Plugins & Plugin Development / Pretty Data Plug-in
« Last post by parkerc on August 18, 2018, 05:47:09 pm »
I couldnt find anything within this child board or a dedicated thread elsewhere about the Pretty Data plug-in.

So when I stumbled across a post about it elsewhere , I thought I?d create something here to help others..,45624.msg312448.html#msg312448

I came across the dofile () and loadfile() options and thought they were pretty cool, in many ways they seems similar to using ?require? etc.

Is there something wrong with dofile() or loadfile() with Vera, as I?m just curious why they do not seem to be used widely on this forum as a way to load a chunk of code ?
openLuup / Re: openLuup: Data Historian

Hi akboer,

I've just installed the latest development release (18.8.10) of openLuup to use Data Historian.
I've set the startup attribute to the right directory, and after a reboot it nicely creates all the Whisper files.

I can also see the logging in the console, it shows graphs. However, the Whisper files don't seem te get updated so it seems it's only logging to memory. This is my startup log:

Code: [Select]
2018-08-18 22:45:28.345   openLuup.historian:: starting data historian
2018-08-18 22:45:28.345   openLuup.historian:: using on-disk archive: /etc/cmh-ludl/history/
2018-08-18 22:45:28.346   openLuup.historian:: Graphite schema/aggregation rule sets: 15/3
2018-08-18 22:45:28.346   openLuup.historian:: disk archive storage rule sets: 9
2018-08-18 22:45:28.346   openLuup.historian:: using memory cache size (per-variable): 1024

Anything I can try?

There's a quick hack to fix this here:,83034.msg387377.html#msg387377

but I thought this had been fixed in the latest code.  Maybe it's only in the development branch at the moment?

More info here:,83034.msg409695.html#msg409695

It took a while but I finally found a 'round toit' but now I'm stuck.
Everything looked OK when I installed openLuup but when I try to access it through a browser I get:

error in callback [lr_ALTUI_Handler] : [string "L_ALTUI.lua"]:2307: attempt to index local 'tbl' (a nil value)

I'm on a Pi 2 b+ that I just set up from scratch and I'm installing into /etc/cmh-ludl/ which is owned by root/root with permission of 777.  I tried running the install as pi and I also tried using 'sudo lua5.1 openLuup_install.lua' so it installed as root.  Same thing.

Here's the output from the install:

pi@raspberrypi:/etc/cmh-ludl $ sudo lua5.1 openLuup_install.lua
openLuup_install   2017.03.28   @akbooer
getting latest openLuup version tar file from GitHub...

pi@raspberrypi:/etc/cmh-ludl $ Sat Aug 18 14:43:51 2018 device 2 '    openLuup' requesting reload

pi@raspberrypi:/etc/cmh-ludl $

The output of the install looks like your example except both device 2 and 3 request a reload.  Not sure where to go from here.

Thanks for your previous help,

Welcome to the HA fold. You'l find there is a learning curve on building automations but there's a pretty good community. Find the Template Editor and it will save you a lot of time. It's built into the program....
well, I got my RPi and it's up and running hassos.
I added the vera as a controler and it discovered all my "stuff"
While the documentation is fairly clear, it also assumes a higher level of understanding of their code.
I'm having trouble creating from scratch the equivalent of a scene. I think if I had an example of HA/Vera code I could figure it out.
Mike can show ab example of your code with vera devices.
basicly as and example I'd like to turn on a light for 5 minutes after a door is opened and then off agaon and run this HA code along with the light coming on

so when door is opened
Kitchen_Door 1
Vera Device Id  65

turn on this light
Vera Device Id  14

run this code
   playkitchenopen: curl ""

I'm looking on how to expose the scene code HA has imported from Vera.

How would one hardwire the motor? I'm gutting out sunroom and want to get the electrician to pre-wire the windows to accommodate the motor.
