NanoPi's on the Dashboard?

I’ve successfully built the NanoPi Neo Air from the Allwinner repo and used it as a baseline to build support for the FriendlyElec NanoPi-R1. It seems to run fine in dev/local mode, but I’d like to see if I can get it on my list of apps and I don’t see a way to do it. Moreoever, I don’t even see the Nanopi Air on the list of supported platforms on my balena.io dashboard of apps. Is there a document on how o do this?

It looks like there are still some remaining issues with it, looking at the issue here: https://github.com/balena-os/resin-os-device-support/issues/38
The NanoPi is still in staging at the moment

So if I bitbake a DEVELOPMENT_IMAGE = “1” image for the Nanopi-R1, then integrate the config.json as per those instructions you cited in the repo, I do see it listed on the app dashboard, but that’s about it. I don’t see the device’s IP addresses, etc.

@vesper I believe this information is reported by the supervisor, so perhaps you could check if it’s correctly starting? You can run balena ps to check the status of the supervisor container, as well as journalctl -n 50 -u resin-supervisor to view any logs (feel free to share them here if there’s any useful information).

I’d made a mistake in not pointing the device to the “staging” server. Once I created a Nanopi Neo Air application there and used its config.json on my Nanopi R1 build, I seem to be getting connectivity and it appears in my staging dashboard.
