Posted 01-26-2017 at 08:26 AM by Dmitry_Slepov

About the Application
  • Keen.IO is a cloud platform that provides data collection and analysis services via the REST API. Keen offers SDKs for many programming languages, including browser-side JavaScript and Node.js.
  • In this tutorial we used Tibbit #30 (ambient humidity and temperature meter) for collecting environmental data and storing it on the Keen.IO server.

Simple Card-based Access Control

Posted 01-25-2017 at 07:00 AM by Dmitry_Slepov

The project lets you save user names and their ID codes into the database, as well as verify the cards you read against the records of the database. When you read a card which ID code matches any ID code from the database, the terminal "grants access" (the blue LED...

  • 7-segment indicators are reliable and cheap LED devices which can display decimal digits and some characters. Every segment of the indicator is monitored through an allocated input. To drive all these inputs from the LPTS, you need many wires (32 lines for a 4-digit display). A more pragmatic

Fast random recursive slideshow script

Posted 01-24-2017 at 10:45 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags slideshow

This is probably buggy and not well written, but it's faster than some other CLI image slideshow tools such as feh [citation needed], as it doesn't try to scan the whole folder tree for image files first, but it only has a directory list cache file (txt stored on $HOME, which may be a little bit slow to build for the first time, but not as much), picks one randomly, lists (ls) the image files into a cache file (txt on /dev/shm), and makes one randmoly into the wallpaper (if hsetroot is able to do...
