General Discussion / Issue with Wireling Kickstarter Basic Kit Tutorial
« Last post by michaelblight on January 20, 2020, 06:29:16 AM »
The video on the Wireling Kickstarter Basic Kit Tutorial page shows the button being pressed and the OLED going High -> Low -> High, and the lux continues to change after the button is pressed.

When I try the same thing, the OLED goes High -> Low and then stays there, and the lux then no longer changes. I have to turn it off and on to get it working again. Is this expected, or a newer version of the code, or do I have a fault somewhere?

Tiny Arcade / TinyScreen+ on/off switch broken... suggestions/?
« Last post by codepope on January 18, 2020, 10:42:04 AM »
So when I was popping my TinyScreen+ into a printed case, the plastic stub of the on off switch snapped away leave a lovely smooth surface. But thats far from ideal, so I'm looking for suggestions on what to do to get it going again. Its in a very fiddly place for a replacement or removal. Any thoughts?

Hi,
I would like to ask if there is any documentation on how I can connect one tinycircuit to another tinycircuit using Bluetooth. I have found some example but it uses arduino HC 05 module. Are there any sample code I could use to refer ?
Thanks for any help.

Did you figure it out? I need help with the same

General Discussion / Communication between two ble shields.
« Last post by kriti_tulsian01 on January 17, 2020, 03:27:45 AM »
I have two steups - the first setup is a tinyzeroboard with a st ble shield and a 9-axis tiny shield. Another setup is just a tinyzero board and a st ble tiny shield.
I need the two ble to communicate with each other, I should be able to receive my sensor values in my second setup via the ble communication.
How do I do this?

Absolutely!

Here is the Wireling Adapter TinyShield: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Wirelings/Wireling-Adapter_TinyShield_Tutorial/

And if you were looking for the Standard Arduino Shield: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Wirelings/Wireling-Arduino-Shield_Tutorial/

Is there a Learn page for just the Wireling Adapter shield?

All,

Thanks for all your help on the Wireling subject!

I'll check out each of your references.

Thanks again,

Hello all,

Karl is right! There is sample code for all TinyCircuits products available. Formal tutorials are being written as the support for Wirelings ramps up, but in the meantime, there may be some working example programs available on the TinyCircuits GitHub. I will say, however, that it might be more helpful to wait until there is official support so you don't end up downloading an old program version. Official support will be documented and encapsulated in a Learn Page tutorial, so that's the easiest way to tell if a program is ready to use.

To try and answer your question the most document-y way, all Wirelings use the Wireling.h library that includes some basic helper functions to help you enable power with the .begin() function, and select the port of whatever adapter board or processor you're using. So most Wireling examples start out like this:

#include <Wireling.h>

setup() {
   Wireling.begin();
   Wireling.selectPort(wirelingPort);
   ....
}

For a more direct solution, here is the Learn Page for the Soil Moisture Wireling that includes example code: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Wirelings/Soil-Moisture_Wireling_Tutorial/

And here is a Learn Page for the Wireling Adapter TinyShield: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Wirelings/Wireling-Adapter_TinyShield_Tutorial/

I'm not sure what Wireling Kit you bought, but there should be a Kit page to get you started with for most, for example, here is the Planty Kit: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Wirelings/Wireling_Planty_Kit_Tutorial/

Hope that helps!

Each Wireling has example code that you can test with your Arduino IDE. For example, the 0.42" OLED Wireling has two Download files with:

* Arduino Sample Code
* Arduino library

https://tinycircuits.com/collections/wirelings/products/0-42-oled-screen-wireling

Once you've gotten comfortable with the Moisture Sensor and Display examples, you'll run into another question, which is how to display the data from your moisture sensor. As you've noticed, Wirelings use I2C. Each Wireling has its own I2C address. To talk to a Wireling you typically set the I2C port:

   Wireling.selectPort(portForMoistureSensor);
   // read data
   Wireling.selectPort(portForDisplay);
   // write data to display

That's a simple example.

As your project grows, you'll start adding more Wirelings. Yay! Wirelings are fun!
I've got three Wirelings hooked up to my TinyZero via the Wireling I2C Adapter Shield.
I'd add a fourth, but the USB micro plug gets in the way (sadness).

I look forward to seeing your project. I'm guessing you're doing a gardening project and I'd love to see it!
