The ThingCosm is series of loosely connected tools for sending and receiving data to and from services. While similar solutions exist, I wanted a series of tools that were open source, standalone, and not beholden to any particular vendor. In the past I had been burned by proprietary tools disappearing or being bought out. My goal was to have the only person who could cause me trouble be either my hosting providers or myself.
From this motivation, I initially built three tools, The Hole an arbitrary data storage and graphing tool. The Envoy, an api minimizer for microcontrollers, and the Registry a place to store key value pairs within a namespace
