    That might well be a preparation of "The Button", which will be then be activated/made visible at a later time. Who knows.

    Tesla API Token Generator

    Also, the token alone does not allow to start the car (still need the password in addition to do that). So it is a little bit less dangerous to give out to 3rd party services. With someone stealing username/password, you are giving literally out the car's location, a way to unlock it without...

    Nikola, an Amazon Echo/Skill for your Tesla

    Any updates on this? :-) My Pi seems to be crashing on a daily basis now (I might just have overloaded it with dash button watcher, home automation stuff etc.)...

    Firmware 8.0

    Same here. Very annoying (and again surprised that Tesla QA did not catch this... :mad: )

    Nikola, an Amazon Echo/Skill for your Tesla

    Do you have a version that can be deployed for single user use?

    Nikola, an Amazon Echo/Skill for your Tesla

    That seems to be another disadvantage of the Cloud9 implementation (at least for the free version)... Inactive Workspaces · Cloud9 They kill inactive workspaces (I am assuming that also applies to Python processes running in them) after 2 hours.

    Nikola, an Amazon Echo/Skill for your Tesla

    Cool, thanks a lot! Would be great if you could add an option to provide a Tesla Auth Token instead of username/password as an environment variable. I still don't feel comfortable storing my Tesla credentials somewhere in the "cloud" (I know, old fashioned :-D )

    Nikola, an Amazon Echo/Skill for your Tesla

    I have a Pi3, Model B. I tried that, but don't like the fact that I have to set the project to "public" in order to get it to work (I am using the authentication token directly in the code in order to be nice to the Tesla API).

    Nikola, an Amazon Echo/Skill for your Tesla

    Thanks so much @wayner! I have this running on my Pi - using the basic plan from ngrok with a fix subdomain on the tunnel, it even survives Pi reboots now! :)

    EVE For Tesla?

    It's a great concept and is probably pushing the envelop in terms of what is possible with the browser. But it is a resource hog, and it regularly freezes up the whole center console (!!), so I stopped using it.

    Slacker now giving me pseudo commercials

    There goes my theory... :)

    Slacker now giving me pseudo commercials

    Did you by any chance get your Tesla in December 2015? The account for my Tesla expires in 3/17, which will be one year after purchase of the car.

    Looks interesting - just signed up for the beta. Great to see that Android is supported!

    $3K extra for Full Self-Driving Capability could be a bad deal

    I have mentioned something similar in another thread (and got some "love" for it :cool: ) - for sure the $3000 investment on the "full autonomy" part at this point is purely speculative. It's a bold assumption that Tesla makes on something they think they can implement with software only...

    Unveiling on Oct 17th

    Thanks! So basically an $8000 bet on a feature set that might or might not materialize, at some point in the future, with a lot of "if's". A typical Tesla product :D
