Needed a VL plugin to write stuff in an InfluxDB database, so here it is if someone ever needs it :
nuget install VL.InfluxDB
Note that it only supports writing (it’s actually a wrapper around the InfluxDB.WriteOnly lib). It also comes with a small help patch that shows how to write a measurement to a db (available in the help browser).
Thanks, I found an interesting read as to why use something like InfluxDB over the numerous other databases.
I would surmise this by saying that this database focuses on time-series-data, so if you need to work with the collection of data quickly overtime, (they point ot IOT streams and stock market data, but could of courses mean show controls and frame-based information), writing and accessing that info is faster and easier with this database.
just guessing from your screenshot, did you set the DB name in the WriteAsync node? i re-tested the plugin this morning and actually forgot to set this one myself, I left the default from the help patch :) guess I should make this more obvious.
never tried an InfluxDB with no username and password on my end, will see if I can give it a shot today.
