I realized I wanted a cheat sheet for working with box drawing on Adafruit’s Internet of Things Printer while I was playing around with making the Pachube data feed look swanky. This is my attempt to capture the character codes for the various types of possible boxes. This was gathered from a combination of the printer’s test printout, Anders’s work on this forum thread, and the Unicode section of Wikipedia’s entry on box drawing. If you can think of additional characters or a different breakdown in the information that would make the cheat sheet more useful, please feel free to leave feedback in the comments section
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
