I have an unopened HE hub sitting on my desk in preparation for the day Samsung shuts down WebCoRE. Tonight I decided that purchase might have been too hasty and I should check out the Rules API that people are suggesting will replace WC. Now I’m more confused than ever.
If I’m understanding things correctly, the code that I can write using the WC IDE to turn on a light when motion is detected between certain times and that looks like this:
Will look like this in the Rule API:
I’m assuming I’m missing something and that missing link is causing my confusion. Can anyone help me understand the following:
- Is there an IDE available to generate the code shown in my second Rules API screenshot?
- Is there a document that compares and contrasts WC and the Rules API and their respective development environments?
- WC is a robust, powerful tool that allows tech-savvy non-programmers to create complex automatons. Will there be nothing similar available when WC goes away? Or:
- Am I overestimating the complexity of the Rules API?
TIA for any insight anyone can provide.
