As many of you know, we’ve been cranking on the latest major point release of ThingStudio for the last month or so, which includes: major updates to transports, UI improvements and ‘breaking ground’ on a new version of the app viewer. So, without any ado, at all, here we go.
Our second transport: HTTP
While going from 1 transport to 2 may not sound like a big deal, it’s surprisingly complex. With one transport, you can just assume ‘connection’ refers to one thing with well-defined, unchanging properties. This assumption propagates all the way through your code base. In our case this ‘connection’ assumption was MQTT.
Since day-one we’ve been planning to add multiple transports, but our most advanced users really started to push us towards not only adding another transport, but HTTP specifically. So, we’ve finally tackled this and it’s working great.
