#ESP8266: Improving the WeatherStation Display

These tiny OLED displays are cool, but they are also… well… tiny. To get the most of the screen real estate I started working on a little framework that allows you to display different cards on a carousel, which then are transitioned from one to the next. Here is a little demo.

Unlike the first version which was programmed for the LUA firmware, this update is made for the Arduino IDE. It looks like I will have much more degrees of freedom here, since the heap doesn’t seem to get depleted so easily like on the LUA platform. Since u8glib has not been ported to the ESP8266 Arduino IDE yet and the Adafruit library didn’t work for me I had to get the necessary code running myself. Well… not entirely myself, the code here helped me to get started. Stay tuned for the final release and let me know if you like the preview

Update: The WeatherStation Kit!

Now a beer! Did you like this post? It often takes me several hours of my free time to write one. If I was your neighbour would you offer me a beer for the hard work I did for you? The beauty is: beers can be teletransported with a painless donation using Paypal. A beer in a Swiss bar costs about USD $4.80. Or use this affiliate link if you order something on Banggood and I'll get a small kickback. Thank you!
