Coda has a very versatile
that can be used to integrate data across multiple sources.
I've always been very interested in the Electronics Maker movement. So what better project than one that pairs that movement with Coda's Doc Maker one 😃!?
This document describes one such project. It's a humidity and temperature sensor connected to a host board that will use the Coda API to upload that data to THIS document. The data is live. It's my home's temperature...
Step-by-step instructions below.
To get started with the Coda API you'll need to follow these steps.
1. Go get an API Token from
You'll see here I've generated one to use to access this particular doc.
Note, I recommend scoping the API token to the specific doc.
2. Create your document and take note of the doc id.
In the case of this document it was 'xhGhO4czO6' which you can see in the document's URL. I made a note of that in the page's title.
3. Create your table(s) in the doc and make a note of the table id and various column ids.
The easiest way to find these identifiers is to ensure you are Developer Mode also found in your Account Settings as linked to in step 1. This will then let you copy the table/view and column identifiers from those object's context menus.
4. Review the
and make use of it in your network connected device.
Here are more details on the implementation for this specific project and a link to example source code.
