I have just been alerted about a problem with new raspberry pies. There is a change of memory from Samsung to hynix and this require new drivers/kernel that is not included in my latest image.
More information about the subject here:
I will try to find time to make a new image. Are there any other software I should include? I am planning on owfs an a decent xpath library for python and disable innodb in MySQL but asking if you want something more.
I just checked the download statistics and total downloads are right now at 999. So who will be the one that takes the 1000:th download. Probably no one can tell as that download might as well happen as I write this.
Anyhow it is a truly amazing experience with the reception of my software over the past 5 months and all the kinds words I get about it. Besides the visitor/download statistics that gives numbers that is also encouraging. Normal days I have about 100 unique visitors and some 300-400 page views.
I am thinking about creating some kind of usage feedback on actually installed systems but I am also very reluctant to do so because of personal integrity reasons, what do you think?
Today I pushed one feature and some bug fixes. For details see the bit bucket page linked from my homepage.
The feature is something that I hope will make quite a few happy. It is a plugin that fetches and parses data from files/urls at a regular interval.
There are several way to parse the fetched data for example line and characters at that line, scanf or regular expression and even a subset of the xpath standard.
With this functionality I hope you will be able to integrate easier with other systems. I guess this will be very useful for OWFS users out there. But it will probably make it possible to download your own temperature data as well.
Good luck and good night.
Bug reports and feedback very welcome.
I just added a very critical bug fix to the tellduslive feature. If you have updated your system in the last couple of days to get Telldus live functionality I urge you to update again. Otherwise you will run into crashes, even if you think it works fine right now.
This new year brings some new functionality to automagically. Some days ago I added functionality to the remote to see and modify coming events. I hope to also be able to add support to schedule new events directly from the remote page.
To be clear, I don't create new images every time I make additions and bug fixes so I recommend to use the update functionality from the web interface on regular intervals. There is also an update.sh script if you log on by SSH but that is not the recommended way to update. It is not allways updated and you may run into file permission problems.
This year I hope to bring in some new functionality:
User friendly support for CEC commands
More data upload/download functionality
... (what do you wish for?)
Happy new year!
***EDIT *** This is only valid for the old debian image that dont have hardware floating point support. For newer images (rasbian) you have to compiöe from source.
It is realy simple to install a Tellstick on the Raspberry PI. For the one that is interested the following will install everything you need on a clean debian from the Raspberry PI downloads section.
sudo apt-get install libftdi1
Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://download.telldus.com/debian/ stable main
sudo apt-key add telldus-public.key
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install telldus-core
There have been a couple of questions/request to include weather data (temperature) from online sources like yr.no or temperatur.nu, yesterday I did an implementation of integration towards temperatur.nu but I have some concerns about their (and yr.no) terms of usage. I.e. they require that there logo/link is displayed next to values from them and that would be very hard to fulfill if I integrate it so that it is a variable that is updated. However I just want to let you know that I am working on this and I hope I will be able to present a solution that is acceptable with regards to the weather services terms of usage.
