Connecting to RecurBoy over wifi

Hey all,
Lurked here for a bit, but joining up now to ask a few questions.
Recently built a RecurBoy, and it’s working great!
I’d like to add and remove some files on the RecurBoy itself, and the Pi zero I used has wifi, so I’m hoping to do it that way. I can’t find any simple tutorials on how to do this, so was hoping maybe someone could give me some tips. I’ve been using a usb to load shaders etc, but there are some effects that I would like to add to the base unit.
Thanks for any help.

theres a few different ways you can add files to the base unit (dont need wifi for this either):

  • depending on your operating system you might be able to pop sd card into your computer and copy files over directly
  • by plugging a usb cable between the data micro usb on pi (not the power one) and your computer you will be able to ssh into pi from computer ( ssh pi@raspberrypi.local should work - pw is default raspberry )

if you want to connect your pi to wifi there is a way to do this ‘heasless’ ie without needing a keyboard / screen attached to pi to configure it… this is described here remember to change password if you do connect to wifi as default password is insecure

Awesome, thank you for the tips. I’m mostly on a Mac, but do have access to a Windows machine. I’m looking for whatever is the most user friendly option as I really don’t program etc. Way more of a drag and drop person for the most part.
