Tim commented on my recent blog post about my automated plant watering system and asked if I could go into some more detail about the steps I went though to set up the software side of the project. The project used cube and cubism to make live charts of my chilli plant’s moisture levels available over the Internet. In this post I will go though a step-by-step guide explaining how I set up the software that powered these charts. I’ve tried to write the article for readers with no previous experience of server administration or software development, but I have thrown it together faily quickly, so if anything below is unclear, then do post a comment below and I will try to fix it.
