Notefile size -- with or without a template

Will using a template reduce (or increase) the size of the Notefile being written to the Notecard (vs no template)?

Hi @richf,

Yes, definitely! Templated Notes are stored as fixed-length binary records vs JSON objects, so they are much smaller in size. See note.template and the low bandwidth guide for more details.


Hi Rob,

Thx for the quick response … can a Template include an array? For example, an array with a fixed element order of Boolean,String,Integer, Float …

regards, Rich …

Hi @richf,

Note templates do not provide support for a data type of array. However, as of the most recent firmware release (3.2.1), variable-length strings are now supported which may be helpful to you?
