• InfluxDB Studio

    InfluxDB Studio

    It feels great when someone uses something you made and thinks it’s good. Every now and then someone creates a pull request for the InfuxData.Net lib I made and have been maintaining. It’s sort of a nice confirmation of your efforts and makes you warm and fuzzy on the inside. :D

    Well, this guy named meverett recently made a few pull requests with fixes and some nice lib improvements AND then told me that he’s actually using the library to make an InfluxDB database management studio (sort of what SQL Management Studio is for SQL, but for InfluxDB)!

    I find the admin dashboard that comes with InfluxDB a bit too simplistic and buggy and was actually thinking about how useful it would be if only there was a proper management app for Influx. Well, the InfluxDB Studio does more than the web admin dashboard and works great. And it made me really happy! :D

    This is how it looks:

    Thanks for the great work meverett!

  • Contributing back – InfluxData.Net NuGet

    Contributing back – InfluxData.Net NuGet

    On project that I currently work on in Dovetail, we’re using the InfluxDb time-series database. And it’s a really cool thing to be working with.

    Recently we had to move to a newer version of InfluxDb and the library that we were using at the time became a bit stale and didn’t support the newest version of InfluxDb (v0.9.6) which we had to move to. So, partially out of necessity, and partially “because I can” and wan to, I decided to update the currently existing library and then re-release it as a NuGet package under a slightly different name.

    *drumroll* – the code for the InfluxData.Net NuGet is available on Github. It already had a few code contributions which is quite exciting. The whole codebase has been refactored, additional tests written and I believe that the codebase is now quite stable. I plan on expanding the library API to support most of the stuff that InfluxDb provides, and I also plan on implementing the API’s for other InfluxData products such as Kapacitor and Telegraf.

    If people keep using it in the future, I’ll consider it a success and it will make me happy. :)
