With this project, you will always know what the weather is. The eInk Breakout will always let you know what the weather is. If you lose power to your Raspberry Pi or other single board computer, you will still be able to see what the latest weather update is because the ePaper display still shows the last thing written to it!
Using Python, this project queries the Open Weather Maps site API to find out the current weather for your location and displays it along with an informative icon.
This project makes use of the meteocons True Type Font to display the icon, so there are no actual images used in this project.
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.
