Weather TL;DR

What is it? Weather TL;DR is a simple weather forecast webapp using data from the weather.gov system. This was an experiment to see if I could write a simple webapp to tell me the current weather forecast in a compact and simple page. How do you use it? Usage it pretty simple. It will ask you if it is ok to use your location data. If you don’t agree then it presents a simple form where you can manually enter a latitude and longitude in decimal form.

clortho is a very simple key/value server written using python 3.4 and aiohttp key namespace is per-client IP address, and there is no authentication.

Hygrosens manufactures a number of sensors for measuring temperature, humidity, light level, pressure. Their devices use a common serial data format for a wide variety of sensors, include 1-wire sensors from Dallas. This library reads the output from Hygrosens devices and passes it to a calling function as a hash. I have included an example that outputs the readings in human readable format, and another that stores the readings into a MySQL database.

NASCAR Countdown Dashboard Widget

This is a simple countdown widget for the OSX Dashboard. It is a pure javascript implementation so it will also run inside a web browser as you can see above.
