If anyone is interested, I have ported the weather display example to the Particle Photon platform. It should also work on the Particle Core :)
Here is the Nextion weather example ported for the Core and Photon. I have tested on both the devices but there may or may not be a DNS bug in the Photon version OR it is caused by my VPN (which I suspect). Please report your results!
Chris, I have not posted it yet. I am having issues with DNS resolution of the weather api domain name. I'll be testing the code on a Core to see if it works better. I'll post the code on my github as soon as I get a chance.
How can i use it for photon ?
@chris, I'll post the weather app in a dropbox and get back to you with the link. At present the code only works on the Core :)
Dirk, wifi is not meant to be meshed. You can use the Particle devices without the cloud but you do need a wifi router. Because they are open source, on guy developed a bluetooth "equivalent" (Bluz) that he says will mesh at some point. He has hub/gateway that can connect 8 Bluz and can use a Particle device as an internet gateway.
Where would I find this ported version at? Thanks
