Here is a short view of my projects that has taken a lot of time; either it’s developing or install/setup/configuration.

Home Assistant

Type: Private
Status: Active
Role:
User
Link: https://home-assistant.io/

I have now started collecting all my smarthome gadgets in Home Assistant, so I can control them all from one place. I currently use plugins for e.g. Telldus, Unifi, Steam, Netatmo, Apple TV, Samsung TV, Generic camera, etc…

Home Assistant is an open source project where I am only a heavy user – I’m not contributing to the development (yet).


Infoplakat – Digital Signage

Type: Fosen Utvikling
Status: Active
Role: Main developer
Link: https://www.infoplakat.no

Infoplakat is a digital signage web-application (currently only released in norwegian). The application has many templates with API connections to e.g. MET.no (weather), NRI (departure board), Facebook and much more.

Written with HTML5 frontend and Apache/PHP/MySQL backend.


VisionLAN

Type: VisionLAN
Status: Active
Role: CEO and developer
Link: https://visionlan.no/

VisionLAN is a small local LAN-party that have almost had 200 participants.

I developed a dynamic webpage with user-profiles, game signup with Steam-login (Steam API), ticket-system with Stripe payment, SMS with Clickatell API, etc…


Rutetider – ferje.net

Type: Fosen Utvikling
Status: Active
Role: Main developer
Link: http://ferje.net

I have to take a ferry to the city if I want to buy something the local community doesn’t have. I was annoyed of how diffucult it was to check the next departure – so I created a web-application for it. By telling just a couple of my friends about it, I reached 80 users in just a few days.

At first, it just contained manually updated timetable for a single ferry route. Later on the local bus, some other ferry routes, etc… In the end, I had to find a better solution for maintaining the application, so I found NRI who offered HAFAS API. Now it has all routes in Norway for all transport-types (including planes).


FIP – Fosen IKT Portal

Type: Fosen IKT
Status: Active
Role: Main developer
Link: Intranett application – No Public URL

At first it was just a phone catalog from AD (Active Directory), then a password change function for administrators… Now it’s our main work platform at Fosen IKT, which has helpdesk, CMDB, online store, project and task management, service/price catalog, faq, intranet with groups, fb-like wall, etc…


Bplan – Bemanningsplan

Type: Fosen IKT
Status: Active
Role: Main developer
Link: http://bplan.no/

Bplan is competence-mapping application for employees. It allows employees to update their CV and help leaders to structure their department/organization.

 


UniFi Guest portal

Type: Fosen IKT
Status: Active
Role: Main developer
Link: Intranett application – No Public URL

A “new world” opened after starting switching the wireless from Cisco to Ubnt UniFi. For just a third the price of Cisco we got better management and great API that allowed us to create a Guest login portal for our public Wifi. The users can choose to login with their AD-user, SMS or a Room-code.

fuTelldus

Type: Private
Status: Deprecated
Role: Main developer
Link: http://forum.telldus.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3364

fuTelldus was written i PHP/MySQL to log temperatures from Telldus. After it was published in the Telldus forum, it has become one of the most active posts with 127270 views on this date (05-2017).

The project wasn’t active very long, most because of the time it took to maintain and because there are now other and better solution for history logging (like Telldus Live and Home Assistant).

 


 

There is a lot of smaller or deprecated projects that I have posted about in my blog. So if you are curious, you will probably find a lot more there 🙂
