    Garduino: Gardening + Arduino

    Because DateTime library is outdated and won't work with current version of arduino IDE, now what? Does anyone have any working code that will run on current versions of Arduino IDE? I do have a DS3231 RTC or could get what ever is needed if it is needed.

  • Install the Theme for the Arduino IDE

    This is a really nice addition to the Arduino IDE. And as a lot of the time it's very late when I'm using the Arduino IDE, it'll come in very handy not to be burning my eyeballs, that and I'm a fan of the darker themes for just that reason. Oh and as a Linux user I found the theme files on my Linux pc in, /home/YOUR NAME XXX/Programs/arduino-1.6.XX/lib/theme folder.

  • DIY Arduino Battery Capacity Tester - V1.0

    Update for my Update: I made it, and got all the bugs worked out on a breadboard. Holey Cow I need more help, or more experience reading electrical schematics, you talk about frustrating, I guess this is something I need to work harder on. All is well now, it works and now just need to transfer the hole thing to a perfboard. P.S. I wish that when there is a mistake or update to the original drawing or code that the original poster would redo the the code or schematics completely and remove the non working ones, so that people like myself don't get confused and maybe abandon the project all together. I know I'm a complete beginner, but if I give up before I get started I'll never learn anything. I love the project and had fun building it now that it's all said and done, Thanks

  • DIY Arduino Battery Capacity Tester - V1.0

    UPDATE, Used different Oled and it is working. Reads high V, and No Battery, I would think if it is reading high V that it would start capacity test but just keeps beeping?

    DIY Small Bench Power Supply

    Please help, I know this is an old project but I'm just about ready to start building this and need a couple of questions answered to a few things that don't add up or look right to me. On the optional components list I see 2 10K resistors, I'm not seeing them at all on the schematic? Also I see 5 500K resistors on the schematic and not 4 like the components list? I'm a complete NOOB at this and wondering if I'm not reading the print right or if it is mislabeled somewhere, or some revisions didn't get documented or changed? Does anyone have a drawing of this ALL laid out on a perfboard?
