Last week, I explained how I was able to run StreamSets Data Collector (SDC) on a Raspberry Pi 3, ingesting sensor data and writing it to Cassandra. With that working, I wanted to show pipeline metrics on Adafruit’s awesome PiTFT Plus 2.8″ screen. In this blog post, I’ll explain how I was able to write a Python app to retrieve pipeline metrics with SDC’s REST API, showing them on the PiTFT Plus via pygame.
