Getting API Data Using Webhooks and Response Templates

I wrote this tutorial after working on my first Photon project and found that the information I needed to get started was spread across multiple places, and had gaps for someone new to web projects. I wrote this for a beginner that has never used any Particle products before. However, the tutorial includes a thorough explanation of Webhooks and Mustache Response Templates that could be useful for an experienced Particle user who wants to learn these concepts.

The example I chose in the tutorial is getting chance-of-precipitation from the API, but the concepts could be applied to getting other data from or similar APIs.

I’m planning to do more tutorials with the Photon, and welcome any feedback you have to help make this and other tutorials better.


Very interesting tutorial, well done!
I will certainly use these possibilities for our new “particelized home” when I find some time …
