Developer Documentation and Tools for Homey
If you want to read anything about how to program Apps for Homey or use the Web API:
Athom Alpha Tester Program
The purpose of this program is to give developers a chance to adjust their Apps to the latest firmware, before the firmware is released. It is important to be aware of the fact that the updates you will be receiving are very experimental, receive very limited QA testing and can possibly brick your Homey. Therefore it is not recommended to use the AATP updates on a Homey that you are heavily dependent on. It is always possible to unsubscribe from this channel and revert back to the Experimental channel.
