Autumn Update

Some recent updates on the Github:

  • Interrupted is now compatible with the Arduino (1.8.4 and above) and Energia (18 and above) IDEs. However you have to cut-and-paste the examples, for now.
  • Tasks is also compatible with the Arduino and Energia IDEs, and (maybe) PlatformIO. Ditto caveat about examples.
  • uC-Makefile has been updated for the latest Arduino and Energia IDEs. Unfortunately Energia has discontinued support for the Stellarpad, so this option is now busted.
  • invaders now compiles under Energia 17, the last release to support Stellarpads.
  • WeatherGuy has had an ESP8266 refresh as WifiWeatherGuy. Stay tuned for more information on that.

ESP12-e Emergency Development Board

Mini-breadboards or DIY ESP Development Board?

What do you do when you can't wait for cheap breadboards to arrive from China? Build a development board of course!

The picture shows the work of an afternoon, to make a dev-board for the ESP-12 "IO Adapter Plate Expansion" (ebaysoldered up last time, which inconveniently didn't fit any breadboards around the house.

The circuit is based on this one except that it's powered from the FTDI cable.

The following week the mini-breadboards arrived. Haven't used them yet!
