Arduinos have been a Maker favorite for years. They’re powerful, small, and always open source. With the advent of tiny, cheap WiFi chips like the ESP8266, many Arduinos and third-party boards are now also network connected!
The best part about a network connection? You can stream to Initial State!
Because streaming can vary a little from board to board, I’m going to go over the basics and provide examples of streaming from a few boards that should encompass the majority of Arduinos you’re going to work with.
Examples include streaming from:
- Arduino Yun (using cURL)
- An ESP8266 board (using HTTP POST)
- An ethernet shield (using HTTP GET)
- A board that supports Ciao (using URL parameters)
