Update to Fuel Mileage Tracking Web-App
A few months ago, I whipped up a few PHP pages which saved gas mileage statistics to a Google Spreadsheet and called it a web app. Now I have totally gutted the UI and replaced it with a jQuery Mobile front end. The result is a much more phone-friendly interface, great for using at the pump. It is now live at gas.randomland.net.
I have and placed the project on github. A copy will remain on the Randomland SVN for the time being. And, as with the original code, I'm releasing it under the Apache 2.0 license. Clone and fork at will!
Also as before, the code connects to your Google Docs account. To get started, open the master spreadsheet on a desktop computer and click
File->Make a Copy. Give it a name ending with
(rlgaslog) (subject to change!)
(mobilemiles). Then go to gas.randomland.net and authorize access to your Google Docs from your mobile device.
There are still a number of performance and usability issues I plan to address. If you have any suggestions or bug reports, blurt them out in the comments section of this post or on github. Enjoy!
P.S. In case you're wondering, the stats in the screenshots are real, from my 16-year-old daily-driver Toyota Camry
