Coming Soon – Adafruit WipperSnapper adding support for more I2C Sensors #NoCode #IoT
The Adafruit IO team has been hard at work this past month on WipperSnapper, the no-code IoT interface for Adafruit IO. Specifically, they’ve been making it easier and faster for anyone (including you!) to add support for their favorite I2C sensor to WipperSnapper. This work will result in increased support for I2C sensors in WipperSnapper so you can pull data straight from your sensors into Adafruit IO’s data-visualization interface, in less than 5 minutes.
This past Wednesday on SHOW and TELL, Brent showed off adding two sensors (an AHT20 and a DPS310) to Adafruit WipperSnapper. He also demonstrated the new Adafruit WipperSnapper Component repository on GitHub where you can add JSON definition files and images that allow components and sensors to be used with WipperSnapper.
We’re fixing a few remaining bugs, checking off our TODO lists, and will be releasing support for this soon – stay tuned!

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
