In this article, I will explain how I managed to get the WEMOS Lolin32 lite board running for more than a month on a single 1200 mAh LIPO battery. After showing my solution, I will get back on the biggest mistake I made during my tests (SPOILER: error handling is important).

Sometimes, it can be great to have a separate access point for some devices, like for example Internet of Things devices. The Pi Zero W can just do that. But what if you need it to connect to the internet at the same time? In this article, I present how to configure the Raspberry Pi Zero W as both a wifi client and an access point.

Open XFCE settings manager (or type
xfce4-settings-manager in a terminal). Then open settings editor. In “xfwm4” set “easy_click” to an empty string.
This solved my Alt-Click problem in Visual Studio Code.

In this article I’ll present how I used a Raspberry Pi 3 to create a Wifi access point. The specificity of my setup, is that the Raspberry won’t be a router but a bridge. DHCP is thus delegated to the main ADSL router and all devices connected to the AP will appear on the same network than other devices.

Pixel Miner is a game for the Pebble smartwatch. It requires you to launch the app regularly so that the character continues to dig pixels. I tend to forget to re-launch the app and the mothership seems so far that I decided to create an Automate flow that will automatically launch the app once every hour.

In this very simple example, I will setup a NodeMCU to connect to my MQTT broker and light its LED depending on received messages. This gives a very simple IOT device to test the MQTT protocol.
