excerpt from the blog post…

After collecting some photovoltaic data using PikoPy and a some readings from the residential meter it was time to put everything together. The data is collected by a couple of scripts triggered by a cronjob every five minutes.

$ crontab -l
*/5 * * * * python /home/solarpi/kostal_piko.py
*/5 * * * * python /home/solarpi/collect_meter.py
*/15 * * * * python /home/solarpi/collect_weather.py

The results are then written into a SQLite database. I chose SQLite over PostgreSQL for its lighter footprint on the Raspberry Pi. And since we will have no concurrent writes SQLite should be capable serving as a database backend.

The sole purpose of the web application is to fetch data from the database and render the results. I decided to use Flask, a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug and Jinja 2. For the Frontend I used the Bootstrap based SB Admin 2 Theme.
