๐Ÿš€ New Blynk release!

Dear Blynkers!

The big day is here - our brand new Blynk platform is open for sign-up! :rocket: Thank you for your tremendous support in making it happen :raised_hands:

Some of the coolest features of this release:

  • Blynk.360: finally, a web dashboard to monitor devices, manage who access the data, do over-the-air updates, and much more.
  • A new approach to device model creation
  • Blynk.inject: a WI-FI manager built into the new Blynk app
  • All kinds of Automations (think Eventor on steroids)
  • Voice assistants (coming in June)

We canโ€™t wait for you to try it out and share your feedback with us! Meet the next-generation Blynk platform! | Blynk IoT Blog

HI,

Good news.

FAQ: I have an existing Blynk 1.0 account - do I use these credentials to access Blynk 2.0 (ie Log In), or Do I create a new Blynk 2.0 account (ie Sign Up)?

thnx

Pete.

Blynk 2 is useless for now. I canโ€™t login. always waiting on connecting screen.

@Dmitriy could be a DNS issue?

Does Blynk 2 0 work with node-red-contrib-ws? I was working with blynk-ws-in-write, but had no success.

Thanks
Paul

Something at your end . . . I logged in no problem, setup my first test project, little bit of a learning curve but all good . . . not โ€œuselessโ€ at all . . .

No, unfortunately it doesnโ€™t, certainly at the moment.
This is because websockets integration has not been built in to Blynk.360. Blynk say that itโ€™s on the roadmap, along with native MQTT support, but have not given a timescale.

@gab.lau (who wrote and maintains the current node-red-contrib-blynk-ws) has said this:

There is a workaround to post data to Blynk from Node-Red using the HTTP Request node, using the Blynk.360 API (which is different to the old one) and Iโ€™ve been using this to push data into 4 virtual pins every 5 seconds for the past two months and itโ€™s working well.

As far as getting data back from Blynk, I guess youโ€™d need to query each virtual pin on a regular basis using the API, and look for changes (maybe using the RBE node). I have no idea how often youโ€™d be able to get away with doing this though, before your API requests were disallowed.

Personally, Iโ€™m rather disillusioned by this, and by the lack of a firm commitment from Blynk on enabling websockets, so Iโ€™m looking around for different alternatives to Blynk at the moment.

No I tested with different interneโ€™s and vpns but not working

Do you see any errors in the browser console? What browser do you have and OS?

Now itโ€™s working.

We did a new deploy recently. So probably it somehow fixed the issue.

thanks. where can I found blynk 2 examples for nodemcu ?

I think all blynk 1.0 examples should work in the same way.
However, some new features werenโ€™t yet fully documented, like this one - Log Event - Blynk Documentation

Thank you for this effort. I made a simple code to turn on and off a virtual LED, but it didnโ€™t work with the new Blink and at the same time it works on Blink 1.0
