Hello everyone, I need help. I need to take a specific information from the site and display it in the Blynk app.
I have seen that I should transform the site into the get request, but how to do this? May be other solutions?
mmmmm, first question I don’t understand what is it and second it’s not possible to download the site in real time in to esp8266 and then parse the code and find the data that I need. The problem is that I don’t understand what should I do with API.
I guess that it is, but you’’d be on your own when it came to writing and maintaining that code. It’s many times more complex to do that than use the API, especially when Blynk gives you two ways of doing the API call. Either as a standard C++ API call or using the Webhook widget.
It’s an example.
Many weather services provide data for locations around the world. You may find it easier to use a different weather service where someone has already shared the method on this forum, provided that service covers the location you are interested in.
