Working with IoT data is a many layered process, not unlike a parfait. Scratch that, an Onion. In fact, an Onion Omega2, which is a great device that I just got yesterday does IoT really easily. This is so much easier to setup that RPI or other platforms. It also has a ton of pluggable modules that stack on top of this small chip. It's pretty small powered, but it's under $10.
The device is extremely well documented at their site.
Needed to run real tools, I added a USB stick and used that for storage and for extra SWAP space.
