Thank you. At least now I know why it isn't working maybe some rainy sunday I'll try to look into the code and fix it I have some experience pulling json data like this for other projects on ATMEGE328p and ESP8266. The Omega is almost overwhelming me with all the features and coding options, but I like it.
I made the newsfeed work instead and will adapt that into to train time display for my husband.
Onion sent me a new OLED, and I'm happy to report that it is working just fine. I didn't change anything else.
If I get time, I'll try to debug whats wrong with the original one. Suggestions welcome.
I did notice that when with the new OLED, when I do
% oled-exp -v
So the value changed from 0xff to 0x03. Not sure if that matters.
Thanks to everyone who tried to help out. Appreciate that.
I found the problem. Seems like the file that was created initially by Onion Webapp has all zeroes inside it. The property step was to hit the 'Save to Omega' button to save the actual content into the file.
