Sneak Peek of Adafruit.IO Wippersnapper – Adafruit FunHouse! #WippersnapperWednesday
Adafruit has recently spent time adding support for the new Adafruit FunHouse WiFi Home Automation Development board to Wippersnapper, our no-code interface for Adafruit IO. We wanted to show off how easy it is to configure one of FunHouse’s pushbuttons to act as a digital input and send data to Adafruit IO. All in under a minute! Wippersnapper is not out yet but will be soon.
What is Wippersnapper? Wippersnapper is a no-code IoT interface for Adafruit.IO – it lets you turn any WiFi-capable board into an IoT device without any programming. Simply select what devices are connected to which pins on the hardware and it will auto-configure the firmware and even create an IO feed for visualization.
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.
