Can VRS do something that sounds simple?

Hi all,

I'm trying to find a way to get VRS to tell me how many planes it's logged so far today. It sounds simple, but it seems to be beyond possible. How can that be with such clever software?

I want to remotely monitor the state of the plane count for the day, and to display that number a panel app on my desktop. I'd like to do that using a crontab entry, maybe linked to a small simple script.

I run VRS on a Raspberry PI 3 with Stretch (Dec 2017), and my desktop machine is running a Debian distro. (MX 15)

Any thoughts on how I can do that without having to go completely over the top with complex software?

Download Database Writer and install, on options click plugin open Database Writer create the base station.sqb select the receiver and enable, might be best to have an external memory storage for this as the SD card can fill up quick if you are using a Pi, then on the web browser menu button click and click reports etc.

Exactly. What he said. Click reports and today's flights.
