Using ESP8266 to Call RESTful API From TheRide to Get Real-Time BUS Data

Here is a tutorial on how to call RESTful API on ESP8266 and process the data using ArduinoJSON. This data is visually represented in a NeoPixel ring for easy tracking of 3 buses approaching a certain stop. This code also sends MQTT messages with the received data. debsahu/RESTful-Ride Using ESP8266 to call RESTful API from http://TheRide.org to get real-time BUS data Features: Easy to read interface Fast and Responsive Portable, i....
