Weather Cape


I wrote a javascript function on Cloud9 that works on the weather cape, attached to the Beagle Bone. When I connect the weathercape to my BBB, however, it doesn’t start up and locks up. I was able to work around it locking up by going to the EEPROM and completely disabling the header file. (The weather cape is no longer read)

In order to read the temperature, for example, you need to go to

When I check for this file on the BBB it doesn’t exit. I have read that I need to do an overlay so that I can access the i2c directory, which in turn, will give me access to these files. Does anyone have an idea on how to do this?

Hi Juan,
According to the list, the Weather cape is not supported on the BBB and will need a cape board revision before it could be.
