    Default Sig / Stats Generator

    I noticed that a few folks have asked Bill (Bergovoy) about how he does his stats in his signature.. well here it is

    What is it?

    An application that I made that takes the statistics provided by your web enabled controller (AC Jr / 2 with AquaNotes, AC3/3Pro with ethernet, or Premium Aquatics LightHouse) and turns them into an image that you can use as a signature on your favorite forum, emails, or even as an image on your web page. At the same time, I store the stats in a database, and you can get a graph of your temperature, ph, or orp over time. I also provide your stats in an xml format so that you can integrate them into your own pages.

    How does it work?

    A program on my server reaches out every five minutes to your controller and gathers data that you specify. Temperature, ph, ORP, device status- most any data that your controller displays on a web page- all of it can become part of your image. This data gets formatted in the way you want, either fancy or simple, and turned into an image.

    How much does it cost?

    Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. There are no ads, no pop-ups, no tracking cookies, or fees. This was just something cool that I came up with because I'm a reef geek. If you feel guilty about using it for free, then renew your membership to your local reef club, send a donation to MASNA, or give a newbie a frag of something and help spread the responsible reef keeping ethic.

    Okay, cool, how to I get started?

    Register for an account at reefchat.org and once you're logged in, click 'Extras' then 'Signature Generator' from the top menu. Help is available from every screen, and I've even put up a HOWTO with screenshots. I'd appreciate feedback on how to make it better, too. I'm not trying to poach users by asking folks to register at ReefChat, I'm just a lazy programmer. I didn't want to also have to write a registration page, login, forgot password, change password, etc etc etc.

    The controllers the application supports can grow, too. If you have another controller that has a web interface, and it's not listed here, I'd love to work with you to make it compatible. (I'm really hoping to find someone with an RK II and the new firmware.)

    Here are a few sigs that some users have..

    Here's my xml output.

    And here's how one member is integrating the xml.

    If someone has the RK II with the new firmware, I'd love to talk with you. I've been trying to find someone with one that has a web interface.

    I've added support for a few more controllers- the Neptune Apex, RKE with net module, and Profilux.
