Measure pH with a low-cost Arduino pH sensor board
I recently bought an Arduino pH sensor kit for measuring pH value of my hydroponic setup, it cheap but has very little information/document on how to use it, so I decided to figure it out myself on how it works and how to use it. Continue reading "Measure pH with a low-cost Arduino pH sensor board"
Build an ESP32 Web Server and IR Remote
My TV remote control is corroded by leaking battery and no longer working reliably, so I decided to build my own TV remote control with an ESP32 that running as a web server and IR remote control so that I can uses my iPhone to interactive with it via web browser. Continue reading "Build an ESP32 Web Server and IR Remote"
Mount a hard disk to Raspberry Pi as root file system
For past 3 years this web site was running on a Raspberry Pi with a 16GB SD card. I have a couple of old hard disks with me, so I recently decided to replace the SD card of this web site's Raspberry Pi with a hard disk. Continue reading "Mount a hard disk to Raspberry Pi as root file system"
Using a Thermistor with Arduino and Unexpected ESP32 ADC Non-linearity
I recently accidentally bought 5 pieces of thermistor, so I tried it out on both of my Arduino and ESP32 modules, and I have surprise findings on both Arduino and enchanted unexpected ESP32's ADC linearity issue. Continue reading "Using a Thermistor with Arduino and Unexpected ESP32 ADC Non-linearity"
How Google Read Your Gmail?
If someone asking you to give him (or her) the key to your home so that this person can come in to your house to inventory what you purchased in exchange for a free service, will you accept it? That basically what Gmail is asking for... Continue reading "How Google Read Your Gmail?"
Shortest Path Algorithm Revisit with Golang
A Better way to install Golang (Go) on Raspberry Pi
I recently want to install Golang(Go) on my Raspberry Pi, and realised that the easy way to install Golang may not be the better way to install Golang on Rasperry Pi. Continue reading "A Better way to install Golang (Go) on Raspberry Pi"
Control Raspberry Pi GPIO using node-RED
I wrote about how to control Raspberry Pi GPIO via web browser without using web framework or full blow web server about a year ago, today I'd like to introduce you an easier way to control Raspberry Pi GPIO via browser using node-RED. Continue reading "Control Raspberry Pi GPIO using node-RED"
