My Leaf; An adios for vehicles produced prior to May 2016 ๐Ÿ‘‹

I’m writing this to thank all the users and feedback from users with a vehicle produced prior to May 2016. As you may know Nissan has decided to discontinue support for these vehicles. This means their official app will stop working together with the API for these vehicles. This means My Leaf will also stop working for these vehicles. Nothing can really be done about this. It was a fun and sometimes not so fun to support these vehicles and to that effect also the API behind it all. I honestly thought that this API was even outdated when I first began reverse-engineering the official app and learning to know the API. It was like meeting an old “friend” that you never really knew. One thing is for sure - I’ve learned alot doing all of this.

My Leaf used the dartcarwings which was made and maintained by me. I know alot of projects used this library for other interesting integrations. That was really cool to discover and I’ve had many great interactions with many great folks. So thanks for that also!

It’s important to state that My Leaf continue to work for european vehicles produced after May 2016 and I guess for the foreseeable future. This is supported through my other library called dartnissanconnect which My Leaf still uses. I know people still use this library for all kinds of interesting stuff; just like they did with dartcarwings.

Adios and thanks for everything ๐Ÿ‘‹
