LOL, well it’s a good thing you were being a coward, because that pin list on my github is meant for a bare esp12 module (wemos d1 mini doesn’t need all of that). You may have read about esp8266 bootmodes and how they depend on pin state(s). Those additional 4k7 resistors are spec’d in order to enable a bare esp module to bootup for normal operation. That’s why we suggested you get a wemos d1 mini… it already has all the needed resistors, and even goes a step further and it has 2 buttons for reset and flash-mode. This makes the D1 mini ideal for beginners… experts even like 'em for certain situations (bare esp is better left for battery powered stuff where the D1 regulator quiescent is too much, and other more custom circuit/codes that require access to the bootmode pins… for example I have a PIR that lasts 3yrs on an 18650. This requires an LDO with very low Iq, and a custom circuit that manipulates CH_PD).
So all you really would have to do to play with my code is flash it, and probably plug in the sensors to the pins as stated on the table (been a while, but the code likely has some error checking built in where it may not operate normally without all the sensors wired up).
[edit: Please post if you need more assistance. Also regarding code, I just started playing with esphome (just added 4 new nodes over the weekend) and have to admit it’s a ton easier/faster to get esp modules talking to HA vs manual coding. You should have a look, esphome has board definitions for the d1 mini… also has OTA, and what I like most is compiling/upload is built in to HA with just some small bit of yaml to configure each device. If you go this route, for now use the dev branch, because the current release (1.14.x) is broken (so add
“esphome_version”: “dev” to your addon config). Esphome should be adequate for most applications since they have a big pallette of sensor drivers to choose from, and decent docs on how to setup. Of course, nothing can replace the power and flexibility of hard C code, but if you just need some DHT’s spread around to report to HA, why bother when you can just click a bit on esphome? ;D]
