Finally I made it. Now, RFID reader is detecting the RFID card presented to it. Then a python module running on RPI is constantly listening to RFID. Once RFID card is detected, the code is updated to a JSON file. This JSON file is hosted in local host. FlutterFlow platform gets this JSON by posting GET request to the local host URI. Then FlutterFlow validates from Firestore database and gets relevant data to be displayed and shows it on monitor.
Things to improve.
- Refresh rate is currently around 30 secs. This needs to be reduced to 5 to 10 secs. i.e the time it takes for the data to show up once RFID card is presented by user.
- I should make the hardware cheaper by eliminating RPI if possible!

Yay! after a prolonged workout with multiple options, I am able to get the FlutterFlow code run in another laptop(eventually it could be handled as web service) and it shows the data from RPI which has the RFID connected. Hmm, did not think it would be such a tough fight with RPI to run Linux version of FlutterFlow.

I am trying to package Linux version of app from Flutterflow into RPi. Couldn't succeed. Seems no technical help is available to progress. Spending last 2 days on the same!

Collaborated with my friends in school. Got RFID that is in working condition. Now I could see that RFID reader/writer is able to read/write RFID cards.

Hi all, our project is to show up student activities, timelines of competitions on a display inside Atal tinkering Labs. Using RPI and RC522 for RFID read/write. I started assembling them, but ran into problems as RFID reader/writer is not responding. Planning to take help from my friend Avinash / Manikanta.
