This tutorial may be outdated. It is no longer recommended for beginners, and may need modifications to code or hardware that is not indicated in the tutorial.

Overview

The Temboo service has moved away from Arduino support. The service access in this older guide will no longer work.

This guide will introduce you to the basics of programming your Arduino Yún to interact with APIs using the Temboo platform. We'll build a simple device that checks Twitter for user mentions when a button is pressed, and then turns on an LED if there is a new mention. Of course, the same steps we take here can be adapted to work with all sorts of different sensors and any of the different processes in the Temboo Library.
