How to use Pokéapi with ESP8266 WiFi Module and an OLED Graphic Display


From instructables user sabas1080:

This Sunday we met my friend Iddar and a server to experiment with ESP8266 version 03 and what came out was an example of how to use an API with the WiFi module, this time we made ​​a small example API pokeapi.co that stores all pokemones existing information, the information shown through a pokemones SPI OLED screen and ready to perform an easy example.

Let’s begin !!

ESP8266 WiFi Module: This interesting module is a lot of fun for hobbyists and students who are interested in experimenting with the ESP8266 WiFi chipset. We bought a bunch of these modules, updated the firmware to the much-easier-to-use v0.924 and wrote some Arduino code to grab a webpage. (read more)


Monochrome 1.3″ 128×64 OLED graphic display: These displays are small, only about 1.3″ diagonal, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display. This display is made of 128×64 individual white OLED pixels, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip. Because the display makes its own light, no backlight is required. This reduces the power required to run the OLED and is why the display has such high contrast; we really like this miniature display for its crispness! (read more)
