HG and Netcore 3

Well the good new is that HG looks promising with its transition to the Net Core 3 environment. Code appears to be a lot tighter and once the correct environment is setup for Linux users (Raspbian or Raspberry Pi OS as it’s known now) in my case, the improvement is very noticeable.

The new UI built around Angular is certainly a welcome addition. It still has limited functionality but it’s definitely getting there. Of course the old familiar UI is still in use for those that need it while this transition is in progress.

For those who were championing the transition to Netcore this is an opportunity to test HG in this environment.

Alpha testing is shortly coming to a conclusion. Unfortunately not many experienced users opted to partake in this phase of testing but it’s still not too late to do so.
