Mod Note: Due to server changes made by Tesla, most owners now need the version posted here.
[The FAQ is here]
[Documentation including installation instructions are online here]
[Release notes for the current version are online here]
I put together a little desktop app called VisibleTesla that allows you to do the same things that the iPhone app does, plus a few new things as well. It is based on the great work done by the folks of the "Model S REST API" thread. In fact, I announced it in that thread and have been discussing there until now. I feel that I was cluttering that thread with topics that aren't strictly about the REST API, so I started a new thread here.
You can always find the latest version of VisibleTesla in this repository. Sometimes the latest version will be newer than what is listed in this post. That means I consider it to be experimental. There will usually be a number of previous versions there as well. If you have problems with the latest version, you can back off to a previous version to see if it works better.
You can read the documentation for VisibleTesla online here. It will give you a feel for what the app looks like, what it can do, and how to use it. Please take a look at the documentation and release notes that come when you download the app. They give some basic instructions.
NOTE: I will no longer edit this post to list new updates to VisibleTesla. The app will automatically check for updates on a weekly basis and users may manually check for updates at any time by selecting the "Help->Check for Updates" menu item. I will continue to announce new versions as normal posts in this thread.
Here are some quick links to relevant posts from the original thread:
- VisibleTesla 0.1
- Version 0.11 of VisibleTesla is posted here:...
- VisibleTesla v0.12
- VisibleTesla v0.13
- Various Questions
This is just a fun side project that I'm doing with snatches of free time when I can find them. The source is published on github in two parts: The client library (TeslaClient) and the Application (VisibleTesla).
