Overview

Have a favorite recurring weekly event you don't want to miss? Perhaps it's your favorite TV show, or livestream? The PyPortal Weekly Countdown Clock has got you covered!

Build your own PyPortal Weekly Countdown Clock and then customize it for the event of your choice. All coded in CircuitPython, it gets the precise time from the internet using built-in WiFi, then draws the display with the days, hours, and minutes until the event.

Then, you'll get a new image displayed during the event, such as an "On Air" sign. At the completion of the event, the timer starts again, counting down again for the next week.
