I use my Pi as an interface to different public APIs, that I access from my phone via Pushbullet.

For example: I send "train details" via Pushbullet and the Pi answers with live information, like arrival time, about my train connections.

The app is based on Node.js. For the communication I use the public pushbullet api.

That's a great use case. Would love to know more about which libraries you use for communication with public api

Thanks! I use the 'request-promise' module for sending the http requests and the 'websocket' module for the pushbullet stream.
