Esperyd´s Raspberry PI project
#1
Raspberry PI Visualization and controller project

This iso is just a collection of good to have tools, to do automatization and visual graphs bundled into a package that will run on a Raspberry PI.
I have put together an ISO image with what i would consider a collection of tools that i think will do my day 2 day work easier working with my DIY solar system. It does not come bundled with fancy scripts that automatically takes all data from your equipment and draws up graphs. I do add some scripts that will start your work including some example dashboards and flows.
Software preinstalled
  • Grafana
  • InfluxDb
  • MySql
  • Graphite-api
  • Node Red
  • Mosquito MQTT
  • Apache (LAMP)
  • VNC server
  • Webmin
What do i need?
  • Raspberry PI 2 or 3
  • 8gb SD card (or bigger)
  • Screen/Mouse or some way to get hold of its network configuration. (It runs DHCP on wired interface)

Download link of the current ISO: check my link above. 

Feel free to ask questions below!

Korishan: Hmm no idea? What web-browser? Version?

There is no special plugin on it that should block that but javascript is javascript...

Wim: Thanks! Its not added in that version. There is ongoing work go sort and make sure _all_ parameters are sent over. Will update here as soon as its done and then you can download that new version to run.

Daniel, is it possible to share the scripts in a separated form, specially the pcm60.js?
I already have a raspberry pi with influx and grafana and node red and would like to try to connect it to the PCM60x without needing to get the iso, burn it on a new flash SD card.
And do you know if this script will work when connected with a USB FTDI / FT232RL converter to the PCM60x?
Thanks for your help and great work.

The script is just a copy from another member here on the forum: http://secondlifestorage.com/t-pip4048-r...db-grafana

i have though just modified it to get it working with USB as well. I dont have this script available outside the iso right now but will do that when I upload nexte version.
Im working on a generic tool for the MPP series that will handle the PIP series including the PCM and the MPI series. Will though take some time before thats is available.

I can put them up later on when i get my gitlab working again...
