I had the BME280 sensor collecting dust at home and I wanted to do something useful with it :)

What it does

Records temp, humidity, stores them in a database and allows the user to view the data in a dashboard

How we built it

esp32 + BME280 + Arduino + PlatformIO + a dedicated router for the hardware side of things

Postgresql + react + ruby on rails for the server side stuff

Challenges we ran into

  • mostly front end stuff

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • the project actually works

What we learned

  • how to post data with esp32
  • expanded front end dev skills

What's next for Usagi Weather
