# Import libraries for parsing the JSON output by the Wio Link
# Also import the Initial State Python library so we can stream
# the Wio Link readings to a visualization

# The access token for your Wio Link

# The name of the signal the sensor produces

### Initial State Information ###
# The name your bucket will appear with in Initial State

BUCKET_KEY = "wiolink"

except TypeError:
print "Type Error"

The return json format have changed. Maybe need fix the code.
