Hi, I am interested in adding a new push button (tactile switch) to the Puck.js. My idea:
I would like to add a button. When the user presses this button, a action should be startet (e.g. a message should be send via bluetooth). Unfortunately I am not sure how I can solder it to the Puck.js. The most tactile switches have 4 "legs" to solder (e.g. https://bit.ly/2BTSErG).
Do I have to solder the tactile switch directly to the Puck.js or is there a possibility to solder one end of a connector (e.g. an extension cable) to the Puck.js and the other end to the tactile switch? It would be perfect if the position of the switch is not fix.
Where should I solder the switch (or maybe the connector) and which tactile switch do you recommend? Simply to the GPIO pin? And do I need a resistor or something like that to get it work?
And can I really snip of two diagonal pins of the tactile switch?
