New to Xojo and need some basic guidance.
I am developing a Raspberry Pi application for an industrial environment involving the reading of sensors, and downloaded the Xojo free version for now and it works like a champ! The GUI part of what I developed with Xojo makes this tool seem perfect.
Now I want to push the recorded data to SQL Server and it seems like from what I have read here, the included Plugins for Xojo OOB are SQL Server, MySQL, ODBC (great!), Oracle and PostgreSQL.
However, ALL of these would be for the Windows Desktop and/or Mac?
For the Raspberry Pi, would I/should I use the MonkeyBread software library? It looks like it has everything I need, a Linux version (which I am guessing is Pi compatible). I don’t know a thing about that layer and I looked into Microsoft .Net Core 5/6, which seems like it would do it, but that is just another layer/library that feels like it might not be necessary.
My question to the collective is: What are the best practices for developing an application that would run on the Raspberry Pi/Linux using Xojo in the Windows environment, and probably testing within the Windows environment?
After the Raspberry Pi project, I will be buying the Xojo “non free” version for other things, and potentially some iOS iPad type applications. Hoping for Android, but it seems like that is a lot further out.
Thanks in advance,
