eink weather stationI want to make a small weather & reminder to throw the trash for my home entrance. Depending on the day in Japan you're supposed to throw one or another type of garbage and I always miss the "non-burnable" one, because it's the "second and fourth Thursday of the month"... So this toy will show me the weather, a few other interresting info and if it's the day for what type of trash.
Points of interrest
Bill of materials
InstallationFor the eInk:
All is here: https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/2.13inch_e-Paper_HAT. Now I think of it I think the bcm2835 extra stuff is not needed if you use Python and GPIO... give a try and tell me.
For the weather:
Python Weather API based on Yahoo!:The above stopped working Jan 2019, so I moved to WeatherBit.io. You register, they have a free plan and comprehensive and simple Json API. I added a class to parse it and extract what I need. You'll need to put your private key in the config.py file though.
Source codeOn the git : https://github.com/AlanFromJapan/alanarduinotools/tree/master/Python/EinkWeatherStation
Pretty simple, you have 2 buttons [next and validate], the code revolves around 3 main panels that you can go through by clicking [next]:
