A Wristed Development
With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), the number IoT products has increased almost exponentially. Slowly, connections between these devices are also being forged. Leaf, the 3rd winner of the Pebble Timeline Challenge, falls into this latter category: the application allows your Pebble to act as a remote control for your Nest thermostat from anywhere in the world!
In the last Tips and Tricks blog post we looked at drawing transparent images on both the Aplite and Basalt platforms.
This time around, we will look at a
wscript modification that can allow you to
build a Pebble project when you have two completely separate sets of C source
files; one set for Aplite, and another for Basalt.
Note: This technique can be applied only to local SDK projects, where access to
wscript is available. This means that it cannot be used in CloudPebble
On Monday, we announced the first winner of the Timeline Challenge: Battery+. Battery+ was created by Eric Phillips, a Pebble developer who many may know for his watch timer, Timer+. Twitter has been abuzz with compliments for Eric, and needless to say, we agree! Battery+ is a useful, beautifully designed app that gathers data to generate intelligent battery life predictions.
Hackathons are packed with tutorials, tech talks, and demos, and it’s simple for important activities to sometimes slip through the cracks. However, thanks to Hackawatch, Pebblers will never miss an event at a hackathon again! Hackawatch is a Pebble application created at LA Hacks that allows hackathon organizers to push pins to hackers’ timelines to notify them about important events.
Pins are a new and intuitive way for your users to interact with your app via the Pebble timeline. In a previous blog post I went through a complete walkthrough on how to get started with timeline. This post will focus on one single part of that process; how to deploy a server with Heroku, run jobs with Scheduler, and how to build APIs that push pins with the Express and pebble-api node modules.
