Adafruit IO WipperSnapper Glows with NeoPixel and DotStar Support! #NoCode #IoT
You can now connect addressable RGB LEDs to a development board running Adafruit’s no-code IoT firmware, WipperSnapper. This includes support for the components like WS2812 (NeoPixel), WS2801, and APA102 (DotStar). We’ve made it super simple to configure a NeoPixel or DotStar on a WiFi development board and send it data over the internet.
With Adafruit IO Actions, you can create more complex workflows. The Action below sets the NeoPixel’s color to red if the humidity value reaches over 40%:
We’ll have updated documentation for this feature by the end of this week. However, if you’d like to use it right now, update your WiFi development board running WipperSnapper to the latest (WipperSnapper beta 59) firmware.
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.
