I heart Google charts


I just got a little server together to serve up the data that my sensor logger is collecting.  The Google chart API makes it very easy to create a fancy zoomable time-series chart (link goes to Google documentation as my server is not accessible to the outside world).  

The code is all on my github at https://github.com/fasaxc/WirelessSensorNodeServer.  It's not much good without a serial-connected Arduino piping it data, I'm afraid!  However, it does show how to put together a minimal tornado server in a virtualenv that can serve up static content and a RESTful JSON API.
