I am home again from California, and my plants survived! This post is a collection of updates on some of my projects that I have posted about here on my blog before.
I have started coding on Chunky again, and I tried livestreaming some of my Chunky coding on Twitch. I streamed last evening from 20:00 to 24:00 CEST, and I’m planning to stream around the same time the rest of the week. Feel free to ask questions in the chat if you join my stream!
In Chunky I am working on the UI code, trying to finish up the new JavaFX UI. Here is a screenshot from last evening while I was working on a new Color Picker dialog:
My current Chunky development priorities are:
- Finish the new JavaFX UI.
- Add support for Minecraft 1.10 blocks.
- Add support for custom block models.
- Plugin system.

My automatic plant watering system was a success. My plants were completely alone in my apartment for about 5 weeks, and the watering system kept them alive. Here is the moisture graph from one of my plants:
I made a timelapse video of my plants using a Raspberry Pi camera. The video shows one image per day, taken at the same time of day, and the images cover about one and a half month of real time. My fiancée came home and moved the camera a bit at the end of the video.
As mentioned I was in California for work again this summer. Here are some pictures:
