First post here, I have a few questions that I hope it’s ok to ask.
I am currently working on a College project in which I have to build a gateway that is compatible with different kinds of sensors (many of them “dumb” sensors, like temperature bluetooth data loggers etc). While looking for different options I stumbled upon Mozilla WebThings. Having read “Building the Web of Things” I instantly thought that this might be just what i was looking for, looks like a great project that I hope it will be successful. But right now I feel that i am not finding the documentation that I need, so I’ll ask some questions here.
Is there any developer guide? Or any kind of introduction to develop our own solutions (gateway side, like new adapters etc)
What would be the best way to connect Bluetooth sensors? Is there a good adapter already? I noticed that before there was an option to scan for Bluetooth devices, what happened to it? Is there any adapter that would be a good starting point?
If I can manage to create what I want, is it possible to port the solution for a device other than a RP ? Has anyone tried to do it before? How hardware agnostic is Mozilla WebThings gateway?
Is there any out of the box solution to connect the gateway to the cloud? Or to a private server? Like if I am logging temperatures and need to upload them to somewhere what is the current way to do it?
I hope my questions are reasonable and not too confuse. Many thanks in advance!
