@Damien:
Could you share which board you use for dev and testing. It might be helpful, if people first start on a common HW resp. source to avoid misleading bug reports due to board differences or unreliable sources.
Which brings me back to my idea of having a nice clean and clear separation between SoC and boards in form of two clearly named libs ;)

I'm using the LoPy, but it's also known to work on the SparkFun ESP32 Thing.

I am very happy to report that, after some discussion, Pycom will be joining forces with us on the ESP32 port! We will be merging our efforts and code and the core ESP32 port will be MIT licensed with contributions from Pycom.

Here is their announcement (see their forum https://forum.pycom.io/topic/550/pycom-and-damien-george-join-forces-for-the-esp32):

--------
We are pleased to confirm that after further discussions with Damien George, we have decided to work together on a single Port of MicroPython for the ESP32. This Port will be MIT licensed thus enabling Pycom and the existing MP community to build a super-rich and quality code base hosted on the official MicroPython repository.

We will be submitting Pull-requests to the MP repository over the next 2 to 3 weeks starting early next week. When the Port is feature ready, Pycom will switch to using this as the source to build the firmware for all our ESP32 based products.

In Pycom’s Github account, we will host a fork of this jointly built ESP 32 port where we will add our advanced network features such as LoRa, Sigfox and cCellular all of which will be covered by our existing GPL V3.

Pycom is committed to propagating MicroPython amongst the IoT industry as we firmly believe this great language is the ideal solution for rapid product development in an already complex space.
--------

This should benefit all users of the ESP32 as this collaboration will lead to a high-quality and well maintained port.

Excellent.

Micropython works well on my SparkFun ESP32 Thing.

Thanks to all for the hard work
