Pico W with Adafruit IO

Post by kenidowa »

I am using a Pico W with the latest Beta release of 8.0 release 4. I was working through a Adafruit learn exercise
"Quick-Start the Pico W WiFi with CircuitPython" https://learn.adafruit.com/pico-w-wifi- ... dafruit-io . The second to last one uses Adafruit IO. When I try to setup my device it does not have the Pico W as a device selection. Will this device get setup there?

You should not need to select your device based on the guide link you dropped.

Can you post a screen shot and the direct guide section link? This should be a matter of setting up the code.py / lib folder and .env file on the Pico W directly.

On the Adafruit IO site it asks you to select your device. https://io.adafruit.com/kenidowa/wippersnapper/new/
There are 17 devices non are the Pico W. All of them seemed to be ESP32's. So was thinking this one would need to be setup.

WipperSnapper is separate from CircuitPython. I don't believe it has Pico W support yet.

I understand that Whippersnapper is separate from Circuitpython but I started posting here because the Adafruit Learn https://learn.adafruit.com/pico-w-wifi- ... dafruit-io was for CircuitPython on a Pico W. I was using it to try out the lastest 8.0 Beta of CircuitPython and got to this second to last step/exercise and I couldn't complete it because the the Adafruit IO doesn't support Pico W. But it is part of this learn exercise and I thought someone might want to know. Just trying to be constructive and positive.
Thanks,
Ken

What step exactly? "On Adafruit IO, you can add the feeds to your dashboard to view your data over time." ? That could be better explained.

I think you clicked "New Device". Instead, try clicking "Feeds" and you should see "pitemp" and "pihumid" listed.
