NEW GUIDE: PyPortal NASA Image of the Day Viewer @adafruit @johnedgarpark #nasa #adafruit
SPAAAAAACE! Who doesn’t want to look endlessly fascinating photos of space?! With this new learn guide, the PyPortal NASA Image of the Day Viewer you can set up your PyPortal to be a dedicated viewer for these glorious images!
NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) website provides just what the title says, a new, incredible space photo each day. You’ll use CircuitPython to code it, and the PyPortal library will make it simple to query the NASA Open API for the image, which is automatically formatted by Adafruit IO for display on the PyPortal screen.
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.
