I was putzing around in the developer environment this morning and saw a device type that caught my eye – “SmartSense Multi + Graph.” This immediately got my attention since I’m currently using GroveStream to log and graph various activity, but would love something directly built into the ST environment.
After looking through the device code, it seems the graphing capabilities are rooted in a tile definition called chartTile() … But last I checked, this definitely isn’t in the official documentation…! In fact, to quote the documentation, it says “There are three types of tiles that you can use within your device handler.” For reference, I think there are actually four listed in the documentation: standardTile(), controlTile(), valueTile(), and carouselTile(). Definitely no chartTile() though.
I installed the device from the “Developer -> My Devices -> + New Device” menu just to see what it looked like, but couldn’t find a way to get data from actual devices.
Anyone have any experience or insights on this? A native graphing capability to view various data types would be pretty slick…
