While this is a temporary solution, it might be what's easiest for now - you can add a text element to your dashboard to show when it's offline.

I would like to have a selectable time axis in line charts without editing the dashboard.
Right now I created several dashboards with different time scales for each topic.
Radio buttons on the right would be really handy, or a drop down list on the bottom of the line chart

How about an RGB LED that takes 16-bit (Adafruit GFX) or 24-bit RGB info, plus a "blink rate" expressed as 0-255 units (0 is always on, 255 is blinking rapidly, figure out what the intermediate values mean)

Show min/max values on the dial indicator ( as an arc in the outer ring) with a reset button

Settable hi/low danger values on the dial indicator, which synchronize with triggers or autogenerate them

IFTTT applet icons and status

Data rate vs limits / throttling mountain chart


Great setup - can't wait to see next versions come out!

We recently added an indicator block which may be similar to what you're asking for: https://io.adafruit.com/blog/notebook/2 ... rd-blocks/

I asked this as a question on Discord, but maybe it's a request:
Linechart for boolean and other discrete/integer values. The current one averages all the 1's and 0's over time which is nonsensical. I want a chart that looks like a square wave for booleans.

e.g. this is what my chart looks like for a motion sensor with a couple of scattered triggers in the night:

How about a text entry?
User would type arbitrary text, press "enter" and the contents would be published to a topic.

This would probably be easy to implement and allow things like arm/disarm codes for a security system (from a public dashboard)

The text block element does that, but it's not easily discoverable. The input field on it is "hidden", you can type right into it, and assign a feed to it.

Feature request- on line charts, give basic formatting options. Solid line, dashed line, dotted line, etc. Most importantly, give us the ability to set the color for each line.

Thanks!

Same indicator shows multiple levels of indication. In my case 3, ON, OFF, OUT green red yellow. I'm tracking NFC tag data for tools on a maintenance truck. 1st scan removes tool from truck (OUT) indicator goes red. 2nd scan returns tool to truck (ON) indicator goes green. Separate NFC tag takes tool away from truck (OFF, on loan to another truck) indicator goes yellow.

Could also be used as condition 1-70 indicator green, 71-85 indicator yellow, 86-100 red.

Allow multiple location feeds to the same map.

It would be wonderful to be able to post multiple locations to a map.

Also it would be advantageous to be able to send "waypoints" in addition to the current track-points.

Way points are not linked by a line, and perhaps have a different colour.

A Boolean Chart has been suggested. I want one too.
This should have a line that looks like a square wave changing between the binary values.
The Y axis should be capable of being labeled for the 2 states in text so you can name the 2 states.

A bonus would be to be able to stack up more than one binary data stream in the same chart, like a multi trace digital scope screen, and label them accordingly. The important theing here is that the timescales line up for the streams.

An alternate is to have the streams each in its own chart but have the timescales capable of being synchronized so that the events can be correlated.

You can see this 2 state chart looks nasty with the slopey lines. The last value should be maintained until the new value comes.

Another option would be to use the analog chart but make the data stay at the last value until a new value is obtained then step to the new value as a chart option. THis would do it too. Suppressing the decimal points on the 1/0 Y axis would also be needed.

Thanks

Just wanted to say that I, too, would like a Boolean Line chart. For values that are only 0 & 1, this type of chart would be much preferable to the line chart we have now.

Hey all -

I was thinking that a bar graph would be great, in addition to gauges. The gauges take up a bit of visual space, and it be great to have something more compact to show a value's status.

Also, a multi select, or drop-down selection, would be great: if I could pre-set a range of items and their values. Also, the option to add a 'submit' button, would be handy.

Thanks!
