Since my favorite dashboard, Freeboard, has finally decided to require payment, it was time to look for another free dashboard. We found Thingsboard, which is open source and Apache licensed. The examples I found used MQTT to upload data. Using their example code, along with the PubSub library code, and a little tweaking to make it work in the Photon world, I’m now able to begin re-creating the weather and environmental dashboards I had before. Right now it’s just uploading temp and humidity, but it appears the graphing options are substantially better in Thingsboard.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
