About the Application

  • Keen.IO is a cloud platform that provides data collection and analysis services via the REST API. Keen offers SDKs for many programming languages, including browser-side JavaScript and Node.js.
  • In this tutorial we used Tibbit #30 (ambient humidity and temperature meter) for collecting environmental data and storing it on the Keen.IO server.
  • A very simple in-browser application is used for fetching data from Keen.IO and displaying charts in the browser window (the charts below have been received from Keen.IO, they are not static).
  • Data collection and representation are separated into device.js and server.js applications.

Beautiful charts, straight from Keen.IO
