    Sorry it's giving you some trouble.

    @avantassel can you provide some assistance for the iSpindel?

    Hi,

    I have the Plaato device on order. Are there plans to integrate this into Brewers Friend as well? What is required from the Plaato side of things for this to happen

    thought it was about time I made my first post!

    Hey, thx for your support, but I have no idea how to actually use the linked repo.
    Guess I got to wait for the official release then.

    Cheers!

    Hi, there are plans, however, they depend on when the Plaato API is released. I have contacted them about this and hopefully it will happen sooner than later :)

    I've implemented brewersfriend native support into iSpindel original firmware with some other improvements as 3 degree formula support, I will post it here soon. Stay tuned.

    I've uploaded two releases 5.9.3 and 6.0.3 in my repo, you may find it here

    Users who use zero point calibration should use 5.x release. Also they should use appropriate version for their board type (classic or pro). More info in release notes.

    https://github.com/Misenkooo/iSpindel/releases

    Let me know in case there are any issues.

    good stuff.
    I just flashed the firmware and setup the spindel.
    Looks like it works.

    Hi,

    I am the developer of BrewPiLess. I would like to support Brewersfriend and need some information.
    1. Are all values in the JSON string type? Or, they can be numbers.
    2. Is "null" accept when the value is absent? or null string("") has to be used?

    Thanks.

    Hi Vito,

    Yea a BrewPiLess integration would be awesome.

    To answer your questions, they can/should be numbers for number types like temp, gravity and a null string("") should be used for empty values.

    You can use the custom stream app endpoint or if you're just forwarding requests from Tilt or iSpindel you can use those endpoints:

    For forwarding POST requests:

    Tilt
    https://log.brewersfriend.com/tilt/[API KEY]

    Code:
    Timepoint=43362.606502766204&Temp=43.0&SG=1.009&Beer=IPA%20Test&Color=RED&Comment=Again%20Test
    
    iSpindel
    Header: Content-Type: application/json

    https://log.brewersfriend.com/ispindel/[API KEY] OR you can also put the API KEY in the token param and post to https://log.brewersfriend.com/ispindel

    Code:
    {
        "name": "",
        "ID": "",
        "token": "",
        "angle": "",
        "temperature": "",
        "temp_units": "C",
        "battery": "",
        "gravity": "",
        "interval": "",
        "RSSI": ""
    }
    
    Custom Stream App
    Header: Content-Type: application/json

    Or posting as a stream app, https://log.brewersfriend.com/stream/[API KEY]

    Code:
    {
     "name": "BrewPiLess",
     "temp": 22.2,
     "temp_unit": "C",
     "gravity": 14.1,
     "gravity_unit": "P",
     "ph": 4.5,
     "comment": "",
     "beer": "",
     "battery": 3.588112,
     "RSSI": -57,
     "angle": ""
    }
    
    temp unit: C, F or K
    gravity unit: G or P
