ThingSpeakAndroid

Unofficial ThingSpeak API library for Android.

Features

Download

ThingSpeakAndroid is available on the jCenter repository. If you are using Android Studio, you can simply add a dependency on your app module's build.gradle file to import this library.

dependencies {
    compile 'com.macroyau:thingspeakandroid:0.2.2'
}

Please add the following lines to the build.gradle file if Android Studio fails to resolve the jCenter repository.

repositories {
    maven {
        url "http://dl.bintray.com/macroyau/maven"
    }
}

Usage

Using ThingSpeakAndroid is extremely easy. Create a ThingSpeakChannel, set an event listener and load the data!

ThingSpeakChannel tsChannel = new ThingSpeakChannel(CHANNEL_ID);
tsChannel.setChannelFeedUpdateListener(new ThingSpeakChannel.ChannelFeedUpdateListener() {
    @Override
    public void onChannelFeedUpdated(long channelId, String channelName, ChannelFeed channelFeed) {
        // Make use of your Channel feed here!
    }
});
tsChannel.loadChannelFeed();

If you want to connect to a private Channel, you need to provide a valid Read API Key.

ThingSpeakChannel tsPrivateChannel = new ThingSpeakChannel(CHANNEL_ID, READ_API_KEY);

You can also create a line chart of a specific Channel field using HelloCharts for Android.

LineChartView chartView = (LineChartView) findViewById(R.id.chart);
tsChart = new ThingSpeakLineChart(CHANNEL_ID, FIELD_ID);
tsChart.setListener(new ThingSpeakLineChart.ChartDataUpdateListener() {
    @Override
    public void onChartDataUpdated(long channelId, int fieldId, String title, LineChartData lineChartData, Viewport maxViewport, Viewport initialViewport) {
        chartView.setLineChartData(lineChartData);
        chartView.setMaximumViewport(maxViewport);
        chartView.setCurrentViewport(initialViewport);
    }
});
tsChart.loadChartData();

Please read the API documentation and sample app source code for further details. Sample for TalkBack is coming soon.
