OK so - not having a simple plug-in library (currently rebuilt my app on .net core with .Net 4.6.1, then upgraded to Core1.1) - I delved into the REST spec myself and have written a couple of HttpClient functions (so far) to access my devices. I don’t use Xamarin anyway and my app will be running on an Azure web server - so I want/need to keep it simple.
My only current need is to subscribe to a defined set of events, and to call some setup functions - so this will probably be my way forward - a simple set of classes just to wrap the Cloud functions I need - keeps it lean and mean ;-).
Thanks for all your interest/help…
Hope this is useful feedbak
