Writing your own extensions

If you want to adapt the extensions or write your own extension, you can also find the existing extensions in our Github repository and helpful articles such as this one in the Peakboard help. The examples are kept simple and show the applicable architecture clearly. Each extension is available in source code (directory SourceCode) and as a file for import (binaries).
