The challenge for the developer type is where are you going to host the script ...

Introduction Before my home state of Georgia went on lockdown, I dabbled in sourdough as a hobby. After lockdown, it was an obsession. To the point that I decided I needed to make my own proofing box. I looked at several designs, eventually settling on using a cooler, a Raspberry. Pi, a piezoelectric mister, a light bulk, and 2 smart switches to control it. I wanted to have careful control over the setup, so I integrated a humidity and temperature sensor as the brains, but I wanted a place to store and monitor the data generated by the proofing box—Quick Base was the perfect tool. I had recently worked with a large chemical-processing company to setup ...
