Overview

The Adafruit Discord server is hopping at all hours of the day! Keep track of how many users are currently online with this PyPortal Discord Online Counter display.

The CircuitPython code accesses the shields.io API, grabs the SVG graphic containing the user count, and then uses a regular expression search to locate the number of online Discord users. Then it displays the count on the screen, overlaid on top of a custom background image.
