I have one question. Can the company deliver in Russia?
Thumby / Thumby Display Controller, Arduino Examples
« Last post by brian2 on September 29, 2021, 06:37:58 AM »
Hi there.
Thanks for making this section available.
Can you tell me if the Thumby display uses a standard SSD1306 controller, e.g.:

Can you make some example Arduino IDE code available please? Is there a standard library for display writes/button reads?

(I've previously coded for Arduboy and am interested in porting a game with lower resolution).

Which YouTube video are you referencing?
Please put some sort of information on how you made or created the tiny robot from your YouTube channel to let others who may have a interest in recreation there own version some sort of starting point. Many people would favor remaking it and customizing it to become something marvelous.

Can I get a list of the hardware you are using?

So far I can gather/guess that you have
  • Tinyscreen OLED Tinyshield
  • Adapter Wireling Tinyshield
  • Moisture Sensor Wireling

What processor board are using? You mention "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini" which I assume means you are using the TinyDuino. If that is the case, this will take more investigation.

Anyway, make sure to follow your processor board's tutorial: (use the left panel to find your processor board) so that all relevant libraries and board files get installed.

If you want, follow the tutorial here (should be a copy from the link you provided) using this example project.

Let me know what processor board you have,


I'm working on my first project: Soil Moisture Animation

I can't compile and upload any code cause Arduino 1.8.16 is not configured to support TinyScreen.  The only board available is TinyScreen+.  I don't have that one. I have the other board.

Here's the error:
Set binary mode

No device found on COM2

Send auto-baud

Set binary mode

An error occurred while uploading the sketch

Arduino: 1.8.16 (Windows 10), Board:TinyScreen+, Default

I've seen another forum indicate to use "Arduino Pro or Pro Mini."

But I get the following error:
arduino_build_400532\libraries\Soil-Moisture-Monitoring_example\TinyAnimation.cpp.o (symbol from plugin): In function `PercentBarHorizontal::tick(float)':
(.text+0x0): multiple definition of `FallDownSprite::tick()'
\arduino_build_400532\sketch\TinyAnimation.cpp.o (symbol from plugin): (.text+0x0): first defined here
collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status

status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino Pro or Pro Mini.

Any and all help would truly be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Rena,
   Please "refresh" this topic/post - I updated it 20 mins before you replied :)
readStringUntil('\n') works just fine.
Thanks for the reply!

Hello Bullwinkle,

Could you attach your program's file? Should be faster to help you debug that way!

Did you try Serial.readString before trying the Until version?

My last quick tip is to check that your baud rate in the code matches your baud rate in the serial monitor. Let me know if that helps!
