NEW TUTORIAL: Huzzah Weather Display

NEW TUTORIAL: Huzzah Weather Display

The Huzzah ESP8266 module is an inexpensive microcontroller with WiFi capabilities. It can be programmed with the Arduino IDE so that you don’t need a separate microcontroller! This devices gets the latest weather information from Forecast.io and displays it on the 1.3″ monochrome OLED display.

Note on difficulty: this is an intermediate level project and involves running a PHP script on a web server to parse data from forecast.io before it gets read by the Huzzah. It’s helpful to know some basics about PHP and web servers before starting this project!

This project was created by Daniel Eichhorn and the code was forked to work with Adafruit hardware and libraries.

The weather icons were created by Alessio Atenzi.

Dano Wall designed the lasercut enclosure.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
