WipperSnapper No-Code IoT Platform now works with the Adafruit ESP32-S3 Reverse TFT Feather!
We’ve released Beta 57 of our no-code IoT firmware, WipperSnapper, which includes Adafruit ESP32-S3 Reverse TFT support. This is our ESP32-S3 TFT Feather but with the 240×135 color TFT display on the back side, not the front. WipperSnapper allows you to connect components and sensors to any of the ESP32-S3’s GPIO pins or I2C STEMMA connectors for your IoT projects and control them via Adafruit IO. All without programming!
If you are experiencing issues with this new platform, please make a new post on the Adafruit IO Forums. As for the TFT, we’re working on getting WipperSnapper working on TFT displays this month. 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.
