I have started to work a bit with ESP8266 (part of an IOT project) and needed some place to send my parameters for displaying during prototyping. Then I came over these two tools that seem to work smoothly together presenting the results in a nice way.

“dweet.io”:

Describes itself as a “tweeter for social machines” and it is very easy to get started with. That seems to be true. I got it to work and started to collect data after 20 min of trying out.

“freeboard.io”:

That is a tool that offers the ability to easily create dashboards to show you collected data. You simply set up widgets on the dashboard and connect to your datasource(s). The UI is intuitive and the results shows fast.

The two are working nicely together and provided me with what I needed and definitely much more. I will look into that later.
