A control panel.

The very first prototype of the minimal display that Karadio will use.
It is made with a tiny lcd 84X48 84 * 48 Nokia Module 5110 Lcd
The next one (waiting for it) will be a 0.96" I2C IIC SPI Serial 128X64 White OLED LCD LED Display Module for Arduino
See it at:

I have added a "paypal Donate" button on the "Settings" panel.
It will motivate me to buy some hardware and to continue the development of this project.

A new lcd, a new software.This software runs too with the nokia5110 due to the magic of the u8glib.
Many other lcd's can now be used with this release ....
Released on github and http://karadio.karawin.fr/karadioU8glib.zip
See instructions on the u8glibConf.h file

Once the serial output interface has proved the feasibility, it is time to test the input serial interface of command.
The magic of the modular design is that it is .... modular.
To test the serial rx of command, what can we do?
A remote IR or 433 MHz RF control.
Everybody has an old unused remote control. So we need only a pro mini as usual and an IR receiver or with a kit like https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/Hot-Selling-1pcs-New-Infrared-IR-Wireless-Remote-Control-Module-Kits-For-Arduino-Wholesale/32334118062.html?spm=2114.06010108.3.20.dks3Id&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_4_10065_10068_10084_10083_10080_10082_10081_10060_10061_10062_10056_10055_10037_10054_10033_10059_10032_10078_10079_10077_10073_10070_10052_423_10050_10051,searchweb201603_9&btsid=eab7add7-3d55-47c9-a695-3a0112ac058f
May be, I will do it one day or other...
I will thanks here the 11 paypal donator s
Be sure that I will improve this project until I am alive (and have some spare time).
Yes, It it motivating

- Add an IR remote control to the lcd pro mini
- Allow volume adjustment per station
- Memorize multi AP configurations
- Add a reset button for the equalizer
- Add some other LCD equipment (a color one is coming)
- Add a debug command to choose the uart trace debug level: sys.debug("x") with x=0 No debug trace, to x=5 full verbose debug trace.
- sys.led("x") with x=0: led blink (default heartbeat), x=1: led on when playing.

A quick note about the AP configurations in setting:
As you may noticed, now in 1.1.4 release you can specify two AP.
When the first one is not found, the second one is tried. If not found, karadio is set in SoftAP mode at 192.168.4.1
Only the AP fields can be configured, not the ip, mask and gateway.
If you need to have two AP, the best choice is to use the dhcp. But the ip may be difficult to predict, so i recommend to configure a static lease on your router to force dhcp to choose your preferred ip. To do that, I added the mac address of the esp. See the manual of your router about dhcp static lease.
If you need some other details, write a comment.
Thanks for your attention.

Many pcb projects are in progress to run KaraDio.
Dimitris works on a pcb with esp8266, the external ram and the vs1053 with the complete set of option by juumper (a0 and type of ram).
I hope he can sell it soon (with mounted components).
discover1977 has made a pcb not yet finished, but with the full hardware including the lcd and more.
See his project at https://github.com/discover1977/Wi-Fi-WEB-radio
Christophe has made a minimalist pcb to be used with KaraDio, but can be used in many other projects. The lc soft vs1053 can be plugged directly on the pbc.
