Welcome to the early beta

I’m currently setting up the feedback channels. The “early beta” category is currently closed to those that will have access to the new IDE.

I will send out an email to you with documents and information about posting feedback soon. Stay tuned!

Hi all!

I wrote a little Agent to grab the current weather for a zipcode from the weather underground API. You’ll need your own API key to use it, and you might need to hack around with the string parsing a bit since we don’t have native JSON parsing right now (and commas have this nasty habit of showing up in non-constant quantities and locations). It makes a pretty string and passes it down to the device to be displayed on my Emma board (an 8-character starburst display sign), but I thought it might be of interest to those looking for some examples on how to query a web API and handle the response.
