Re: Thingspeak Plugin

I didn't even know that you could run your own Thingspeak server.

So, in modifying the plugin, I'm assuming that you changed this:
Code: Select all
f = httplib.HTTPConnection("api.thingspeak.com:80")
to this:
Code: Select all
f = httplib.HTTPConnection("YOUR_IP_ADDRESS:3000")
Were there any other changes that you needed to make? (It won't be possible for me to be able to test a local server...)

Thanks,
Dave

Re: Thingspeak Plugin

That was the only change I had to make.
I followed the linux install instructions to install on the OS X Lion MBP I have Indigo running on.
I don't like to be dependent to running stuff in the "cloud".

that is what I used to install in on the mac. I did not use the script, followed the steps manually.

Re: Thingspeak Plugin

Thanks BassMint. I'll have that functionality included in the next version. I think I will have each device use its own IP as you suggested--and may move the upload frequency setting to the device config as well--which would allow for each device to be truly independent.

Re: Thingspeak Plugin

@BassMint: I've uploaded a revised version of the plugin that will allow direct assignment of local IPs. I'm unable to test it myself, so would appreciate any bug reports if you find something fishy.

I didn't include individual update frequencies in this version because it's more of a non-trivial change. Still on the ToDo list, however.

Cheers,
Dave
