I discovered Littlebits two days ago, and I’m quite impressed about what we can do with.
I thought of project : I want to display 3 numbers which must be updated often from an internet service which have an API (I have programming skills and a server).
I have read that we can update a littlebit module via cloudbit with the littlebits API - https://github.com/littlebits/cloud-api-lessons
So my script would be on my server, executed often (using crontab).
My issue is : I’not sure of what I really need to buy.
Main question : Does I need 3 cloudbits + 3 number module or just 1 cloudbit, 1 fork or branch module and 3 number module ?
=> Can I control 3 number modules distinctly with a fork/a branch + a cloudbit ?
I thought also of another way : I have a lot of old computer at my home that I can let 24h/24 switched on.
Is there any way to update a littlebits number module from a computer? I wasn’t sure that I can with the P3 USB Adapter (is it only power ?)
With what I have read, the Arduino module isn’t a good solution for an internet updated project.
As you can see, I have programming skills but I’m a bit lost with electronics.
thanks for your help and sorry for my poor english,
