WipperSnapper No-Code IoT Platform now works with Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266!
We just released Adafruit.io WipperSnapper support for the Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP8266! Over the past few weeks, Melissa worked on a web-based installation tool to upload firmware to an ESP8266 or ESP32. Additionally, this web tool also generates a LittleFS filesystem containing your Adafruit IO and WiFi network credentials and uploads them to your ESP32/ESP8266 board.
What does this mean? You do not have to leave a Google Chrome browser to install Adafruit.io WipperSnapper on the Feather ESP8266 or Feather 32. There are no longer any IDEs to install, toolchains to download, or HEX files to flash over a command line! Installation and usage are all in the browser.
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.
