WIoT-2 Weather Station – Nextion TFT with ESP8266

This is a continuation from my prior WIoT weather station.   I decided to upgrade to a Nextion TFT LCD due to issues I was having with SPI comms between the Adafruit Huzzah ESP8266 and the RA8875 Controller.  After some research I discovered that this is a common issue with the ESP8266 and SPI communications.  So, what is WIoT-2?  Well, it’s lots of things…  I use it as a cloud-connected (IoT) info center of...
