Links to help me monitor my Zeverlution PV converter locally

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/18

Since it’s my data, I’d rather be in control myself, so here are some links that will help me going around the Zevercloud solution I posted about yesterday.

Some other interesting links of software supporting Zeversolar devices:

Note that PVoutput.org does have native ZeverCloud updating using the ZeverSolar API key:

But these might help me:

Reminder to self: make a list of URL suffixes to show branch diagrams of repositories

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/18

One of the BitBucket features I like a lot is that in the commit history, you see the branches involved in a nice diagram on the left side of the commits: https://bitbucket.org/pypy/pypy/commits

BitBucket used to be popular to host public repositories, but from a public perspective, they are on the decline for that (they even removed the [once popularbitbucket.org/explore page and [WayBack] will not re-introduce it).

Right now, only major git based hosters still have explore pages:

So it makes sense to see where they provide diagrams of branches, so here are some examples to go from a project to the graph:

Never ever put OutpugDebugString in code that is meant to run on production systems

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/18

I just saw this code in the Delphi RTL enabled for RELEASE builds of the procedure TThreadPool.TQueueWorkerThread.Execute; code:

{$IFDEF MSWINDOWS}
    OutputDebugString(PChar(Format('Thread Exiting: %d', [ThreadId])));
{$ENDIF}

Never, ever do this.

If you code review code that contains it: ensure it has some kind of compile time DEBUG conditional around it.
