Phil Windley has written about using Foursquare data inside SquareTag. Foursquare uses push notifications that look like Webhooks and thus can be used to raise events.
These examples are a little dated from a terminology standpoint, but the concepts are still valid. The following were all updated or changed years ago, but need to be updated again:
- CloudOS and it's PDS service didn't exist at the time these experiments were done, so the PDS referenced is a prototype and some functions have changed.
- SquareTag didn't exist, so the example uses the Kynetx Browser Extension to manage applications.
- The TA network relies on hand-coded subscriptions, but the Forever application could be used to manage those now.
- The TA example also shows how Twilio SMS messages can be used within a SquareTag application.
