"HTTP post to any web server or use an online processor like Kobo Post Processor."

The documentation states "...post to any web server or use an online
processor like Kobo Post
Processorhttp://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/KoboPostProcessor"
How do you instruct Collect to post to a web site and where is the Kobo Post
Processor download? Thanks -steve-

you can do http post to any site, but that site has to know what to do
with the file. we use the openrosa standard defined at
https://bitbucket.org/javarosa/javarosa/wiki/OpenRosaAPI.

the kobo post processor link was incorrect. i changed it to
http://code.google.com/p/kobo. you can the latest version there.

Thanks Yaw,

Great. So how do I point Collect to actually post to an arbitrary site?

I'll look at the kobo link.

Thanks again.

ps. It appears that the looping group option eliminates my earlier concerns
about all the overhead for starting a new form. I hope that a loop of 150
or so entries is not a problem.)

Hmmm.. Looks like the Kobo processor is straight forward but I'm not having
any joy. In the settings I set the XML Source Directory to the odk instance
containing the xml file (I verified that the xml file was there) then it
looks like Sync moves it to another folder then Transcribe is suppose to
make the csv. For whatever reason Sync isn't moving the xml instance. I'll
keep fooling with it but if I'm doing some noob thing let me know. -steve-

I took a look at the OpenRosaAPI page and well errr.. uhhmm... that's back
to Unix Man pages to me. :slight_smile: Was hoping to find some PHP library or
something. At least I can pull the data directly off the phone if needed.
If I can't figure out the Kobo stuff I'll just write my own parser as my
form shouldn't be too complex and won't be changing after I figure it out.

that is a kobo specific issue, but i'm sure neil (mr. kobo himself)
will respond when he gets some time.

Yaw, Thanks!

That was easy. I changed it to hit my server and sure enough it did (but
failed) I was hoping I could do a simple spin through all posted variables
but that didn't work. Does anyone have a php script that will pull off the
posted data? (I'll also look at the OpenRosaAPI but that may be a stretch
for me.)

We have a nice, simple python server that you can run locally and push data
to:

Doh! My son told me I should have learned Python (or something
called Haskell, his favorite) instead of PHP. But I looked at
www.hotscripts.com and saw that PHP had 19,208 scripts and Python only 147.
So I taught myself PHP. (I wanted to at least better understand what it was
I was borrowing. :slight_smile: But I'll take a look at this. If its something I can
run along side my php and if my host supports it then it might be just the
ticket. Thanks.
