Customization & queries


Thank you in advance for taking the time to let us know about your Ideas. We truly value your input and discuss each Suggestion as a team. It would be most helpful if you could include a use case for your Idea (how it will solve a problem, or add to the usefulness of Cayenne as a proto-typing solution). Thanks!
I am new to Cayenne. Started using it since couple of days and was able to successfully deploy the dashboard with Raspberry Pi. The adoption looks interesting and easy.

Have few queries and you would glad to hear from community.

  1. Is there a way to search topic in forum?.

  2. Is there a way to add custom widget for additional components?. If yes, is there a standards or documentation available towards building such custom widgets.

  3. Is ESP 8266 directly supported by cayenne - my device?.



Welcome to Cayenne!

  1. Yep, just click the magnifying glass in the top right on the page to search the forums.
  2. Currently custom widgets for the Pi are not supported, however, you can use the MQTT API documented here:
  3. The ESP8266 is not currently officially supported, but you can add it to the dashboard just fine (and add custom widgets) Esp8266
