Adafruit.io WipperSnapper Update: ESP32 Support! #NoCode #IoT

Last week, we added a new board to Adafruit.io WipperSnapper – our no-code IoT project interface for adafruit.io. WipperSnapper now supports the Adafruit HUZZAH32 – ESP32 Feather Board.

If you own an Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP32, you’ll be able to participate in the Adafruit.io WipperSnapper beta (read on to learn how you can get an invite to WipperSnapper!)

Since the ESP32 does not have a native USB port, we built a tool that provisions an ESP32 with your network credentials, Adafruit IO credentials, and uploads the WipperSnapper firmware to it. All from your browser!

This means that no additional software needs to be installed on your computer to use Adafruit.io 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, Feather ESP32 Huzzah.

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.


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.
