Ping meter
« on: March 04, 2015, 10:25:01 am »
This is a little program I wrote just for my own use, but I'll share it because why not. It pings Google every 5 seconds and reports the time back and shows a graph of the ping. It's still a very buggy and beta-y program. Python file is attached to this post.

Features and stuff:
  • Color-coded graph (1 hour wide, 8 seconds tall when pinging; 1 day wide when reading logs)
  • Records and logs the pings
  • Plays back previous logs
  • Shows detailed info about the line at the current mouse position when reading a log
  • Made in Python! Because that's important, I guess

Screenshots that also showcase my wonderful internet connection:

This is quite useful actually, may I suggest allowing the user to choose what host to ping?

I could definitely add these features. I probably will soon.

I noticed that you force the user to add http:// to the setting. You could probably do some url parsing to figure out if it's been added or not. It's best to make the user think less when you design things :)
