I’ve published my first library to PyPi! It is a simple utility function you can use in micropython to build menus for LCD displays. I was used to the Liquid Crystal and Liquid Menu while developing on an Arduino. When I made the switch towards micropython I saw no such thing existed. But having a statemachine like menu is quite easy in Python and I wanted to abstract it a bit into a library, this way it is easier to use for other people!

Inspired by a few blogs that I follow I wanted to share my current setup for Python projects that I use personally. This setup might vary based on clients that I have, but for my own projects this is what I mostly use: iTerm, zsh & oh-my-zsh with my own coloured theme.

Today marks something special. Ten years ago, inspired by Buster Benson I started taking a picture at 8:36pm every day.

In this part of building my own automated brewery I want to focus on something I have never done before. And that this: Designing my own PCB (printed circuit board) is something I was fascinated in for some time, but I always thought of it as somthing very complex and hard to learn. Luckily I got introducted to EasyEDA by my brother and spend a few afternoons watching video tutorials. After rummaging around a bit and some frustration I ordered my first board.

In the first part, I looked at the frame/enclosure for everything that we need to automate my own brewery. In this part I wanted to show which parts are on the inside based functionality. but first a picture of the enclosure while it’s being build: The enclosure contains the following things: Backside: 230V IN: Voltage in, the main power supply for all devices in the enclosure 230V OUT: Switched by the solid state relay based on the PID algorithm RJ12 Female connecter: Input for the temperature sensor that is used by the PID algorithm as input Frontside: Traffic-light interface: lights to indicate what is on.
