View Django uptime on your Chumby

This post is from my old blog. The exact publishing date has been preserved for archival reasons.

Here is the code you can use in a Django view to be compatible with your Chumby uptime widget:

def uptime(req):
  if 'pass' not in req.REQUEST or req.REQUEST['pass']!='pass':
    raise Http404
  uptime = open('/proc/uptime','r').read()[:-1].split(' ')
  load = open('/proc/loadavg','r').read()[:-1].split(' ')
  json = "uptime=%d&load0=%s&load1=%s&load2=%s&" % (int(uptime[0][:-3]), load[0], load[1], load[2])
  return HttpResponse(json)
