NTP clock using OLED Wemis Lolin ESP32

   I buy an interesting ESP32 development board module because it has built-in OLED display drived with SSD1306 chip (is classc 0.96" OLED display).
  I combine 2 sketches to use NTP clock data (see for more info). This sketch is ESP32_OLED_SSD1306_NTP_0.ino who use ESP32-OLED0.96-ssd1306 and NTPtimeESP libraries.
   You can see how is clock displayed on OLED display while whatching NTP clock using OLED Wemis Lolin ESP32 movie.

Matrix clock with alarm

   At begin of this year I find article Mini led clock and I test using changed sketch (mini_clock_1a.ino) and schematic
   Also, I made 2 movie:
clock on matrix led display with MAX7219
clock on matrix led display with MAX7219 (2)
   Now, I add alarm feature, schematic is now
   Using mini_clock_1_2.ino sketch now you can see data and if alarm is activate by pushing second button (if alarm is deactivate, on screen not apear text with them).
    I made matrix mini clock with alarm movie when you can see how clock work

WebServer with ESP32

   I buy an Geekcreit® ESP32-DevKit development board and I want to test quickly, so I use information from article ESP32 Web Server – Arduino IDE writted by Rui Santos.
    I discover that development boar has 2 built-in leds, one at GPIO0 and one at GPIO27 (while om net is mentioned just GPIO27), so I change the sketch to use this leds and to invert logical level because leds are connected thru resistors at +3,3V not GND.
   Changed sketch is ESP32_WebServer.ino and you can upload in ESP32 development board after follow steps from article Installing the ESP32 Board in Arduino IDE (Windows instructions).
   After upload my sketch, in serial monitor it appear IP adress for local WebServer
   First, both leds are off
but after you push virtual button from webserver named GPIO0 led will lit (upper button)
and after push botton button (GPIO27) apropriate led will lit
 To have just GPIO27 led lit, must pust on GPIO0 button
   I made Web Server with red ESP32 board from Banggood movie where is presented how WebSwever control the two leds

Show Temperature and Humidity as WiFi SSID with ESP8266 and DHT22 Sensor

   I use informations from article Show Temperature and Humidity as WiFi SSID with ESP8266 and HTU21D Sensor, just change sensor. Instead HTU21D, I use DHT22 (AM2302), my schematic is
   I program NodeMCU development board (work any development board with ESP8266: Lolin, Adafruit, WeMos, etc) with Arduino IDe software, using dht_custom_ssid_exp8266_1.ino sketch.
   For frogram ESP8266 as Arduino must follow steps from เพิ่มบอร์ด ESP8266 ใน Arduino IDE (or from my article named Placa NodeMcu v.0.9 programata in Arduino IDE).
  Also, you need 3 library:
   Now, we can find Wi-Fi network with custon name (ESP8266 is in AP mode):
- on Android phone
- on PC with Windows 7
   Name of SSID will change at every 10 seconds, but best view is in Android phone (quick change).
   I made Show Temperature and Humidity as WiFi SSID with ESP8266 and DHT22 Sensor video to see how this system work:

128x128 1.5" OLED display with SSD1327 controlled by ESP32

original article

   I received an interesting display for test (OLED technology, 128x128 resolutios, SSD1327 driver) for made to work with ESP32 development board.

   Default, connexion is for SPI, but you can change to i2c connexion, see in schematic from here.
   I search info and after few tests, I used with good results u8g2 library  and my config is
U8G2_SSD1327_MIDAS_128X128_F_4W_SW_SPI u8g2(U8G2_R0, /* clock=*/ 13, /* data=*/ 12, /* cs=*/ 14, /* dc=*/ 27, /* reset=*/ 26);
   You can see 1.5” OLED display with ESP32 movie

128x160 1.8" TFT display with ST7735 controlled by ESP32

   I give an 1.8" TFT display with 128x160 resolution. It use ST7735 as driver.
   I wanted to use together with an ESP32 development board and first I search information about this connexion but just two article and an topic on Arduino forum was usefull.
   First usefull article was 128×128 Colour LCD to ESP32 from Schematic for connexion is
It used Xtronical ST7735 library derivated from Adafruit ST7735 library... I tested, but I can't display all info in all four modes (0, 90, 180 and 270 degree) even if I change resolution in library as 128x160 not 128x128.
  I made 128x160 1.8" TFT display with ST7735 controlled by ESP32 to be more clear
   In article Cheap 1.77 Inch TFT-screen on ESP32 from and  an topic on Arduino forum I discover Bodmer's TFT_eSPI library. After few time testing, I can see ok info on display.
   My changed User_Setup.h works fine for me, see in 128x160 1.8" TFT display with ST7735 controlled by ESP32 (2)

"Daytime Running Light" module (DRL) with ATtiny85

   A reader of my sites and blogs, Mr. Liviu Hinoveanu wanted to replace classical DRL module made with 555 with Attiny85 programmed in Arduino style.
   He send me the schematic and PCB designed with Livewire and PCB Wisard software:

   After I undertand what module must work, I write DRL_ATtiny85.ino sketch.
   Mr. Hinoveanu made module and upload sketch in ATiny85 like in article from Programarea unui microcontroler ATTiny85 cu sketch Arduino.
    In movie named DRL cu ATtiny85 you can see who module work, but description are in romanian language:
   After engine start, I can adjunst in few stepts intensity of lights (from minimum to maximum, by pushing button repeatedly, when value in smaximum and pres button intensity go to minimum...).
   If I set manual light from original light switch, module is off.
   Whne enggine strop, module made a "dinamic lights"style from maximum to off in short time.
   Module detect engine start by increase tension value on battery because work the alternator).
