After more than one year of struggle with Micro M3D printer I decided to buy something bigger, faster, and more reliable. So why not original Prusa i3 MK2, which was on top of the chart (which I can not find anymore) while M3D was at the bottom.

Power meter graphs with prometheus.io and nodemMCU

LIFX bulbs are great, but when you just need to turn them on, off or just change brightness, it can be not very comfortable, to do this simple task by app. So I decided to create much simpler way to do this. And then I came across NodeMCU, small development board similar to Arduino with integrated Wi-Fi, with cost of about $5.
