-05-20 02:57:37.465Z

Hello! I’ve tried using the tinypilot web UI on my iPad and iPhone and found out that I can’t seem to be able to click; tapping the screen video only moves the cursor. Is there a way to enable touch support? If not, is it a planned feature?

Thank you!

    Thanks for reporting this!

    TinyPilot is only supported officially on desktop at the moment. There are some mobile features, but they're community-supported.

      Hi Michael,

      I´m following this project for quiet some time now and try to persuade my client to buy a few TinyPilots for show cases. He currently employs touch displays currently connected with IP Ninjar KVMs to switch between video/usb sources. I´would prefer a TinyPilot as sink to manage sources inside a Web Context directly.

      Is touch support something you have on your roadmap? Could you please provide a link to the community-supported version you mentioned?

      Kind regards,
      Mirko

        Thanks for reaching out!

        The community-supported version is here:

        Touch support isn't on the short-term roadmap because there hasn't been enough demand, but I'd prioritize it if a customer was interested in a bulk purchase and needed touch support.
