Plugins App

Plugins enable you to use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript® to display custom visualizations and controls on the private view of a channel.

    Note:   Plugins can be seen only on private views of a channel. Use MATLAB® Analysis or MATLAB Visualizations to create content to display on your public view.

Create a Plugin

  1. Select Apps > Plugins.

  2. Click New to create a new plugin.

  3. Select one of the Templates.

    • Custom: Create a plugin with your own code.

    • Chart With Multiple Series: Create a chart with a series for each field in your channel. Add your modifications to the template code.

    • Google Gauge: Create a Google® gauge on the ThingSpeak™ platform. Modify the Google gauge code to display your custom gauge.

  4. Click Create.

Plugin Options

  • Name: Enter a name.

  • HTML: Enter HTML code. The HTML window is the main window for your plugin code. You can separate your JavaScript code into the bottom window on the plugin page.

  • CSS: Enter CSS styles.

  • JavaScript: Enter JavaScript code. You can use the replacement key %%PLUGIN_JAVASCRIPT%% in the HTML section. ThingSpeak replaces this key with your JavaScript code.
