Xibo Open Source Digital Signage

could u please briefly describe me how the contents are downloaded to data folder?

Asked by Viswanathan R on 2012-03-15

While running the client the scheduled data are downloaded to client and play. but while checking the code , i have little bit confused about the data transfer. Through xmds only the client has to connected, but when run the data folder was automatically created. i cant able to identify that how that folder was created while running and how the downloaded content was stored in the data folder.

When the client runs, it creates the configured client library folder (defaults to data) and then downloads content from the server via XMDS.

The only exception to this is the splash screen (layout 0) which is copied from the resources folder if it doesn't exist in the library.
