This is an extension/continuation from the blog post on how to create a basic Python webapp. In this tutorial we are going to go through how to integrate a Python Flask webapp in Bluemix with the Internet of Things Foundation in Bluemix with a Raspberry Pi and two sensors on the Raspberry Pi. The tutorial also uses Twilio to interact with the Raspberry Pi.
So what does this look like? Here is a simple architecture diagram.
Hey Y’all! Jeff here again, today we are going to be going through some really simple steps to get started deploying a simple hello world python app using Flask on Bluemix.
Flask is an awesome and really lightweight framework in Python to create powerful webapps. We are going to use it make a really simple hello world app in Python though.
In this post we are going to go through the written instructions on how to do it but if you prefer watching a video check out the video below.
Who doesn’t love some Ruby? Bluemix definitely loves Ruby on Rails! Sometimes running a Ruby on Rails app can be a little tricky, so I have included some tips and tricks for migrating your Ruby on Rails app to Bluemix. They will include:
Required gems Code tweaks Accessing external databases Deploying your app Required gems If you are using PostgreSQL you need to include pg. Sqlite3 is included to get local development working as well.
Part 2: Configuring the Raspberry Pi This is a continuation of Part 1 of Controlling home devices with Bluemix Internet Of Things If you haven’t read Part 1, please do that first…
In Part 1 we got the electrical work out of the way. We wired up the relay’s and connected the circuit’s. In this part of the 3 part series we will configure the Raspberry Pi to control the relay’s that we wired up in part 1.
The number of Internet connected devices is growing dramatically, it is expected to increase from 15 billon devices in 2015 to 40 billion devices in 2020. These devices make up something called the Internet of Things. These devices can be controlled remotely and interconnected.
While a lot of these devices can be connected to the Internet, most of them are “dumb” devices right now. To turn these “dumb” devices into smart devices you can use the Internet of Things to connect them to the cloud.
The State of the Union, a live broadcast that many Americans historically use as a tool to form opinions about the current political system, and gain insight from their Commander in Chief into the transparency of a system of checks and balances. What is more interesting is the thoughts and underlying feelings between the State of the Union. If we could figure out how the President is feeling or portraying himself, could we infer how the President will schedule and work with legislation and policy for the rest of the year?
Etherpad Lite is an awesome online collaboration platform. Multiple open source projects use it for collaboration. One of the most notable ones is the Openstack Project Openstack Etherpad. To help you navigate the setup, this post provides step-by-step instructions to get things running. You may have read that Etherpad is complicated to install in a PaaS and there really isn’t a comprehensive quick start guide for running Etherpad-lite in Cloud Foundry.
We are back at it again with some demos!!!
Did you ever wonder if you and your favorite celebrity would be compatible if you met?? I sure do! Or did you ever wonder how you could become a better leader, I sure do. Today you would have to go Google the person and analyze posts and articles about them and be a personality expert to see if you have personality traits in common.
Backed by popular demand this is a continuation of the post Building a Java EE app on IBM Bluemix Using Watson and Cloudant.
This post will detail how to build and deploy the app using IBM DevOps Services.
There is a bit of magic behind this, its called “The Deploy to Bluemix Button”…
Clicking the magic button below will setup the app using IBM DevOps services and deploy the whole application for you.
