jcw (father of the Jeenodes) is still working on his home monitoring/home automation system – and he is moving it in a interesting direction, partially along the same lines as I have been (slowly) moving my own monitoring system.
He’s now moved a significant portion on by using Go – something I have not looked at yet.
Here’s where I’m headed with all this:
Flow is the foundation for it all: dataflow programming is – p e r f e c t – for real-time apps such as HouseMon and Tosqa. The fact that it’s called 0.1 just reflects my inexperience with it all. But there’s no way back. There are lots of “worker” components in the 0.1 release already. They don’t really belong there, but it was easy to develop them that way. These will be moved to JeeBus soon – due to the registry, this won’t affect the program code (just a few “import” lines).
The other thing which hasn’t changed is “developer mode”. This is a setup now in JeeBus, which adds node.js and “gin” to the mix, to support live reload while making changes. I’ve briefly stepped away from it while hacking on Flow, but will definitely bring it back to the foreground once HM/JB and client-side development enter the picture again.
