Hi all, due to the fact my old tool Sandvox from Karelia Software is no longer running with the latest update of macOS, I switched some days ago to Sparkle Pro.
Now I’m facing a problem, I can’t solve even searching in this community: When trying a preview I’m just seeing a white page in my browser (I’ve tried Firefox, Chrome and Safari - it’s all the same). When I’ve used the 14 days free of charge version, I’ve received at the top of the page “This was generated with a free of charge version of Sparkle” (or similar in German).
In addition I’m quite surprised about the IP shown inside the window. It’s totally different to the one of my iMac.
The IP address used to preview the site is the private and local IP address, and not the public IP address. You can check your private IP address in your Mac settings, under Settings > Network > Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
The time I had this problem of a white page was because of a duplicate, I had two different versions of Sparkle installed on my Mac. A regular version and a beta version. But I don’t think that’s your case…
@Olaf, you have selected “auto scaling” on all your devices except PC. When you have auto scaling selected Sparkle does the work and that is the reason why you can’t access the layouts.
Have you checked how your 320 device is looking?
I would strongly advice in not auto scaling your mobile device and manually tweak the layout and its content to give your Users’ a better mobile experience.
127.0.0.1 is always the address of the computer to itself, so called “localhost”. That’s the IP shown when you have selected the “This computer only” preview availability. In other words the preview won’t be usable from the local network, which is something you probably prefer if you’re in an office or coffee shop. If you switch to “Computers and mobile devices on the local network” Sparkle will then open preview access to other devices by exposing the preview service on your network IP.
