Geppetto Module Shopping Made Easy

November 30, 2017 | Celine Marie Barrozo

At Gumstix, we’re always thinking of ways to make sure you have the best experience when using any of our applications, whether it’s the store or Geppetto. With this in mind, we updated the shelf names and module grouping in Geppetto to help you find things easier.


Moving modules from the Headers shelf

We pulled out a handful of modules from the Header shelf to its own category like Connector (Signals), Converters, and Motor and Relays.

Renaming shelves

We also renamed ‘IO’ shelf and called it ‘Lights and Switches’ which is more descriptive of the modules it contains.

Additionally, we renamed ‘Network’ to be ‘Network and Wireless’ because it does include all wired and wireless modules in Geppetto.

These are all initial changes. We plan to rename and move modules around to help you find the modules you need faster. If you have any feedback and suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
