AmatYr

AmatYr is a personal weather station display software project.

The software is a modern HTML5 "single page app" using JavaScript to fetch data from SQL via JSON from Postgresql + Lua backend. Then the data is transformed into pretty visualizations by the brilliant (D3.js)[http://d3js.org] library, giving the data life!

Primary goal of the project is bringing modern and responsive design, suitable for desktop, tablet and mobile-sized screens. A secondary goal is just playing with new technology because it's fun :-) And I guess a goal is to display some pretty graphs and such for local weather!

Frontend Components

Backend Components

  • Openresty (nginx + luajit)
  • PostgreSQL

Getting weather data into SQL

The frontend is somewhat loosely coupled with the backend, but it fetches data via JSON from the backend, so to get data displayed it must be accessible in that manner. There's 3 different ways to achieve that. Use one of these methods:

  • Included with the project is a small python utility to read Davis Vantage .txt-logs and insert into SQL (davislogparser.py)
  • Inlucded with the project is a smal python utility to read the output from Weather Display Live and insert into SQL (wdparser.py)
  • Included is a patch (scripts/weewx-2.1.1.postgresql.patch) for (Weewx)[http://weewx.com] to be able to store data in PostgreSQL.

Installation of the frontend

  1. Clone this repostory
  2. Add bootstrap resources
  3. Add fontawesome resources
  4. Compile and install openresty, with LuaJit and Postgresql support. Grab source at Openresty

Run:

./configure --with-luajit  --with-http_addition_module --with-http_dav_module --with-http_geoip_module --with-http_gzip_static_module --with-http_image_filter_module --with-http_realip_module --with-http_stub_status_module --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_sub_module --with-http_xslt_module --with-ipv6 --with-http_postgres_module

And follow Openresty's own installation docs.

  1. Configure postgresql
  2. Configure the virtual host for nginx like this:

    luapackagepath '/home/yr/amatyr/?.lua;;';

    server { listen *:80; server_name yr.no;

    set $root /home/yr/amatyr/;
    root   $root;
    access_log /home/yr/amatyr/access.log;
    error_log /home/yr/amatyr/error.log;
    
    

    location /api { lua_code_cache off; content_by_lua_file $root/pgrouter.lua; } location /static { root $root; }

    location / { try_files $uri @lua; } location @lua { lua_code_cache off; content_by_lua_file $root/amatyr.lua; }

    }

  3. Install the resty postgresql driver from https://github.com/azurewang/lua-resty-postgres One simple way to do this is put the postgres.lua in the default openresty folder:

    wget -O /usr/local/openresty/lualib/resty/postgres.lua https://github.com/azurewang/lua-resty-postgres/raw/master/lib/resty/postgres.lua
