Need a developer

Just found out my Tidbyt has been shipped (woohoo!) and I have a specific use in mind- but could use some help with development.

Pretty simple- display a few numbers from an online data feed in a specific format. These numbers update every 5 minutes on my specific URL in json format.

Anyone available to assist?

Hi Dave,

I’m very new to Tidbyt development, but I think I could help you out here! Do you want to outline some details here, or via email?

Jeremy, great to hear from you! Thank you for being willing to help. I put together a brief PDF and video. Let me know what you think! - Dave

Hi Dave,

Cool project! Looks fairly straightforward, let me see if I can throw something together this afternoon.

Awesome, thanks!

FYI, a better way to communicate might be outside of this Tidbyt chat, I don’t get notifications regularly.

happy to jump on a skype/zoom if it’s easier.

Thanks again!

Just for anyone following along, this didn’t end up being too bad. Biggest pain in the ass was creating all the icons for the arrows in - it would be nice if starlark supported loading local images.

I’ll upload the code to my git repo when I get a chance. Would love to know the next steps for getting this published.

Wow Jeremy, this is fantastic!

@rohan what would it take to get this app available on my Tidbyt? Love to test it out.

Great stuff!

Dave

I’ve added my code here: https://github.com/jer-tav/tidbyt_apps/blob/main/nightscout/nightscout.star
