Description

NEWPRINT/Multi is a wifi-enabled "virtual" printer adapter for TRS-80 (Model 1, 3, 4/4P) and Apple IIe (with Grappler+ printer card). *Other vintage computers may work with NEWPRINT but only TRS-80 and Apple IIe have been tested at the moment. NEWPRINT connects to your computer's printer port and your local wifi network to send printer output to any device that supports a modern browser (iPad, Desktop PC, Mac, etc.).

Requires: 2.4Ghz wifi network. Apple IIe usage requires a Grappler+ printer card.

The NEWPRINT web interface can show printer output as plain text or hexadecimal values but does not (currently) understand special printer control codes used by word processor application packages (ie.
BOLD, multiple font sizes, Form Feed, etc.).

By default, when in ASCII or DOS modes any non-ASCII (ie. printer control code) characters are hidden. When in ASCII mode you have the option to show these characters either as hex {0E} or symbolic {LF} values.

After you enter your wifi credentials (SSID and password - see users guide below) the NEWPRINT web interface will be available from any browser in your local wifi network at:
newprint.local

NEWPRINT uses the standard HTML WebSocket API so you can even write your own web-based or desktop interface for displaying and processing NEWPRINT output.


Note: Power adapter and printed user manual are not included to keep prices low. See the PDF user manual below for more information. Printer cables are available as an optional add-on.
