Weathether station display help

Tue Oct 04, 2022 10:30 pm

I built a weather for temperature, pressure, rain, wind speed, direction, and humidity using raspiberry pi4, python, and matplotlib. This is in two parts: outdoor with the sensors, pi4, and solar power. Indoor is the display station using matplotlib. The outdoor station wirelessly sends data using json to the display station using MQTT. Works great. The graphic plot is update for now every 11 seconds. The temperature and pressure is x-y plot graph. The display graphical and text. Right now, I am not very happy with the graphic plotting. it is not real-time enough. I could simply redo to be just text only and perhaps put dynamic bargraph with text. Awhile back I saw a front end graphic plotting front code for weather data. Can anyone direct me to this or offer a good solution?

I would go with grafana on the pi, not matplotlib.
Also what is the fastest rate you are collecting data?
