Hey, what's up, guys? Akarsh here from CETech.Today we are going to make a project which is a weather monitor which displays all the weather-related information on an E-Paper display from DFRobot.The Display is connected to an esp8266, you can use an esp32 as well with this display. The esp8266 is connected to the internet using wifi whose details can be changed through the code which I have provided on GitHub. So let's get started!I have also made a video about building this project in detail, I recommend watching that for better insight and detail.

    To make this you will need an ESP8266 board or an ESP32 and you can also add a battery if you want.

    For the display I used an EPaper Firebeetle module.

    I suggest to use a board from DFRobot with this module as the pinout will be compatible and you will face no issues anywhere, I used Firebeetle board from DFRobot as it has on board battery charging and monitoring solution.
