Day 2, Skip Lua, lets try Arduino IDE and some sensors on nodemcu

posted in: Hacking | 0

After reading about lua programming language and its downturn in mcu (bugs and lack of space and code libraries) and after a clear sign from Benrnhard, i decided to switch to the Arduino IDE and its C libraries.

So let me try to setup a temperature/humidity sensor today….


so far so good,

  1. installed the arduino ide here
  2. Went to File -> Preferences -> Additional Boards Manager URLS, added the link now search for it and waaaaaaiiiit (5-10 min) for it to download and install, now u can choose it from the Board menu.
  3. installed the DHT11 sensor and used the File-> examples -> DHT sensor library -> DHTtester


adjusted some lines with the sensor type and now its working.

Next step-> using an android APP to read the data
