About the balenaHub category

Discussions about our new balenaHub platform that allows you to find and install IoT / Edge applications, have questions about the submission process, etc.

Use the following paragraphs for a longer description, or to establish category guidelines or rules:

  • Why should people use this category? What is it for?

  • How exactly is this different than the other categories we already have?

  • What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • Do we need this category? Can we merge with another category, or subcategory?

Can you provide an introduction here to what balenaHub is such that we don’t need to go looking? The system architecture terms can get really confusing really fast as so many names sound like they could be solving the same problems. Working on clear, concise definitions would go a long way.

Hi Jason, and welcome to the Forums. We actually built this feature live on a YouTube stream today, so that is the reason for the lack of content here; it is brand new!

Ultimately, you can think of balenaHub as an “App Store” for projects and applications that will run on IoT and Edge devices.

As mentioned, it is just freshly launched and we will continue populating it, but have a look here to check it out: https://hub.balena.io/

Hope that helps, thanks.

Quick note: I am going to Lock this topic, so that folks don’t accidentally ask any usage or technical questions in this thread…but if you have any further thoughts, don’t hesitate to open a new thread. :slightly_smiling_face:
