Creating a Feed on Adafruit IO is a very simple process. When you login to your io.adafruit.com account, you will see a list of your current dashboards like the list shown below.
Click the Feeds link on the left hand side of the screen to navigate to the Feeds list.
Next, click on the Actions menu on the left hand side of the screen.
Next, click on the Create a New Feed menu item.
A form modal will launch, and you will be presented with two text inputs:
- Name - A short descriptive title of your data. Letters, numbers, and spaces are valid characters, and this field is required. The feed name must be unique for your account.
- Description - A long form description of your data. This field is not required, but it's useful to provide a detailed description if your feed will be public.
Click the Create Feed button once you have finished entering your feed's name and description. You will then be redirected to your new feed.
Next, we will look at how to edit a feed.
