Awesome. I’d love to hear what you planning on using it for. I think my next attempt will be to combine a PHP Proxy ( withh the dashboard so you can generate core specific and function/variable specific access_tokens (ie, make an access token read only and then you can embed it in public facing html pages without worry)

My immediate need was simply to have a way to check some variables on my half-finished house monitoring project if I receive any alerts while out of town this weekend. Didn’t have any time for code changes before the trip, so this works nicely in case of an emergency.

I will have to think about how else it could fit in with my projects on my own server during the flight. :relaxed:
