Dear all,

I am wondering if there is possible to build and run small animations by using plugins.

For example if a led turns on and off on an mbed board, let's say at a time interval of 1 min, I would like to see it also on a plugin on Thingspeak.

Please let me know if this is possible and what kind of tools would be needed to build such plugin.

By the way I found Thinkspeak a great project, thanks for make it free.

Hi,

Yes building this as a plugin is possible. The easiest way I can think of would be to use JavaScript and jQuery's animate functions.

Hi lee,

thanks for the hint.
It seems that I have to learn a little bit of jQuery Laugh.

Hi all,

I got it working. In case that somebody else didn't know how to make it, click on the following link https://thingspeak.com/plugins/3419 , right click on the page, then view page source and you'll get the point.

Hi Mircea,

I think your plugin is currently private, so nobody else can view it. If you want others to be able to see your plugin, please edit it and uncheck the "Private?" checkbox and then save your plugin.

Hi lee,

thanks for the observation...I made it public, anyway its just a simple use of jQuery, but good enough to help somebody without knowledge to get started.

P.S. Regarding the forum...is there a way to receive notifications by email in case of a reply's to a topic or subject?

Hi,

There's no way that I know of to get notifications by email (but I'm not very familiar with how Wordpress works).
