Open sourcing the backend
  • Just an idea, but what about open sourcing the backend? There are a ton of feature requests and I suppose you guys are pretty busy so why not allow pull requests for features? Let the community help out?

    You still need the physical Twine so Supermechanical can keep making profit of the hardware and have a more feature rich backend which in its turn will attract more buyers?

  • I agree
  • I second this. When I initially backed the project I incorrectly assumed that the server would be on our local network. Just think of all the cool features hundred of twine users could contribute to a git repo.
  • I know this thread is long dead, but has anyone been able to sniff the packets from the Twine?  I watched with Wireshark for a while but I only saw occasional ARP requests from the Twine, never any UDP packets.
  • Well let's reverse engineer this. I started off with capturing some of the IP packets the Twine send out to its "home base". I figured out it is using UDP mostly. I fast mode there is also some TCP packets passing by. I could use some help in figuring out the syntax.

    Here is a captured UDP packet:
