ThingSpeak

SG ThingSpeak as Original ThingSpeak, customized for SmartGround.eu Project and relased with the same Licence (GPL v3)

ThingSpeak is an open source “Internet of Things” application and API to store and retrieve data from things using HTTP over the Internet or via a Local Area Network. With ThingSpeak, you can create sensor logging applications, location tracking applications, and a social network of things with status updates.

In addition to storing and retrieving numeric and alphanumeric data, the ThingSpeak API allows for numeric data processing such as timescaling, averaging, median, summing, and rounding. Each ThingSpeak Channel supports data entries of up to 8 data fields, latitude, longitude, elevation, and status. The channel feeds support JSON, XML, and CSV formats for integration into applications.

The ThingSpeak application also features time zone management, read/write API key management and JavaScript-based charts from Highslide Software / Torstein Hønsi.

Support for ThingSpeak is available on the ThingSpeak Community site which features a Blog, Forum, Documentation, and Tutorials.

Before You Begin

1. Install Ruby, RubyGems, Rails 3, git, and a database like MySQL
2. Download the application using git: git clone git@github.com:iobridge/thingspeak.git
3. Change to the thingspeak directory and install the appropriate gems: sudo bundle install

Configuration

1. Set your database configuration file at config/database.yml (see config/database.yml.example for an example)
2. Create the database: rake db:create
3. Create the database tables: rake db:schema:load

Run The Application

1. Start the server: rails server

Your application will now be running at http://localhost:3000/

Changing Application Text

Make changes to config/locales/en.yml
To avoid errors, please ensure your lines start with spaces, not tabs.
Set your application name using the ‘application_name’ key.

(Optional) Memcached Support and Rate Limiting

Please see our official memcached fork

(Optional) HTTP GET Support

By default the application will accept channel updates via GET or POST. To only allow POSTs, change the value of GET_SUPPORT found in config/initializers/constants.rb

(Optional) Email Setup

Set your domain, user_name, and password in config/environment.rb
Also set your password reset link in app/controllers/mailer.controller.rb line 14 (and uncomment the line)
