Bring life back to your Pebble

On December 7th, 2016, Pebble announced that they were ceasing operations. Two days later, on December 9th, 2016, the Rebble web site went live, announcing our intention to "maintain and advance Pebble functionality, in the absence of Pebble Technology Corp." We have fulfilled much of this goal via Rebble Web Services, which restores most of the functionality that the Pebble community knows and loves.

The shiny Rebble future: one year after the Pebble server shutdown

Hi out there, Rebble world! Joshua on the microphone here for a bit. It’s been a year since the Pebble servers have shut down, and I’m still wearing my beloved Pebble 2 on my wrist every day; as far as I can tell, it’s still the case that nothing else out there compares to these things. As the buttons start to wear out on this one, though, I’m starting to ask some of the same questions that I hear echoed out in the Pebble world: what does the future of Rebble and of Pebble-like things look like? Well, I’m an optimist on that – and I wanted to fill you all in on some of the reasons why. I’ll catch you after the fold.

It's Timeline time!

Hi there! Long time, no talk. Sorry for the silence, but I assure you that one year on, we’re alive and well, and we’ve got great things to share! This is the first of two posts coming your way – in the next post, we’ll talk about the :sparkles: shiny future of Rebble :sparkles:, but for now, we have an exciting announcement, and that is:

You guessed it, it’s finally time: Timeline time, to be specific! We’ve been talking about it for a year now, and thanks to the heroic effort of Maxim Teryokhin, Timeline is back up and running! :heart_eyes: If you loved apps like Note to Self, they’re ready to roll again on your wrist. We’ve spent the last few weeks carefully setting it up and testing it on RWS for everyone to use, and we’re so excited to announce that it’s ready. Timeline by now should have rolled out to all subscribers, and client-side timeline apps should work for you! We’re still rolling it out to non-subscribers – for more information on that, and on timeline apps that depend on a server, and, heck, a few other things we’ve done in the intervening time, read on below the fold.

Ushering in the Rebble Era!

It’s a new day. It’s a new month (:ok_hand: :punch:). But most importantly, it’s a new era! :rocket: It was over a year and half ago that Rebble first put its stake in the ground as the unofficial spearhead organization for continuing the advancement of the Pebble platform in the absence of Pebble Technology Corp. Re-reading that first blog post, a lot of the same feelings of fear, anxiety, resilience, and hope have been expressed in recent days as we make another transition - this time from Pebble web services to Rebble Web Services! What does that mean? Why is it necessary? When is it happening?! What do I need to do to participate??! Read on, and all will be explained! :bowtie:
