I am new to Particle and eager to start learning. My timeline of project started with Arduino, ESP8266, Omega2, Raspberry Pi Zero W and now Photon from Particle.
My question is: Raspberry Pi Zero W is a small linux computer, so when I run a script (sh) or a python script, I can either use the command line using a terminal and type the script name and so on. If I want the script to run always, I use crontab to execute such script. Now, when using Particle web IDE, and you write a script, and upload it, does the script be run always or not? If so, can it be stop, if so, how? Can you upload several scripts via the web IDE and upload it to the Raspberry Pi? What about replacing such script with another one in case only one script can be run a one time?
Can you still use the terminal and issue linux commands and run scripts after uploading scripts using the Particle web IDE?
Can someone shed some light on these questions please?
Thank you in advance!
