"Internet button" example improvisation

I’ve worked my way through the examples at

It’s been great fun.

Any estimate on when you’ll update the “internet button” example at
http://docs.spark.io/examples/ ?

I would really like to be able to demonstrate running the spark core from a non-local web page ASAP.



I’m not really sure what it is that you’re looking for, but there are several tutorials available in the tutorial section on how to control your Spark using a webpage. This is a popular one: http://community.spark.io/t/tutorial-spark-variable-and-function-on-one-web-page/4181 Be sure to check out the tutorial section in general, there’s a lot of interesting and helpful stuff to be found there!

Could you perhaps elaborate on what you mean by

If that means that you’d like to go to a webpage, push a button, and have a Spark do something, then the above link is the right one for you.

which project is that and what should be updated? :wink:

Thanks Moors7

The servo example you pointed me to is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. It takes the place of the not yet published “internet button” for me.

I’ve implemented it and now I’m off to tinkerland.

To the moon!

@bko @peekay123 @kennethlimcp How do you guys feel about adding a link to the tutorial section on the examples page? Questions like these can then be avoided, and the tutorial section as a whole would be found more easily. Just an idea though :slight_smile:

@Moors7, I have no say in this issue so the Spark team has to decide. :slight_smile:

That’s a great idea, and partly why we put the link to the Projects page everywhere, so people could share projects, and to help people when they’re searching for an example. If we can make the community projects easier to find and share, that’d be awesome. :slight_smile:

I’ve been learning HTML and PHP the last few days after discovering how easy it is to talk to the core through the internet… This message torch thing is awesome https://community.spark.io/t/messagetorch-torch-fire-animation-with-ws2812-leds-message-display/2551

there is an example webpage on his git, it uses php so your access token and core id’s are safe (well i think they are??). I have it on a public server that anyone with the address can access it and leave a message in whatever color they like!

the hardest bit was setting up the server with php, but now thats done its really easy! and i think its a really good example of an internet button + loads more!
