Creating a Feed on Adafruit IO is a very simple process. Remember, if you are using WipperSnapper you do not need to create feeds - they are created for you automagically!

When you log in to your io.adafruit.com account, first visit the Overview page. This page lists information about your account, the data coming into IO from your devices, a list of WipperSnapper devices if you have any, and more.

To navigate to the feed page, click on the Feeds link on the header.

On the Feeds page, click the New Feed button.

A pop-up will appear, and you will be presented with two text inputs:

  • Name - A short descriptive title of your data. Letters, numbers, dashes, underscores, or spaces are valid characters, and this field is required. The feed name must be unique to your account.
  • Description - A long-form description of your data. This field is not required, but it's useful to provide a detailed description of your feed.

After adding a feed name and description, click Create.

You'll see your new feed appear on the feed page, underneath the "Default" group.
