Can you hear me now?

The web application should now be in communication with your FarmBot. You should see some bootup logs streaming into the status ticker, and FarmBot should respond to any commands you send it. If there are any problems, see the Configurator Troubleshooting Tips.

Web app workflow

The recommended workflow for using the web app is:

  1. Add plants in the Farm Designer: my.farm.bot/app/designer/plants
  2. Add Tools: my.farm.bot/app/tools
  3. Create Sequences for using those tools: my.farm.bot/app/sequences
  4. Create Regimens to repeat sequences at specific times in the days of a plant's life: my.farm.bot/app/regimens
  5. Schedule Events to execute sequences or regimens: my.farm.bot/app/designer/events
  6. Watch your FarmBot work! my.farm.bot/app/controls (Also my.farm.bot/app/designer)

Provisioning the web app

At your service

We offer a hosted service of the web app at my.farm.bot. We recommend that most people use this because it is convenient, affordable, and always up-to-date with the latest features and security.

For advanced users only

Our instructions for provisioning the web app are intended for expert users and software developers who wish to run the FarmBot Web App on their own servers. This may be useful for enterprise or off-grid intranet solutions. Nontechnical users are encouraged to use the hosted service at my.farm.bot.
