Adafruit Weather Station Display based on my code

And I thought that looks exactly like my weather station code for the ESP8266! Following the link to Adafruit reveals that they built a kit based on my code. They also didn’t forget a reference to the github project which contains the weather station code. Thanks Adafruit!

Fun fact is that the code went full circle: I tried for a long time to make  Adafruit’s GFX library for the OLED display work with the ESP8266 but just didn’t succeed. Then I decided to write a library myself and now they are using my code in one of their projects. That’s the beauty of open source software!

By the way, the WeatherStation Kit is available at the shop:

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.
