  1. Plant Watering with Arduino - Part 2

    13 Jan 2013

    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.

  2. Documenting the JSON Schema of your Rest APIs

    24 Apr 2012

    Recently at work I have been looking at how to document our Restful APIs. After a chat with a couple of developers we had defined the following requirements we wanted from our restful API documentation:

    • We needed to be able to document the URIs, HTTP methods, querystring parameters.
    • We wanted to be able to specify a bit of descriptive text associated with each API call.
    • A tool embedded in the docs that allowed the reader to call the live deployed API would be a plus.
    • Being able to define the schema of JSON objects returned by the APIs was a must have.
