Documentation Status Discord Build Status

CircuitPython wrapper library for communicating with Adafruit IO.


This driver depends on:

You'll also need a library to communicate with an ESP32 as a coprocessor using a WiFiManager object. This library supports connecting an ESP32 using either SPI or UART.

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Usage Example

Create an Adafruit IO Client object

io = RESTClient(aio_username, aio_key, wifi)

Sending data to an Adafruit IO feed

io.send_data(feed, data)

Receiving data from an Adafruit IO feed

data = io.receive_data(feed)

Creating a new feed named circuitpython with a description

feed = io.create_new_feed('circuitpython', 'an Adafruit IO CircuitPython feed')

Listing the record of a specified feed:

feed = io.get_feed('circuitpython')

Building locally

Zip release files

To build this library locally you'll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install circuitpython-build-tools

Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:

source .env/bin/activate

Then run the build:

circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit-circuitpython-adafruit_io --library_location .

Sphinx documentation

Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme

Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:

cd docs
sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html

This will output the documentation to docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to locally verify it will pass.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
