Achievement Unlocked: Docker

It occurred to me several months ago that I could build a Docker image for Mobiliaire to make it easy to grab and evaluate or use. Problem was, I was very unfamiliar with Docker and struggled to grok how it works. Got frustrated and put it aside. I picked it back up today and got a dev environment running w00t! I still need to work on a prod or close-to-prod build, but hey, progress!

Yard Sale and More Python

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.

Ship Directly to Discord

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.

PHP and CircuitPython

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.

Many lines written. Many lines removed

I fussed with my MagTag all day and got exactly nowhere with it. Well, it’s had a CircuitPython upgrade from 6.3 to 7.2. But otherwise, nada. Known-good sketches run fine. But it doesn’t like the new one I’m putting together. Jerk.
