So I have a fair amount of arduino experience and I have been able to use quite a bit of my code on the Photon without problem. Where I start to lag is on the other side with HTML and jQuery and all the other latest technologies that are used for web development. I’m diving in and am trying to get things going.
The examples are a very good starting point and I have been able to make progress with learning the Photon. I was wondering if there may be someone here who is on the other side of the development road and has lots of web dev experience and could help with basic communication (GET,POST,SSE)
For example, I installed curl and am able to copy and paste the examples and get a result. So:
will give me a result of the analogvalue
This is fairly easy to understand and I can manipulate easily for different values
I also installed Advanced REST Client in Chrome thinking that I could perform a GET fairly easily. This is where I’m starting to have problems and where a couple of step by step examples would really help out.
The end goal is to have the ability to receive streaming data from a set of outputs on the particle. I’m assuming that I should probably use an SSE but it looks like that requires a GET as well?
Am I going at this the right way? I’m assuming that I will be able to figure out format and other things by just seeing a couple of examples. Should I be building a form on a page and running examples that way?
I’m hoping a little push will get me rolling in the right direction quickly
