  1. Multiple temperature sensors (DS18B20) graphed from one Pi

    I'm wanting to have multiple temperature sensors from one Pi sending temperature readings to one graph. This will create a graph with a number of lines showing the trend for the different sensors.

    • Getting average of data

      I also requested for it. But if we may get the average value of a recorded data set it could be nice.
      (for examle: we have 4 record 10 12 13 11, i need a gauge which gives the average of these vaules (10+12+13+11)/4 then we get a new record 12, our data set will become, 10 12 13 11 12, the average is (10+12+13+11+12)/5)

      • Associate an expression with a stream and execute the expression for each new data value

        I would like to be able to create an expression, that would be associated with a particular stream, and would be executed every time a new data value is posted to that stream.

        This could be as simple as adding an offset to the value, or more complex like executing a formula.

          • Allow for a stream to be defined as the result of an expression where the input could be other stream values.

            I have a use case, where I am collecting to values, but what I would like to display is actually the result of something like:

            virtual stream = (2*value1 + value2 ) / 3

            • View Timestamp of cursor location when mousing over Tile

              I would like the ability to see the timestamp of the cursor's location when mousing over a visualization in Tiles. This would allow me to see both the current value of the cursor for that stream as well as the timestamp associated with that event value.

                • Set Bucket Load Timespan

                  It would be very useful to set a specific timespan of data to load when opening a bucket. This would prevent my larger, longer running buckets from continuing to load historical data that's not relevant most of the time for my visualization and analysis.

                        You can override the timestamp when you submit data. This will allow you to submit data with the actual timestamp it was taken (e.g. in the past). You can see details of the API at http://support.initialstate.com/knowledgebase/articles/590091-how-to-stream-events-via-restful-api. The timestamp can be in either ISO8601 format or epoch.

                        If you wanted to create a Python script that reads CSV data and streams it into a data bucket (so you can append this data bucket with live, real-time data), you can use a script like the one at https://github.com/InitialState/python_appender/blob/master/example_app/example_read_csv.py

                        You can stream in data with older timestamps at anytime into a data bucket and it will automatically be ordered correctly.

                          • Ability to rename tiles.

                            Meaning, if a device is renamed in ST it can be re-associated to the old device name in IS. Currently the only options is to create a new bucket with the new device names.

                                      • Ability to create a bucket through the web application

                                        I'd like the ability to create a new bucket inside the web app without having to use the events api. This would allow me to create a bucket to send events to from a separate service like IFTTT without having to create a bucket each time.

                                        • Support HTTP GET in streaming API

                                          Some devices can't set HTTP headers and are limited to HTTP GET. Please support such devices by accepting all parameters in a HTTP GET guery rather than headers and json in a POST.

                                            The API now supports using the HTTP GET verb for sending data. This is a-typical of HTTP REST style, but very convenient for many simple HTTP clients. Since GET requests cannot contain request bodies, you will have to supply data via url parameters. An example would be this:

                                            curl ‘https://groker.initialstate.com/api/events?accessKey=YOUR_ACCESS_KEY&bucketKey=YOUR_BUCKET_KEY&some_key=some_value&some_other_key=some_other_value’;

                                            This curl command doesn’t specify a verb action, and therefore uses the default HTTP GET verb. You could also paste this url into a browser and the browser will perform a GET which will send the data to that bucket.
