Parts for first bluetooth project

by appdevjan on Wed Mar 24, 2021 8:39 am

Hi, I'm confused on what parts are needed. I want to do my first bluetooth project where I use GATT.
Client will be a mobile phone.
Server will be ???? something from adafruit that has BLE and GATT characteristics.
I've looked at:
Do I just buy this standalone and start programming the bluetooth client?

I've also looked at:
https://learn.adafruit.com/ble-hid-keyb ... rd-buttons
But it seems to require a lot of parts and the documentation is not real clear to a newbie how to put all those parts together.

My second confusion is how much programming I would need to do for the server. If I buy the BLE capable parts from adafruit, do I need to program anything on it to act like the BLE server? Or will it work "out of the box" once I download its library? I know nothing about Python and programming python-based controllers. I read the documentation for the
keyboard button but it wasn't clear from a newbie point of view what programming of the boards was needed.

Thanks for helping out a newbie!
