Advice on groovy, thingshield general idiocy

(Dce) #1

I am doing a project with the arduino board and thingshield to measure the water level in my cistern using a sainsmart sonar device.
Arduino was pretty straightforward but having some troubles getting the tiles to show both a state (working as a tile with a color, full, medium, empty) and an actual value (not working)
I will admit it doesn’t help that groovy is pretty confusing to me, and I have trouble finding the right documentation and examples
Does anyone have a pointer or some advice ? especially on solid annotated examples that do m ore than on/off
