I2C LCD 16×2 FC-113 PCF8574T

1x Wemos D1 mini
1x LCD 1602 with Backpack (PCF8574T i2c)
4x Female to Female Cable
1x Bi-directional i2c logic converter

Connections (without logic converter):
Wemos 5V to VCC
D1 to SCL
D2 to SDA

Connections with logic converter:
TODO (After I order a logic converter)

CAUTION: You need to use a logic level converter for i2c as the 5V VCC is being fed to the SDA and SCL pins, so it may fry the Wemos D1 mini.
I do not have a logic converter and just used the SDA and SCL with the VCC.
3V3 does not work for the LCD, the backlight is dim and no text appears.

GNU+Linux OS with Arduino IDE and git

Open your Terminal window:

$ cd Arduino/libraries
$ git clone https://github.com/marcoschwartz/LiquidCrystal_I2C

Open your Arduino IDE
Create a new sketch and input the following:

#include Wire.h
#include LiquidCrystal_I2C.h
LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27,16,2); // set the LCD address to 0x3F for a 16 chars and 2 line display
void setup()
lcd.init(); // initialize the lcd
// Print a message to the LCD.
lcd.print("11/23/2018 WEMOS");
lcd.print("I2C LCD R1BNC");
void loop()

0x27 worked for my Wemos D1 mini, if you are using a NodeMCU then change the 0x27 to 0x3F.

Connect your wemos d1 mini microusb to the PC and Upload the code.
