I configured my Raspberry Pi as a LAMP server. I have LEDs connected to my RP and can control them with c/c++ programs. Now I want to built a web interface to control the colors of my LEDs. For my first attempt I used JQuery to send different commands to a PHP script that would execute a program with the color as a parameter. This doesn't seems to be the best solution, because I'm pretty limited on any effects I can make. So my second idea was to use sockets to send information to my program. This means my ledControler program listens for incoming commands and executes them. For this I used Websockets, but since I didn't use a library for my c++ program, it was very painfull to implement the whole WebSocket RFC. Another idea was to use PHP sockets. But I didn't test it out. My question is, am doing this completely wrong? Is there a simpler preferred way to do this?
