Summary

In this project we’ll show you how to make a WiFi enabled, portable Weather Station using an ESP8266. The software, written by Daniel Eichhorn, uses the Wunderground API to pull weather data. It shows the date, time, current weather conditions, 4-day forecast and even moon phases. The user interface features lovely typography and icons that makes really a clean layout. The 2.4” TFT Feather Wing combined with the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH ESP8266 make assembling this project incredibly easy.

walls are super thin and janky~ what did everyone else do?

can you use a nodemcu esp8266 Instead?

So i soldiered the esp8266. This was the first project and first time i've soldiered to a board, my soldiers were really good i impressed my self. But any who, i tried to put the electronics in the case and the studs seem to be too big. Is it me or did the screen mounting holes become smaller then the picture? Ill fix it but trying to make sure its the electronics and not the printer or my slicing software.

Is it possible to make a larger version of the LCD.
Maybe a 4.5 TFT display? Kinda cool having one wall mounted at home. :)

normally weather stations collect data, this only displays.

Very cool but $60 + Shipping... ouch Very cool though

Is it possible to have it read the time out base on 12hr not 24hr?

Is this charged via USB? Say you want it on a desk, can you keep it plugged in instead?

Sure you can!
As explained here:
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-feather-huzzah-esp8266/power-management
you can power the board using a 4.2/3.7V battery or a USB cable for smartphones.
If you have already connected the battery and you connect also the USB plug the board will work well anyway and the battery will be recharged

Can you change the background color to match say a range of outdoor temperatures, say purple for < -10F, blue for 10 - 30F, yellow for 30-50f, green 50-70 f, orange 80-90f, red 100F+ ?? that would be really neat that way you could just simply look at it from across the room and know what the outdoor temp is.

Great idea, it's possible!

Cool !
I know it's not the subject but what is the 3d printer use? I can't recognize it...
Someone have the answer for Makuna question?

The enclosure was printed on a Sigma by BCN3D. https://www.bcn3dtechnologies.com/en/catalog/bcn3d-sigma/

Love it!
How long does it run on that battery before needing to be recharged?

With the screen turned off, it lasted over 8 hours – Basically left it "on" over night =] The screen automatically turns off after 10 seconds, which can change that in the code.

Have you tried sleeping the radio and only waking it and updating every 5/10 minutes?

thanks for answer.
