Google Visualization data source API in the house

WattDepot now has a minimal implementation of the Google Visualization data source API, via the Google data source library. It’s working with the table visualization (boring) and the annontated timeline visualization (nifty). There are still lots of wrinkles to be worked out, but I can input data into WattDepot via HTTP, and get it back out as custom XML or JSON via HTTP. Woot!

For the rest of the week, I will be working towards setting up a client on dasha that pulls Saunders Hall power data from BMO online periodically, and then sends that data to a WattDepot server. I will also get the timeline visualization working to the point that it can display the Saunders data.

Plans from last week:

  • Implement Google Visualization data source API
    • minimal version checked into repository
  • Upload demo distribution to Google Code site
    • not done, not quite ready for distribution
  • Add Energy resource to REST API document
    • not done, but clarified requirements with Philip
  • Add Carbon resource to REST API document
    • not done, but clarified requirements with Philip
  • Start implementing Energy resource
    • not done, actually will be implementing a Power resource
