Nameing your Puck/s

Posted on
  • Is there a way to give a name to a Puck? Thinking of something along the lines of a hostname.
    I currently have five of the critters. I've stuck labels on the back of each so I can remember which is which. But something like a hostname would be nice.

  • You can rename the devices with Zadig I believe, by checking the "Edit" box to the right of the dropdown.

  • I think in Zadig it's just naming the Bluetooth adaptor? I could be wrong though.

    You can set the name by executing the command NRF.setAdvertising({},{name:"Foo"})

    It's worth noting that due to a historical issue with some Web Bluetooth implementations the Web Bluetooth IDE and puck.js library search for devices starting with the name Puck or Espruino - so if you change the name to something else it might be hard to connect with them.
