Raspberry Pi E-Ink Weather Station using Python

With this project, you will always know what the weather is. The eInk Bonnet or Breakout will always let you know what the weather is. If you lose power to your Raspberry Pi or other single board computer, you will still be able to see what the latest weather update is because the ePaper display still shows the last thing written to it!

Using Python, this project queries the Open Weather Maps site API to find out the current weather for your location and displays it along with an informative icon.

This project makes use of the meteocons True Type Font to display the icon, so there are no actual images used in this project.”
