Inkplate done quick
I recently received an Inkplate, and while I’m in the middle of a few interesting projects already, I couldn’t let it sit there unused. Until I get a longer chunk of time to turn it into something really nifty — maybe an embedded debugging helper of some kind — it can at least mean I no longer need to have Mail.app open.
kmlyink’s README explains:
This repo has two parts:
a Dockerised IMAP proxy written in Ruby.
It speaks plain HTTP, like an ESP can manage. It just fetches your Inbox listing and puts it in JSON.
a MicroPython module that connects to your wifi, speaks to the IMAP proxy, and formats it into the display.
It took just a few hours to get it all up and running. Delightful!
