Overview

Let's look at more pictures of adorable animals! They're so dang floofy and cute I can't stand it!

This project uses the PyPortal's ESP32 WiFi co-processor to retrieve images from a cat, dog, or fox image repository and then display them on the screen!

The project is all written in CircuitPython, and uses the Adafruit IO image converter service to turn those animal .jpegs into PyPortal-friendly .bmp images.
