Here at Pachube we’re great for devices but not so much for people. Whilst our API is a good fit for sensors, Arduino’s and the like our website is not an enthralling place to be.
We’re putting a tremendous effort into changing this around and once we’re ready it’s going to open up Pachube’s possibilities for everyone.
Many of our recent discussions have revolved around how we open up the wealth of data contained within Pachube, and make it more accessible whilst engaging our users.
However behind that static façade there really is a tremendous amount going on thanks to the multitude of devices and sensors plugged into us.
For this week’s hackday I built a realtime counter that just shows how much information is coming into our system at any moment. It’s using our Socket Server.
Note: The counter only includes public feeds and each update could include any number of individual datastream updates, so the figures are rather conservative.
