[UPDATED GUIDE] Using #LoraWAN and The Things Network with Feather @thethingsntwrk
If you have a Feather with a small flash size (like the Feather 32u4), our The Things Network with Feather guide’s code and library will barely fit (taking up over 96% of space on the board). We have good news for people wanting to work experiment with LoRaWAN on their Adafruit Feather and arduino-likes – we released a new library!
TinyLoRa, an Arduino Library for Feathers and arduino-compatibles using the HopeRF RFM95/96W module. It’s less than 8kB, making it perfect for smaller chips! It’s also compatible with the Feather M0 LoRa, in case you want a smaller communications library for your speedy M0, allowing you to install all the libraries you want (or a larger sketch size).
We’ve added threenewpages for getting started with TinyLoRa in this updated guide.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
