I like the cloud features of the core, but for me they are a perk if the cloud is available. I like being able to use the API when I can, but it’s not critical. My #1 priority is that my program loop run. If the cloud is unavailable, I am willing to try to connect to the cloud every so often but I don’t want the core to dedicate all of it’s resources to connecting to the cloud.
Is there an easy way to do what I need? Almost all of my applications (3 at the moment, more to come) will need to behave in this way.
