The MyEV App enables anyone to locate EV-PointPublic chargepoints and to see their status in realtime. Using your free MyEV account you can use the app to remotely start and stop charging your electric vehicle.
The app was built using Ionic Framework and is backed by the EV-Point API. This API integrates with the Central System which in its turn communicates with all the chargepoints (over 3G). The API and Central System for this (still ongoing) project were also developed by me. All types of chargepoints are supported, as long as they “speak” OCPP or OCPP-J.
In its current state, the app allows one to:
View a list of chargepoints
Filter the list of chargepoints
Get a detailed view of a chargepoint
Log in with your EV-Pass (OAuth)
View your account (login required)
View the last 10 charges of your EV-Pass (login required)
Perform an action – remoteStart/remoteStop – on a chargepoint (login required)
You can see (an early build of) the app actually perform such a remoteStart/remoteStop in this video:
Please note that action in the video was performed using a testplug, just imagine an electric vehicle being connected to the other side of that small cable.
Woohoow, just pushed trancefusion.be live! Trancefusion I say? Yes Trancefusion, the yearly mass-event/party (5000 visitors!) we, Scouting Deinze, organize. (now you know why I have this huge Trancefusion-sticker on the back of my car 😉)
After quite a few evenings of designing; One evening of slicing/building markup/creating stylesheets; And 2 evenings of porting the sliced up design to WordPress (first time I ever did that actually) by breaking The Loop, stripping content from Pages and tucking them in The Sidebar and spending lots of time on and around The CodexI load upon thee the 3rds.be website along with its dazzling Mascot dubbed Mister Sideburns!
Unlike others stating they are “building something they cannot talk about”, or that they “will be creating something in the near future” or that they “are working together with some undisclosed people on a top secret project” I’m not into over-hyping nor viralizing my plans.
