Does anyone have a working example webhook that sends published data to ubibots ?
The goal is to take variables that are published by a core/photon and currently show up in the dashboard and send them to ubidots (I’d use librato like the example in the docs, but they only have a 30-day eval…)
I have a variable created in ubidots ready to receive the data.
@michaelT & @josec, I look forward to that. I’ve re-written my publish to export a single json payload that contains the values I want to report, since that’s the approach used in the example @Moors7 pointed me at (thanks for that too), but I’ve not had the time to get that working posting to ubidots yet.
I’m planning to push the data via: publish -> webhooks -> ubidots, because it’sthe right way to do it, and I want to eat our own dogfood until that datapath is reliable. IMO it is the correct way to do it, since the data can be consumed by multiple actors as a result of the simple publish from the device.
For instance, I can use IFTTT to send a SMS/email if a value crosses a threshold.
@andyw I love the power of particle’s pub/sub ecosystem, but I also like having httpclient as an option when we run in to issues like rate limits, payload size limits, system state, etc. Both are great.
