hey guys, i'm trying to get a better understanding of the possibilities with grow-iot and custom hardware devices ... but can't seem to find anything online regarding tutorials for grow-iot or creating custom hardware to work with grow-iot, can anybody explain it a little bit further for me or answer some questions?
like for instance, if I had this breakout board connected to an arduino or node mcu ... how would I go about connecting it to grow-iot? https://github.com/CommonGarden/Grow-IoT/wiki/Luminosity-Lux-Light-Sensor
i already have some custom arduino code running for some temp sensors and such, and wanted to try out grow-iot by connecting it ... but can
can't seem to figure out how i would even go about that through arduino

The easiest way through arduino is to use something like johnny-five or firmata: http://johnny-five.io/
I'm sorry for the poor state of documentation, I'm happy to answer any questions.
The documentation there might make more sense.
Thing.js and it's cousin Grow.js (https://github.com/CommonGarden/Grow.js) have examples for connecting arduinos and more!
Let me know if you have any questions!
