caQtDM, the synoptic display manager developed at PSI supports multiple platforms: linux, windows, android, macOSX and ios in their native graphic mode. In its default mode of operation it gets the display description (.ui) files from the local file system. However it also supports a http based mode, i.e. it can get files provided by a web server, which are loaded into a local cache. This is the standard way of loading displays on mobile devices, but allows on other platforms a way of getting the display files, allowing therefore an easy versioning of display files. caQtDM supports through its loading of control system plugins, multiple control systems. Actually EPICS and bsread (a streaming protocol) are implemented, and other communication systems could be added through a plugin. This presentation will explain the different ways of using caQtDM, as well as other recently implemented features and improvements.
