COSM (used to be Pachube) helps connect little devices like the raspberry pi to the internet. You will need to do the following to use COSM.
- Setup a Account
- Create a Feed
- Save the API_KEY
- Save the FEED ID
Setup a Account
You will need to create a COSM account. Click on the blue "Get Started" circle to create a new account. It's your typical e-mail/password followed by password verification. You will need to check your e-mail and click the verification link.
Add a Feed
Click the blue plus to add a feed.
Give your new feed a title and tags.
Title: "Raspberry Pi Temperature" (or whatever you like)
Tags: raspberry pi, temperature, adc (or make up your own)
Select the "Create" button.
You need to extract the API_KEY and FEEDID from the code sample that COSM provides. These will go into the python script that we setup on the next page. The API_KEY lets COSM knows who is connecting and to which feed they want to send data.
In this example the API_KEY is: 5RNOO3ShYJxYiq2V2sgSRtz3112SAKxFQjNDQmNXc0RScz0g
The FEEDID is: 68872
Do not use those numbers, use your own!
