Now Live: Adafruit IO Plus! The Adafruit IO Subscription Plan
After a long time in beta testing mode, IO is getting a subscription plan, IO Plus! It’s been in our minds since we started this project a few years ago and “How can I get more feeds?” has been the most frequent and persistent question from people using and interested in IO, which is GREAT! The good news is that we finally have an answer for you. Say hello to IO+!
We frequently write about the latest stats for IO and here are the latest for the past week:
82.1 million inserts of logged data in the last 7 days
30,816 online feeds (105,563 feeds total)
We’re responding to issues you may run into on our Adafruit IO Forum. Please post any issues with as much detail as you can. It definitely helps us out when fixing the bugs.
Also, if you’re still using version 1 of our API, you may want to upgrade to the latest version 2. It has more features, and is generally better designed and easier to use than our previous API. The default for our docs is V2 now as well.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
