Hello Again All.
I am starting a new project soon. It will be fully documented some where online when it is completed.I shall let all you fello nerds know !
Basically my idea is a game powered by Either a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino and the desired features are.
- To input a name on a webpage and store in a database (Ideally on the Pi).
- Gather GPIO readings and store them in the database.
- Display the name and the GPIO data in real time on a web page with Apache or something compatible with raspberry pi
Scope of the game
Basically what I would like to do is take a reading ( Digital for now) from raspberry pi or arduino and store this in some sort of data base and in real time display it on a web page, and also be able to look up previous game scores later. I also plan to make this multi player probably settle for two players.
So I think I will use a Raspberry Pi for this project but depending on the method ill use anything. Ive both a Pi 3 and an Arduino. I can have the raspberry pi controlling the arduino either.
My main idea was turn the raspberry pi into a access point with a Apache web server to display the desired data.
To get the data I was thinking of using python to detect the I/O pins and some how throw them into a data base and then in real time display them to a webpage.
I do know their is a program or a script to allow python to interact with a web page , I do forget what the name of it is I briefly used it and I dont think it will work but I do have more testing to do.
I am not asking any one to do the project for me but would really appreciate if any one with some experience on making this sort of interface to give some guidance or a few headings I could look up.
Im pretty unsure on what to be searching for the particular term.
I am able to set up the access point on the pi with apache and have web design experience.
I can use the GPIO pins in python .
I just dont know how to store and update in real time.
Again any guidance is appreciated !!
I also only have one post a day for now
Thanks So Much !!
