Blynk Example Builder Update

Hey guys did you consider updating the example builder to give code for the new Blynk platform. Ignore if you guys are already working on it

The Sketch Builder has had a basic update for Blynk IoT - adding template ID etc at the top of each sketch, but many of the methods used in the examples are those used in Legacy.

This makes it doubly confusing to newcomers and to people wishing to migrate from Legacy to IoT.

I’m wondering if it wouldn’t be a good idea to take the Sketch Builder offline until it’s fully updated?

@vshymanskyy isn’t example builder is fully changed for Blynk 2.0?

It contains examples for widgets like Bridge Email, GPS Stream, RTC, Table, Twitter, Timer etc that don’t exist anymore…

and Notification examples that use the Blynk.notify method instead of events…

    // Note:
    //   We allow 1 notification per 5 seconds for now.
    Blynk.notify("Yaaay... button is pressed!");

I think it would be better to take it offline and update it and get it online again , if at all you guys are working on an update. Otherwise just make it offline because many of the updated examples are available on the internet.
This way you can avoid confusion among newcomers who are just getting into blynk and don’t understand the codebase.
