This month, scriptr.io’s team released several powerful new features including a complete panel of APIs that caters for all your persistence needs, the ability to install custom modules and the experimental data and API explorers.

January 2016 Updates

Our latest release of scriptr brings about a bunch of improvements devoted to enhancing the use of scriptr.io. We removed some mundane tasks to allow the developers to focus on their applications and increase their efficiency. So we introduced WebSockets, publish/subscribe pattern and automatic GitHub deployments. WebSockets As real-time communication became a common requirement for IoT, we decided to add WebSocket support which enables a full duplex communication model over HTTP where your connection will remain open allowing your messages to flow from scriptr.io to your “things” and vice versa. Using WebSockets deserves its own separate post which will...
