What The ?
OK, here's how it all works:
1: Get hold of a kit
(it comes as a load of electronics bits)
The kit comes with all the bits you need, except for the Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP32 (which we can also provide) and a battery.
You can buy the kit directly from us ( 🇬🇧 UK only for now) and we'll ship it out to you next working day.
More countries and suppliers will be coming soon. Contact us on social media to let us know where you are and you want a button if you're outside of the UK and we'll prioritise the areas where there is most interest.
2: Follow our assembly guide
(you will need a soldering iron)
Now's the fun (and potentially dangerous part if you're a spanner with your soldering iron). Follow our guide on Github (click the button below) to assemble the button by soldering in the various components onto the Push-thru PCB board.
Once you've done, solder on the female headers to the asembled board (now referred to as a Featherwing) and also the male headers the Feather.
If you're feeling really creative, print a 3d printed case for yourself...
3: Code the device
(you'll need a PC,Mac or Linux - we'll show you how to code)
So we've got a button, but no code! Worry not - we'll have you up and running in no time. You'll need the Arduino IDE (available here: https://www.arduino.cc/en/software) and a micro USB cable that you can plug between your computer and the Feather.
Now that's done you need to visit the Push-Thru Github page and clone the repo https://github.com/Maker-Appliances/PushThru-Arduino-Code, before configuring it and flashing it onto your device. You'll find a full guide there on how to get things working.
