I have an arduino that post's data from a few sensors to There are some limitations to the website(such as not being able to store large amounts of data which is completely understandable.

I am trying to build something similar and run it on a computer connected to my home network. I wan't it to have the graphing functionality of thingspeak and a lot of other ways to display the data. It doesn't have to look super pretty since only two people will be seeing it.

I will eventually be connecting a lot of other sensors to my "shitty thingspeak knockoff". I was thinking of using something like django as I have worked with it before and know how to use it's REST library. But I don't know how to display the data to properly and handle data storage.
