Display live emoncms energy data on your desktop
Alexander Price @saelaenx has documented a neat setup where he uses Geektool on his Mac to pull his live energy data and current temperatures from emoncms. The data it's self comes from an emonTx, emonGLCD posted online with a NanodeRF.
It would be great to have a similar arrangement for Ubuntu Linux using open-source tools, that way I can have have the same on my desktop :-)
The same goes for an android widget to display my live energy data on my home screen...one for the future.
Great work Alex, read his full blog here and see below for a summary:
