IoT Made simple
An account, an API Key and you are good to go !
The idea behind Datasocks is to provide an easy way to connect, monitor and control multiple IoT devices without having to setup a web server and deal with networking.
- You want to get the temperature and the humidity level of your room to be sure that your plants will survive 🌱. You also want to be able to water them at any moment.
- For that you decide to go with a singleboard computer (like a Raspberry Pi) or an Arduino.
- Once done, you realise you need to setup a web server/app in your house,deal with opening your home network to the internet and the security issues that are implied to it.
Here's come Datasocks : After setting up Datasocks on a VPS (on Linode let's say 😉) with minimal requirements, generating an API Key for your device and embed it into a script into your device , you are good to go.
Your plants will thank you. 🌱😋
Thanks to Linode's Stackscript feature you can quickly setup an instance with datasocks pre-installed
The only thing to set up next is an .env file and start the docker compose process
docker-compose --env-file ./.env up
- Create and own multiple dashboards
- Create cards to display the last value of a metric
- Create graphs (Lineplot for now) to measure the evolution on a time period
- Create buttons to activate functions on your devices (Still in dev)
- Manage mutiple devices
- No need to setup a web server on the device itself and expose it to the Internet
- Bi-Directionnial communications
- Asynchronous system
- Backend using Django, DRF and Channels
- Frontend in vanilla js using Bootstrap and Chartjs
- Docker and Docker-compose
Github Repo : github.com/duranbe/datasocks
It's for now designed as a self-hosted and private application only, hence for now the support for only one admin user.
