Bulding front-end assets

Run npm install to install all required npm modules, then gulp to rebuild all front-end assets.

If you make changes in non-minified JS assets, you must run gulp to rebuild minified versions.

Metrics database

Metrics are currently stored in Influxdb by the scripts in kika-info-bus. Example queries:

curl -i -G '' \
  --data-urlencode "db=status" \
  --data-urlencode "q=SELECT * FROM temperatures"
curl -i -G '' \
  --data-urlencode "db=status" \
  --data-urlencode "q=SELECT * FROM landevices"

For the whole query language see the influxdb documentation.

Open/closed status is available at (regex for ^status: ...$), but this might also be included in the influxdb TBBD.
