try to use virtual pins, I see people talking about sketches.......ok what is a sketch and where do I put the code.just need help getting started.
wow, these are very nice questions. welcome to programming !
a sketch is basically a file, containing some code for an arduino (or arduino like) board.you just have to write your code in this sketch. after you think it is ready, you upload to the hardware, and see if it does what you want. if not, then read, learn, re-write and re-upload.
LOL yes I am very new to programming, ok could you tell me were I would begin and were I would put it.
take look at Sketch book.for detail information read Blynk Docs
1) first of all, lets see what hardware (board) are you planning to use?
2) second, what is the communication medium? (wifi, bluetooth, ethernet)
3) on what device (phone / tablet) would you like to install the blynk app?
I have a Raspberry PI 3 I am running a local server connected through wifi, app is installed on a samsung S6.app and server are both online.I understand the code, I am just not sure were to put it and run it.I am use to visual studio write it compile it run it.
sorry for lots of questions, but it is not clear to me: you have the pi3 as server or client?
if you have the pi3 as client (hardware), than read here: http://docs.blynk.cc/#hardware-set-ups-raspberry-pi
the sketch is only used on arduino style boards, not rpi, so you do not have to bother if using pi as hardware.
AH! ok.I have a pi3 as a client.
that's all then, i think. just read through the docs.
I think what I have found it the code goes in the main.cpp. Correct?
And thank you for all your help.
anyone know the command to get SimpleTimer for Raspberry.
I tried git clone https://github.com/ifcot/SimpleTimer
The common SimpleTimer library used in many Blynk programs is written for Arduino.
It "might" work for RPi wiringPi, as that is C++ like... but it is not something you will find much info about in this forum... best to ask on the >wiringPi site< for that type of question.
