vaping is a healthy alternative to smokeping!*

  • (This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration)



Vaping was started after years of frustration from dealing with perl and environment management for smokeping. It's a simple python daemon which uses asyncio to poll for input and send output through plugins.

It has a standalone mode to directly serve realtime graphs, or can use ZeroMQ to distribute.


pip install vaping

Note, you will need a compiler and python development libraries for some components.
