Hello !

 

I like to work with your OpenSource API on my Servers but compared to your API running on thingspeak.com the OpenSource API seems a little bit outdated.

A lot of parts of the code are about a year old, last updates seven months.

I appreciate the free service of thingspeak.com offers for people that cant afford or run their own servers, but there are a lot of users that feel better with their data on their own servers.

 

Do you plan an update of the OpenSoruce API in near future ?

 

Kind Regards

Hi fire,

Yes, we have plans on updating the GitHub for the open source API in the coming weeks. There are 10 updates or so that we have to make and the API part will be current. 

Thanks for checking. We are glad that people still want to download the source and run it home servers. You should be able to run what is there, since most of the changes are to how the charts gets data out and how we filter out data on the outbound side. The core mechanics will stay the same.

Hi Hans!

Good to hear that the opensource-api will be further updated.

 

Could you please explain how to report bugs in the source code? or where to suggest improvements?

 

Github? Forum? Mail?

Hi Michael,

I think GitHub issue tracker is a good place. You can tag bugs, enhancements, etc. Let us know what you have.

Keep up the good work!

Fire,

What parts of the average and rounding are not working?

We don't have any open bugs on that part, so I wanted to make sure we have that working properly for your app.

A common mistake is using a time period that is not supported, such as average=7, 7 is not a valid time period and will default back to having no averaging.

This is the line that defines the time periods: 10, 15, 20, 30, 60, 240, 720, 1440 (Line 201 of thingspeak / app / controllers / feed_controller.rb).

We are still working on the updates, but the core API calls will not be affected much.
