ESP8266 and 128 x 32 OLED example

This was a 128 x 32 OLED display that I purchased , the module does not need a  backlight, self-illumination, the display performance is better than the traditional LCD display, it also has a lower power consumption.

Driver IC: SSD1306
Size: 0.91 inch OLED
Resolution: 128 x 32
IIC interface
Display Color: Blue

Pin Description:

GND: Power Ground
VCC: Power + (DC 3.3 ~5v)
SCL: Clock Line
SDA: Data Line

This is the module that I purchased

Code

You need to install 2 libraries – the Adafruit GFX and Adafruit SSD1306 libraries, these libraries are easily installed via the library manager

This is the default example which only needs one code change to work with a Wemos Mini
