Project Updates 2016-08-17

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:

  1. Finish the new JavaFX UI.
  2. Add support for Minecraft 1.10 blocks.
  3. Add support for custom block models.
  4. Plugin system.


Plant Watering 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:

Moisture - whole summer

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:
