ThingSpeak is an open-source Internet of Things (IoT) application and API to store and retrieve data from things using the HTTP protocol over the Internet or via a Local Area Network.ThingSpeak was originally launched by ioBridge in 2010 as a service in support of IoT applications. ThingSpeak™ is an IoT analytics platform service that allows you to aggregate, visualize and analyze live data streams in the cloud.
ThingSpeak provides instant visualizations of data posted by your devices to ThingSpeak. With the ability to execute MATLAB® code in ThingSpeak you can perform online analysis and processing of the data as it comes in. ThingSpeak is often used for prototyping and proof of concept IoT systems that require analytics.
ThingSpeak allows you to aggregate, visualize and analyze live data streams in the cloud.
Some of the key capabilities of ThingSpeak include the ability to
Easily configure devices to send data to ThingSpeak using popular IoT protocols.
Visualize your sensor data in real-time.
Aggregate data on-demand from third-party sources.
Use the power of MATLAB to make sense of your IoT data.
Run your IoT analytics automatically based on schedules or events.
Prototype and build IoT systems without setting up servers or developing web software.
Automatically act on your data and communicate using third-party services like Twilio® or Twitter®.
Minikube is a tool that makes it easy to run Kubernetes locally. Minikube runs a single-node Kubernetes cluster inside a VM on your laptop for users looking to try out Kubernetes or develop with it day-to-day.
Minikube supports Kubernetes features such as:
ConfigMaps and Secrets
Container Runtime: Docker, rkt, CRI-O and containerd
Enabling CNI (Container Network Interface)
When using a single VM of Kubernetes, it’s really handy to reuse the Minikube’s built-in Docker daemon; as this means you don’t have to build a docker registry on your host machine and push the image into it -
We can just build inside the same docker daemon as minikube which speeds up local experiments. Just make sure you tag your Docker image with something other than ‘latest’ and use that tag while you pull the image. Otherwise, if you do not specify version of your image,
it will be assumed as :latest, with pull image policy of Always correspondingly, which may eventually result in ErrImagePull as you may not have any versions of your Docker image out there in the default docker registry (usually DockerHub) yet.
