WipperSnapper is a firmware designed to turn any WiFi-capable board into an Internet-of-Things device without programming a single line of code. WipperSnapper connects to Adafruit IO, a web platform designed (by Adafruit!) to display, respond, and interact with your project's data.

Simply load the WipperSnapper firmware onto your board, add credentials, and plug it into power. Your board will automatically register itself with your Adafruit IO account.

From there, you can add components to your board such as buttons, switches, potentiometers, sensors, and more! Components are dynamically added to hardware, so you can immediately start interacting, logging, and streaming the data your projects produce without writing code.


Adafruit IO and WipperSnapper are in beta and are actively being developed to add functionality, hardware, and fix bugs.

We encourage you to try out the WipperSnapper firmware with the understanding that it is not final release software and is still in development.

If you encounter any bugs, glitches, or difficulties during the beta period, or in this guide, please file an issue on the Adafruit IO support page.
