Wemos mini and OLED shield bitcoin ticker

In this example we will display the price in USD of 1 bitcoin, the data is taken from coindesk’s API and displayed on an oled display.

This is similar to our previous examples, you do not need to use a Wemos mini or the OLED shield below but this makes the project easier to build

Here is the oled shield for the Wemos mini

Here is the wemos mini

Code


#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <Wire.h>

#define PIN_RESET 255 //
#define DC_JUMPER 0 // I2C Addres: 0 - 0x3C, 1 - 0x3D
String id;
String value;
String json;

MicroOLED oled(PIN_RESET, DC_JUMPER); // I2C Example

WiFiClient client;

// delay between updates
const unsigned long postingInterval = 60L * 1000L;
unsigned long lastConnectionTime = 0;

delay(50);

}

int check_connect = 0;

}
else

}
}

void loop()
{

if (cnt++ == 10000)
{

{
}
}
}

if (millis() - lastConnectionTime > postingInterval)
{
httpRequest();
unsigned int i = 0; //timeout counter
int n = 1; // char counter
char json[500] ="{";

while (!client.find("\"USD\":{")){}

while (i<20000)
{
if (client.available())
{
char c = client.read();
json[n]=c;
if (c=='}') break;
n++;
i=0;
}
i++;
}

StaticJsonBuffer<500> jsonBuffer;
JsonObject& root = jsonBuffer.parseObject(json);

String newjson = root["code"];
String value = root["rate"];
id = newjson.substring(9,12);

// value = newjson.substring(41,51);
oled.display();
oled.clear(PAGE); // Clear the display's internal memory
oled.clear(ALL); // Clear the library's display buffer
oled.setCursor(0,1);
oled.print(value);
oled.display();

id="";
value="";
}
}

testing

You should see something like this on the oled display
