  • Not for nothing, but Experiment 3 won me some WifePoints by automating the Christmas lights this year. Thanks, SparkFun!

    Downloading ThingSpeak Library

    If you are having problems downloading the v1.2.1 ThingSpeak Communication Library for Arduino & ESP8266 by MathWorks from the Arduino library manager, try downloading the library directly from the GItHub repository [ https://github.com/mathworks/thingspeak-arduino ]. I could only download the previous versions on my Arduino IDE v.1.6.5 by manually installing the Arduino Library for ESP8266.

    Downloading SparkFun_RHT03 Library

    If you see this error, you downloaded the wrong RHT03 Library:

    C:\Users\....\Documents\Arduino\libraries\SparkFunRHT03/SparkFun_RHT03.h:15:25: fatal error: application.h: No such file or directory
     #include "application.h"
                         ^
    compilation terminated.
    Error compiling.
    

    There was a case where a customer downloaded the RHT03 library for the Particle Photon and they had modified the file name to include the underscore “_” between SparkFun and RHT03. By downloading the correct library [ https://github.com/sparkfun/SparkFun_RHT03_Arduino_Library as linked in the tutorial, the example code from this tutorial was able to compile.
