current version

  • Updated JSON object to become SpaceAPI 0.13 compliant (see status.php)
    • Content type and Cache-Control headers are now sent
    • Now uses location object
    • Now uses state object
    • Space state now has a third state; null. (In case of uncertain state)
    "address":"Kloosterweg 1, 6412 CN Heerlen, The Netherlands",
      "type": "text/calendar",
      "url": ""
      "31457112345, extension 1333"
	"message":"open for public",
  • Uploaded it to but the URL can be changed if necessary..
  • From the SpaceAPI website: "In order to be able to retrieve the object from within a javascript sandbox, the server of the JSON object should set the ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header with a value of ‘*’ ".
  • Added the JSON object to the existing Space state PHP script. Thanks CoolePascal for the help with the PHP stuff!

new version

user:Da Syntax and xopr are working on a new implementation of the API. This enables us to add sensors and other parts of the official API as well.


  • created database for space state (log) and sensor values
  • new php code online (currently running parallel with the old version)
  • created new space state hardware interface using the ESP8266 which connects to the same old switch
  • First draft after recovery File:Esp8266-SpaceAPI-full.tar Note that the used Json parser library will cause heap corruption.
  • Github repo for the latest version is: esp8266-SpaceAPI but needs cleanup and features added.
