How to create Custom dashboard for Particle other than paid service like Blynk etc


I’m new to Particle and IOT - I’m wanting to create a custom Dashboard for my Particle Boron so I can switch on a relay etc and take readings from sensors - all via my iPhone or any browser outside my home network.

I’m looking for solutions other than a service like Blynk etc - I can create html web pages but other than that I have limited programming experience - but willing to learn as I would like to make more projects.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I’m keen to see how you go with it :slight_smile:


Hi Vlado,
