    Couldn't agree more, I think parameter passing would be significant addition to Proton. However, as JohnD mentions, Les has pointed out it's not an easy thing to do.

    Re: BME280 Humidity/Pressure/Temperature code

    Hi Bob,

    The BME280 should do SPI although I haven't tried it myself. Some boards only bring out the I2C connections, others do both. I might buy one that offers SPI to play with.
