I have built microcontrollers whose sensors measure water level, temperature and humidity in two water tanks. These microcontrollers have been tested and report data at a fixed rate.
I have built a new website that I would like to send this data to. One page would reveal the raw data in table form, another page would have a dashboard that would show the current water level at a glance. At the moment, my plan is to use a server database such as MariaDB to store the data.
Here is a grab of a dashboard I am currently using for test purposes. It is Adafruit’s IO.
My question is - What would be the most efficient method to accomplish these goals?
I am reading that I should probably be using AJAX and node.js, but I am not up to speed on either of these concepts. Today I am reading about both.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
