Mbed Nucleo ST32 F401RE support for Arduino WIFI shield


I have Nucleo ST F401RE board which has Arduino support. I would like to know whether this board supports Arduino wifi shield? If so ...Do we need to add any libraries?

I have seen this question asked a few times, and last time there were no mbed libraries to support the Arduino wifishield.

You can now either try to port the code yourself (advantage here is that the shield handles most of it), or you can switch to one of these solutions: https://developer.mbed.org/components/cat/wifi/.

Erik, I am interested to write the mbed library to support Arduino wifi shield.I would like to write library and contribute to mbed. For that I need some information regarding mbed pins functionality. can you please tell me what are the pins that can be used for communicating with Arduino Wifi shield.

It uses SPI, and according to the arduino site uses the 6-pin programming header of Arduinos, which is a bit of an issue. But something you will have to figure out if want to write a library for it: I don't have one myself :)
