Today, we will be updating ThingSpeak with a few new features, optimizations to our channel views, and adding new server infrastructure. ThingSpeak has been growing quickly. We added 38,000 users in 2015, so we are planning for even more growth by adding new servers and capacity.

Site Maintenance and Updates will happen February 29th at 10am EST. If any issues come up, please let us know as soon as possible.

On the new features, I will blog about some of the new things we added to the API and we will update the documentation once everything gets stabilized.

Thanks for growing with us,
Hans

Hi Hans,
Until now not any issues I can see ...
All my little points are were they used to be
My code still intact
Like the "new" interface 🙂 🙂
Maybe the Visualizations could be "dynamic" (would be great!!)

So, happy to be here and I would like other people say their likes

Thank you very much 😉

H.S.

P.S. Any news for blog/docs dates?

What are you working on?

Thanks again,

Hi Hans,

Thank you for the info and your work for all of us
I am just starting with Iot and with ESP8266-Arduino team (=cheap) via WiFi it will be easy to try. No cables so you can put all sensors all places and thanks to Thingspeak a place to keep the data and SEE what you want/need
I plan also to "control" some things via the "More Apps"

With Thingspeak you have fun but the most important is its usefulness 🙂

Again Thanks a lot

H.S.

Most of ThingSpeak is back. We are still restoring the MATLAB Visualizations.

Hi Hans,
Thank you for the new hardware.
What I see until now ...
In Stats; Updated & Last Entry & number of entries are not "dynamic", to update you must refresh the browser page. I would like to see that data "real time" if possible ... only telling you, really not an issue.
Still you will blog later/tomorrow? I like to know what is Thingspeak now 🙂 🙂 🙂

And of course, again a lot of thanks.

Hi Hans,
I'm the developer of the android application ThingView, my app stopped working, the URL that fails is https://thingspeak.com/channels/CHANNEL_ID/windows.json . That's is the JSON I used to get the chart info, color, timescale etc. Can you restore it back please?
thanks.

Hi,

@mprolo: thanks for putting the effort in your App. I signalled the change in Thingspeak to you.
@hans: my channels seem to be up and running still. I see a new "add visualisations" option but thusfar I have not been able to visualize much 😉

regards

Cor

We have completely revamped the Channels view so that it can scale for the future. The endpoint you listed is not documented and we used internally. I was not aware that you used it for your app.

Does this endpoint help you? https://thingspeak.com/channels.json

Thanks,
Hans

No, It doesn't help me, I know you used internally, but is the only way to read the chart properties like results, timescale, color, average, sum, etc.
In your new version you don't call the json anymore, its harcoded on the page, can you put it back online again please? it will save me a lot of work.

Hi. Do you changed the size charts? On my 7 "monitor in landscape view before the update I had two columns charts now only one. It's a big problem for me.

We are investigating the padding issue and how much effort it would be to restore the windows.json function.

skydesign - can you try your channel view and see if you get two columns again? We made some updates today and tried to fix that for tablet users. Thanks!
