Welcome to the mySmartGrid Developer Wiki! Please use this wiki to document features, share how-tos, and brainstorm additional development tasks. If you develop code on your own, we suggest that you use github for version control. Please put a link to all external repositories into this wiki.
If you want to contact the developers, please use the mySmartGrid development mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org
Another way to contact the team is using IRC - we have a channel #mysmartgrid on freenode.
The next elektro:camp(«2013.04») will be in Kaiserslautern! Please see EC1304-Coordination for more information.
Our standards-based, open-source home automation system is now (almost) available. Each device has an unique IPv6 address and provides excellent interfaces for hacking (both hardware and software). Learn more on the HexaBus page.
We list the items we are currently working on here: FeatureArrivals
The new features deployment procedure is described here: DeploymentProcedure
Lessons we learned during the deployment of devices: LessonsDeployment

Please note: The Chumby comes with an operating system built-in that needs to be registered with Chumby.com before allowing Flash-based code to be executed. Whenever Chumby.com is down, as a side effect, the Chumby won't normally boot with the operating system delivered by the manufacturer. Please consider using the new image including the Qt-based code.

Mobile devices need a generic mechanism for exchanging configuration information. We need to develop a webservice that allows us to exchange this information securely and easily. One way would be:
How to use a Volkszaehler setup for logging to both Volkszaehler and mySmartGrid servers.
