I discovered Blynk last week.
Create an app for any connected project or product based on Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ESP8266 and other hardware
I saw it could work with Adafruit CC3000 breakout board… and WiDo is working with this library. So lets test it !
- Grab a WiDo
- Add the proper libraries
- Connect 3 leds to the WiDo on pin 11, 12 and 13 (but any other pin will do !).
- Download this sketch
- Rename config.h.sample into config.h and customize the values depending on your environment
- Upload on the WiDo (don’t forget to specify the proper board : it’s a Leonardo clone)
And that’s it !
You’ll notice the code is rather simple : almost all the magic happens in Blynk.run() whicg updates the led status when you press a button on Blynk App and a bit in Blynk.virtualWrite() which sends a value on virtual pin 1 and is used to blink a virtual led.
