Using the Web GUI it is possible to control your projects Exposed Properties and Layer selection via a web browser. The GUI is optimised for touch surfaces (tablets, phones etc). You can also develop your own web GUI interfaces or control from remote web apps using the Web API on which the Web GUI is based. The Web GUI can be used within both standalone and media server contexts, although with media servers once the WebGUI link is established the exposed parameters will ignore media server updates, to avoid conflicting data.
Builder does not support layer changes through the WebGUI, to avoid conflict between the WebGUI and Notch UI.
