One issue that I ran into was understanding the data that FitBit returns. What looks like a JSON object is actually a string. Being an amateur coder, I had no clue what was wrong — thanks to Surya & Shilpan who came to the rescue and helped me understand! I now have my live “step count” from FitBit printing in my browser!
Next, I dove into the visual representation of the data. I explored the Chart.js code and was able to implement a chart into my site:
My next challenge will be to get the FitBit data talking to the chart in real time (and hopefully the YUN will cooperate and connect soon as well.)
