Hi Grafana devs - another tech question: How do you like Flot in retrospect for charting? It certainly looks nice, wondering if you're happy with it or have you seen any limitations in what you can do with it? Thinking about using it in another project so any insight is welcome. Thanks!

[META] Grafana Devs: What's your experience/ takeaway from building a large scale golang webapp?

Some context: I've done a fair bit of rails/ nodejs and python in the past but now looking building a similar data-driven webapp in Go. Would you recommend it? Any takeaways from building a medium/large app in Golang in general? Productivity/ tooling/ debugging etc vs other languages?

Thanks in advance!

Has anyone else had their N5X aggressively dim their screen brightness in moderate indoor lighting?

I will frequently be sitting in my living room in the evening and my screen goes from reasonable to dramatically too dim with no change in ambient lighting and very little movement of the device. Then just as quickly it will go back.

Obv adaptive brightness is enabled but it seems like steps/ thresholds are not set correctly. Or maybe it needs to be calibrated for the N5X light sensor.

Is it possible to add back the "avoid access points with low signal quality" advanced WiFi option? It was available in many LP ROMs. Assuming it's mostly just a build feature enable to get it back?

Hey there! Just wanted to say the fingerprint unlock feature is awesome! Works like a charm on my Nexus 5X.

Anyone have luck with AICP for bullhead (Nexus 5X)?

I just tried flashing, boot animation plays forever and this appears in my logcat:

Is LiveDisplay available in the new MM builds? It's a great feature in LP and I just got a Nexus 5X but haven't loaded AICP yet.

Apologies if this has been answered - I can't figure out how to search within the community in the new G+ style!

Anyone know why CM-based ROMs seem to take SOOOOO long to boot?

On both my M7 and Peregrine, AICP takes multiple minutes to boot (and not b/c of "Android is upgrading" app precompilation.)  I just reverted my M7 back to 5.0.2 stock and it boots in under 30 seconds. 

Curious if everyone experiences this.  Measure the length of time the boot animation plays, (not the initial bootloader screen or "upgrading" dialog) and post your results w/ phone model!

Nah, AICP boots fast for me!

Question: I'm up to date with my ROM version but kernel version says 5.0.2_r1. I'm not really interested in flashing a custom kernel, just looking for the latest.

Is this it? Does OTA not update the kernel? TIA!

If you want to install Google Clock...

Just a PSA - for anyone who's attempted to install the offical Google Clock from the play store - you've inevitably seen the -505 error which is due to conflicting permissions between the system DashClock.apk and this app.  (Also I think this is a Lollipop-only problem.)

Simple fix: Use Titanium Backup to uninstall the stock clock, reboot then you'll be good to install the clock from the play store!

Does anyone know if DashClock.apk is part of cyanogen?  If so I'll report it on their issue tracker.
