Really excited to have my Tidbyt! I want to have a few apps that displays where the nearest bus on a route is set to stop next, the number of bikes at a selected station for our bikeshare, and when the next train will arrive at the selected station. I’ve done quite a bit of digging, and I have the API’s needed for this, yay!
(I’ve already coded together the bike share app, just want to get it looking nice)
My question is though, I’ve yet to try to post anything on my Tidbyt, just on localhost. From what I’ve gathered reading on here, whatever I post to the Tidbyt will need to be manually updated. This would totally not work with what I plan to do because then I might as well just look this information up myself! But, it seems like if I post this on the community and get it up on the ‘app store’ you all will “rerun” it each time it gets shown on the Tidbyt?
Apologies if this wasn’t described using the right words! I can code, don’t necessarily know the lingo lol. So a couple questions…
(1) How long does it take for a submission on the community github to be posted?
(2) Will apps on the community page get updated each time the Tidbyt runs?
(3) If thats not the right way to think about it, how can I get the code to be run so that new JSONs are pulled regularly?
