Based in Stirling, HBW Coffee is a speciality coffee shop offering coffee, donuts, and vegan and vegetarian food. Their owner, Conor, has worked tirelessly to design a food and drinks menu that meets the needs of his customers. In this interview, I chat with Conor about his role as owner of HBW Coffee, what his typical day at work looks like, and how he designed the HBW food and drink offering. I hope you enjoy our chat.
In parts one and two of this series, we built a program to monitor the moisture level in a plant and a program to convert our readings into a chart. The final step is to create a web page that lets us see our chart and download our logging file. That’s what we are going to cover in this tutorial. If you have not already read parts one and two, I’d recommend doing that before continuing. You can find links to these tutorials at the end of this post. Without any further ado, let’s get started.
One of my favourite types of blog posts to read are “Weeknotes.” These are blog posts where people share some details about their week. I like reading these posts because they afford me the opportunity to learn about some of the things that go on in the day-to-day lives of the bloggers I follow.
A couple of months ago, I started to work on my own webmention receiver. Instead of relying on webmention.io, a service commonly used to receive webmentions, I wanted to challenge myself to create a receiver from scratch. To do so, I realised I would have to read, understand, and interpret a W3C specification, something I had not done up until the point of deciding to work on a webmention receiver. While I knew there would be challenges, I wanted to take control over how I received webmentions and build my own service.
In the last part of this series, I walked you through how to create a program that logs the moisture levels in your plants. If you haven’t already read that tutorial, I’d recommend going back to it before reading on. If you have, you are ready to advance onto the next stage of your journey toward building a plant monitor dashboard: showing your plant data on pretty charts. That is the topic of this tutorial.
