more on @brewpi ver0.3

Hmm here’s the screen shot from this morning, the fridge without a beer in, just set to stay at 4.5 c

Capture of my greenpi

There are a couple of things to note..

  1. The beer sensor trace dropped out and didn’t restart.
  2. The Temperature box is Blanked
  3. When enabling the room temperature the graph doesn’t rescale and won’t go full scale even when refreshed.

This was captured using safari on my mac and I couldn’t see how to manipulate the graph, unlike when I looked at the Green BrewPi interface using my iPad, I could manipulate the graph to my hearts content, pinch, drag etc it worked fine, .. too much bias towards mobile devices ?

Tonight it’ll beTime for me to track down that commented out line in the Beer-chart.js file to re enable the range selector bars and possibly look to see why the beer sensor isn’t re enabled !

Update:

After looking through the code for the arduino the beer sensor will only get restarted if its in mode is beer (profile or constant) hmm i’d still like it to restart and log the beer temp !  Although maybe thats my autistic side coming out, if it’s stopped when it was going, get it going again even though it’s not really needed, I think i might have to see if I can live with that one…Although what if you want to log  in the off state to see what heat  gets generated by the yeast activity ? Maybe i’m pondering too much on the inconsequential  ! Oh Really?
