Wizkers.io is live!

This is the first week of 2015, and the next step in a project I started almost two years ago: today, I am releasing “Wizkers“, a full Javascript/HTML5 Open Source framework that provides data visualization, logging and data upload to any instrument or device that produces data.

What makes Wizkers different? First of all, it is designed to be super easy to use: any computer running Google Chrome can be up and running in a matter of minutes using the Chrome Packaged app version of Wizkers, which we call “Mouse Wizkers”. But you are not limited to running inside of Chrome: Wizkers works just as well as a server on hardware as small as a Beaglebone Black or as virtual as an Amazon Web Services EC2 instance!

Second, Wizkers provides a much needed missing link between Internet Of Things data services and the actual devices that produce data, by enabling complete local control, logging and visualization, while still letting you forward data to whatever backend you want.

Last, Wizkers is designed in a very modular manner, which makes it possible to support new instruments and devices with as little work as possible. If you have designed a device that produces data, and want to give it a great interface, look no further!

Wizkers is already being deployed by quite a few testers, including professional users, and I am very excited to see where 2015 will take us!

State of the project

Wizkers can be considered to be in advanced beta state. The documentation is a work in progress, as is customary, and will improve over time. So while you can expect a few rough edges, dive in and give us feedback, and help us make Wizkers better!

Wizkers support about half of dozen devices, as varied as Ham radio transceivers or Geiger counters. we encourage you to visit our site, Wizkers.io, and get better acquainted with this project.

And by all means, please get in touch with any remark, comment, or question you may have!
