Logitech's biggest mistake was dropping the Squeezebox. We have 6 (one in almost every room in the house) and would buy more if they made more premium hardware like the Transporter.

Have you been struggling with isolation when testing your charm for dependencies? Maybe you're a Juju wizard and work in several different contexts like the ~charmers. I've come up with some bash hacks that make using the local isolation of the charmbox supercharge my review workflow and testing isolation.

If you've got any interesting Juju hacks that have supercharged your workflow - I'm interested to hear them!
As a Juju charmer, I often find myself irate at the level of dependencies I’m installing on my workstation just to review OPC (Other Peoples Code). Though there are usually systems to isolate these dependencies like virtualenv and tools of this nature – nothing really beats having your own isolated system to catch all these [...]

I've found some worfklow enhancements with context switching in Juju. As a juju charmer I have several different contexts in which I interact with my favorite orchestration tool. Having a nice layer of isolation to validate theories, run tests, and experiment has given me a great path forward.

Our latest incantation of the Docker image 'charmbox' makes this story really compelling, and gives my context switching commands some new life that helps keep me organized and focused on the task(s) at hand.

#juju #docker #bash

So, an added bonus of having a SqueezeLite satelite music node, I've also multi-purposed them into surveilance nodes.

This is shaping up to be a nice set of 'frankensteins monster' home automation. I think with some small investments in cosmetics I can make these appear to be nice appliances living around my house that just plug and play into my over-arching home automation strategy without paying into a zigby style system. or opting into vendored closed systems.

Quick breakdown of the tech:

Logitech E 3500 webcam (had on hand)
Raspi model B
Wifi
Motion daemon (Whats providing the webcam stream + automation)

Pictured:  Surveilance Station by Synology - this is not open source, but a good stop gap until i find something open source to do the management. So far though, its adding some nice value-add to configure the streams + triggers... I may just leave this one alone and take it as an acceptable loss.
