Beautiful work! I’m really impressed and thankful of the efforts that everyone has invested to incorporate the brewometer into the BrewPi (which in itself is amazing too).
So please pardon my newbie question, but I’ve been trying to set everything up, using just the Raspberry Pi, without the Spark or Arduino, to simply monitor my Brewometer. My question is, can the BrewPi be run without a spark or arduino (essentially without the fermentation temperature sensors and controllers) to just use it for it’s web server and graph features?
So far whenever I run the BrewPi Software, and access the WebGUI, it tells me the script is not running, and that it cannot receive LCD text from the python script. It appears that the brewpi.py script automatically checks for serial connections and stops if it finds no compatible devices.
Is there a way to get around this, so that I can still use the BrewPi WebGUI for my Brewometer, without the serial devices, until I get around to adding or buying that hardware further up the road?
I appreciate your inputs and advice.
