A personal iPhone web application to monitor my energy usage. This application should help me to write down the current energy meters in the house at the beginning of each month: water, electricity, solar power and gas.
The application is named after Ottó Titusz Bláthy, the Hungarian co-inventor of the watt meter.
Bláthy is designed to run on Heroku. There are a few parameters it needs to be happy.
heroku config:add USER_MAILemail@example.com heroku config:add SECRET_TOKEN=some_random_string
Don't forget to activate the following free Heroku addons:
- Nightly Cron
- Sendgrid Free
- Single Bundle (optional)
Ideas to implement
- A crontab that sends an e-mail at the beginning of each month.
- Reporting functionality.
- Compare last month with the same month last year.
- Make this a hosted application with multiple users.
