About RPi-Monitor friends
This version of RPi-Monitor introduce the notion of friends. Friends are other RPi-Monitor running on other machines which will be accessible from a drop down menu available on the top right.

Each friend will be configured to be linked to each other. This configuration is done inside rpimonitord.conf using a specific comment starting with the key #> as in the example bellow:

# Comment starting by #> are specific comments. These comments
# will be processed by rpimonitord and integrated into the json
# sent to the server in the form of an array having the name
# specified into the section. The data are not processed by
# rpimonitord. The server will parse and use them.
#>" Pi"

The configuration start by the definition of the section friends:


Then each friend is defined by its url and its display name using the format:

#> "url=name"

Once the configuration is done, the process rpimonitord should be restarted. It is done with the command:

sudo /etc/init.d/rpimonitor restart

You will have to repeat the operation on each friend and then, refresh the pages displayed into you browser to see the new menu appearing.
