Adafruit.io WipperSnapper Update: Support for more ESP32-S2 development boards and beta information #IoT @adafruit @adafruitio
Last week, we added two boards to Adafruit.io WipperSnapper – our no-code IoT project interface for adafruit.io. WipperSnapper now supports the Adafruit MagTag 2.9″ and the Metro ESP32-S2!
If you own either of these boards, you’ll be able to participate in the Adafruit.io WipperSnapper beta (read on to learn how you can get an invite to WipperSnapper!)
We’ve also brought the provisioning and installation system for ESP32-S2 boards in line with SAMD51+AirLift: Simply drag the WipperSnapper .UF2 file onto your board’s USB mass storage and it’ll install WipperSnapper.
How can I get an invite to the Adafruit.io WipperSnapper Beta?
First – You’ll need a compatible board to use with WipperSnapper. WipperSnapper currently supports the following hardware: Metro ESP32S2, FunHouse ESP32-S2, MagTag ESP32S2, PyPortal, Metro SAMD51+AirLift.
Then – Navigate to the official Adafruit Discord Server (https://discord.gg/adafruit) and post in #help-with-adafruit-io that you’d like a WipperSnapper beta invite. We’ll message you over Discord with further instructions!
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.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
