How to migrate from WebCoRE?

I’ve been using webcore for a long time and now with Groovy gone, it seems webcore doesn’t work with Smartthings anymore. I’ve been trying to do research on the “new” Rules API and trying to figure out how to get started on that but frankly I’m a bit overwhelmed and confused. I can understand the syntax and how to do things, but I don’t know how or where to actually get setup and started. I saw a mention of Postman, and the Rules documentation has links to some SDKs in Github but no real instructions.
Can someone please help?

The easiest way is to use the API Browser+ from @TAustin to upload and manage your JSON.

That being said, you may be able to use Routines in the app to recreate things you were doing in Webcore. Or for more complex routines, some people are using Sharptools which is easier to deal with than the Rules API syntax.

I’ll second SharpTools. Many former webCore users now using the Rule Engine. A very active community for support, with new features continually being brought online.
