Well now that I have a pi and a goal .. I have started my first project. I am going to be at least trying to make a voltage monitor / logger. I have come to need this tool a few times at work. Since anything commercial is too costly so ... here we go ...
Step 1: Hardware gathered
1 - raspberry pi (b)
1 - 32 gig SD
1 - 2.5 touch display
1 - Yocto-Volt ( http://www.yoctopuce.com/EN/products/usb-sensors/yocto-volt )
Have gathered all my hard ware including a 3 amp powered USB hub. I am planning to write my code in python using wxPython libraries. writing the code on my main linux pc and then coping it to my pi.
please bare with me it has been along time since I have written anything like this or much code at all.
... let the fun and games begin ...
Design for the gui done
Ok .. now the next bunch of fun install wxpython on the pi ... here is the guide I used ...
last step if running right now .. will make another update in about 8 hours when the build is done.
oh almost forgot .. had to resize the main form at the display is only 320x240 ... sized the form to 300x200.
