NEW GUIDE: Weather Matrix Display @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit
With this New Guide, you can build an internet-connected weather display with an RGB LED matrix!
Always know the current weather without even sticking you head out the window with the Weather Display Matrix.
Using CircuitPython, this project queries the Open Weather Maps site API to find out the current weather for your location. It displays the temperature and weather condition icon, while scrolling additional details such as humidity and conditions.
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.
