    This is a key part of ease of use with Raspberry Pi based spectrometers, and also Infragram use with Raspberry Pi cameras:

    Would love to modify both these pieces of software to be able to stream from a Rasberry Pi on a local network, or even on the same device. The relevant code sections are:


    There's some really good starting code here: https://www.sitepoint.com/streaming-a-raspberry-pi-camera-into-vr-with-javascript/

    Please help out if you can!

    Looks like you can just load it as an image using this code, and insert it:

          var piImage = new Image();
          piImage.onload = function() {
            context.drawImage(piImage, 0, 0, canvas.width, canvas.height);
          piImage.src = "http://raspberry.local/cam_pic.php?time=" + new Date().getTime();

    But we'll need to set up CORS permissions on the Pi to do this from SpectralWorkbench.org or Infragram.org, unless we run a version of that code on the Pi itself: https://enable-cors.org
