Hi Pascal,

no there is none. We planned to use the encrypted communication only between 
caretaker_instance(server) and caretaker_instance(client). The implementation is focused 
on security. So if you only want to display informations you could also get from the 
caretaker frontend adding a json webservice is ok for me. If you want to manipulate 
settings or  trigger testruns i strongly recommend to use the encrypted api instead. It's 
no rocket science just an ssl encrypted xml which contains operation-id and params.

On the other hand an optimized mobile web-frontend would do the job too. If you create 
such a css and template we could add this to the caretaker extension.

Regards, Martin
