Testing SteemPi

in steemdev •  last year

Status: Its working!

This post is to test if new comments on my Steemit account will turn ON the LED light of the SteemPi project i'm working on.

STEEMPI Introduction



...Entering a first testing fase of the project and i need a post for testing purpose
(instead of im commenting with "test", "test2" "test3" etc. on not related posts, i can now make and receive your test comments for the project on this post)


You can help testing by leaving a comment on this post,
If i'm near my computer and pi... , and see you light up my day/ the LED, i will leave a reply on your test comment to verify it worked.

Interesting! Would it be easy to hook up PI2 to electric motor? This could be used in many ways!

(Worked, the LED turned on! :) )

Thanks for your reply and test message, Was thinking to combine this with one of my (tracked) robot projects yesterday.

its possible, and not to difficult to connect a relay and switch on and off motors,
(with motor drivers it becomes a bit more difficult, but will give the option of variable speeds)

Thanks for lighting up my led/day!

Hopefully you post more about your project. I've never played around with rasperry myself but I'm very interested in ways of interacting with physical world through technology. Seems like public blockchain like Steemit and Rasperry to read it would be cheap and fast way to achieve it.

Thanks for your reply, Yesterday i was thinking about combining this project with one of my robotic (tracked) projects.

It is intriguing what the possibilities are, some are almost not imaginable.

Cool. This could be utilized in so many ways! Smartlocks that Steemians could open, or only approved users or those with high enough SP or rep.

the script at this moment is not to advanced, but i will improve the project and try to make it more functional and easy to set up. Many things could be possible

(i cant do all by myself but this is a start)

Do you want more earnings?

By doing things above you will give us more STEEM POWER (SP) to give you more earnings.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you :)

  • update-
    first few test worked but now the source (https://streemian.com/rss/@techtek/replies) is not giving updates anymore so im figuring out whats happening, and maybe need to find a other source to work with.

Amazing! I like your project! Share with us how did you make it! Followed you!

·

Thanks for your reply,

For this test i'm using Curl to get the (rss streemian) website and put it in a file to compare with a second file of the the website.

If there is a difference in the two files the Led is turned on.

i also strip out all numeric values because this gave a lot of falls notifications.

Please follow me for more updates, in my previous posts about the SteemPi project you can find more technical details of what i am trying to do and am doing to makes this work.

Help and feedback very welcome.

worked immediately but my comment is late :p

cool,. using raspberry PII? I use beaglebone black.i will resteem ur post

·

take some pictures and post it....

·
·

·
·
·
·
·
·

u should just make a post with these pictures. that would attract more upvotes, thats how people make money here.You have real work to show!!!

·
·
·
·

(worked)

i have multiple post with many pictures but only some get viewers and upvotes...

if someone would look into the hours i put into this project it would feel extra strange about this not reaching more people. but i keep going :)

And i'm member for just 30 days...

Thanks for your reply and im planning/thinking for my next post to do a Dtube video it explains the project in a more visual way. and only will show what it does for someone. (no nerdy things that can confuse just function)

·

·

Thanks for appreciating my work and seeing the efforts

·
·
·
·

Actually, i will try to make a post with the just the pictures no tech

·

Thanks thanks :) yes with pi 2.

its working now and for around 20 min and counting, and notifications seems to be fast and stable

(This test makes use of the Streemian RSS feed Thanks @xeroc for the Streemian RSS feed)

From one coder to another, have a great day! 🤓

Worked! thanks and following you

Very cool! testing, testing, 1,2,3!

·

Sorry, i was not there that moment to see you light up the LED and my day, maybe it didn't work i'm not sure, please feel free to try again.

Nice initiative! I upvote and re-esteemed. Is it only on python?

·

Worked thanks for your reply

·

And thanks for resteeming, At this moment it uses curl and sed in a bash script.

Yay. Awesome Work. Keep up the good work. When I have time I will give it a try.

·

I just followed you and checked your profile, do maybe you have some (coding) suggestions for the project? Would Joomla be nice to have for the web-interface? Other makers of apps, software and websites could make a module that the end users can easily import into there (joomla) webinterface.

·
·

I was very unhappy with all solutions out there. therefore i developed my own management system specialized for web applications. The 1.1 version is just before release, so personally i would use my own system :D

If I would recommend another system it would be wordpress or drupal. The communities are bigger than from joomla. Documentation is a little bit better and the most users know these two systems.

Coding Suggestions are difficult. I do not know how professional you want to do your steempi
:-) ... And I do not know what your personally goal is. If you want to improve your coding skill, you can read coding standards like PSR-1 and PSR-4. In addition, composer installation routines would be quite helpful.

If you want to make your steempi more professional, you should think about modularization. Do you have a github repository? So i can keep an eye on it :-)

Thanks, you just light u my day :) !

that's a super slogan ... 😀 😀

:) Thanks for doing :)

Wow, cool project:D tip!

Wow thanks for lighting up my day and sending me some tips!

Cool! Test... :)

Thanks, I was not next to the Pi that moment, but you could try again :p

·
·

:) Trying again.

I've played with Arduino and Olimiex a bit before. Not really sure how the PI is different from those.

·
·
·
·
·

The Pi can run Linux with a graphical user interface it has USB and, RJ45 network connection, HDMI, audio jack.

Identical features with Arduino: GPIO pins, usb power, expansion shields, big user base, a lot of fun projects, cheap.

Boards starting from 5 to around 40 dollar, SteemPi most likely also will run on other Pi (clone) boards. (they need to be using / be compatible with the wiringpi library)

·
·
·
·
·
·

so you would say the Pi is better than Arduino?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

i use Pi for things i need USB and internet acces and more power.
Arduino for "simpeler" IOT applications

Upvoted!! and lighting up your room!! lol Excellent ideas you have!!

·

Thank you for lighting up my day :)
