I'm creating a binding for NOAA's weather.gov API. I've heavily based the code on Laurent Garnier's excellent WeatherUnderground binding. I can't seem to figure out why no "Supported Things" show up in the UI though.

- I don't utilize a bridge. I don't have a specific reason to as there is no API key or language config. Do I need one to accomplish this?

- I'm trying to utilize the LocationProvider to automatically create a Thing if the location is set. This is not being created when the Location is set.

- I've updated the thing-types.xml as best I could figure but there are a lot of channel-group's, channel's, and channel-type's.

How can I best troubleshoot what's going on?


EDIT:
Turns out I had a somewhat cyclical reference left over from thw WU binding. Found that and I'm all good. I referenced the Astro binding which does nearly what I am attempting. Progress! Now if I can just get the Json flowing...

1. No need for a bridge, if there isn't such a thing as an "account" with credentials or API keys that you'd have to use.
2. This should be done through a discovery service, which adds an according Thing to the Inbox.

Probably some typo or forgotten binding id replacement some where - carefully check the XMLs and the HandlerFactory implementation.

1. Yeah, that's what I figured but questioned it when it wasn't working.
2. Yeah, that's where the problem was. I think I was trying to handle this in the Handler AND the DiscoveryService. Pulled it from the Handler and all was good.
