Can a Raspberry Pi computer and a USB microphone stream live audio to a smartphone’s browser over wifi? No idea but we’re gonna find out.
Went and helped set up for an indoor fundraiser yard sale thing that is happening this weekend. A benefit is that you get first pick of the sale items. I came home with a decent amount of things. On the Python front, I got an emailer script running via Gmail SMTP, so now I can haz automated emails.
I added two new config sheets to my collection – one that does a majority of the work setting up a copy of my Inventory app, and one that, when done, will fully configure a dev environment for a php app I work on regularly. It’s so nice to be able to do the setup work once (while I’m authoring the config) and then once it’s done and tested I can use it repeatedly, as needed.
Today I wrote a python script that parses a Google calendar iCal feed and posts a list of events occurring in the next 7 days to a Discord server channel. I need to post that same information in a few other locations, so I can’t call it done yet.
I spent the last two days getting familiar with Django forms, formsets, and model-forms, and got another module added to the Mobiliaire app.
I’ve been studying up on writing automated software tests for a few weeks and finally sat down to try writing one today. Of the two I attempted to write, I got one to pass (testing a very simple function) and the other one never worked, and I’m scrapping the function it would test because I can live without it. I have two entire apps worth of code that was written without a thought about how to test it that I now need to write tests for. So, that’ll be fun. Okay, maybe not fun. But it’ll keep me busy.
My Multipass application has “lost” all of my VMs (they’re all still there) and refuses to acknowledge them even though I told it where they are. Brat.
I spent all day manually testing code before its handed over to actual users on a sandbox. Fixed some things that bubbled up. Added some more tickets for later. I’m gonna need a week-long nap when I’m done.
This web app I’m updating is now in the testing phase. And, back when I first wrote it, I was a baby dev and didn’t know about automated testing. Now I a) know about testing but not how to write tests, and b) don’t have time to both learn and write tests. So I’m manually testing everything.
My daytime php project is going well – I made a lot of progress on it today. My evening project of developing a python sketch for MagTag is also going well. I want it to use a connected PM2.5 particle sensor to show both the raw sampling data and calculated AQI values for PM 2.5 AT 24, 8, and 1 hour sample periods. So far it shows the raw data.
