I’ve setup a self-hosted version of the Rails app. I’m wanting to see if I can increase the current limitation of 1000 points / plants to at least 5000. Does anyone have some insight on why this limitation exists and what can be done to increase it?
Thanks in advance,
The limitation is in place for two main reasons:
- The frontend cannot handle that many points as currently architected and implemented. At 1000 points/plants, performance of the frontend comes to a crawl and can easily make the browser tab unresponsive, especially on lower powered devices such as the chromebooks used in schools.
- The Raspberry Pi and FarmBot OS, similarly, struggle with a high number of points. This is more apparent on the Raspberry Pi Zero included with Express bots, and less of an issue when using a Pi 3 or 4.
With a self-hosted setup you can absolutely increase the limit, but your mileage may vary!
