Balena’s wifi-connect – easy wifi for Raspberry Pis

When you move a Raspberry Pi between wifi networks and you want it to behave like an appliance, one way to set the wifi network easily as a user rather than a developer is to have it create an access point itself that you can connect to with a phone or laptop, enter the wifi information in a browser, and then reconnect to the proper network. Balena have a video explaining the idea . Andrew Nicolaou has written things to do this periodically as part of Radiodan. His most recent suggestion was to try Resin (now Balena)'s wifi-connect . Since ...

Creating nanopublications with Groovy

Compound found in Taphrorychus bicolor (doi: 10.1002/JLAC.199619961005 ). Published in Liebigs Annalen , see this post about the history of that journal. Yesterday I struggled some with creating nanopublications with Groovy . My first attempt was an utter failure, but then I discovered Thomas Kuhn 's NanopubCreator and it was downhill from there. There are two good things about this. First, I now have a code base that I can easily repurpose to make trusty nanopublications (doi: 10.1007/978-3-319-07443-6_63 ) about anything structured as a table (so can you). Second, I now about almost 1200 CCZero nanopublications that tell you in which ...
