Re: More than 4000 stars and 150 contributors on Github

We reached 1000 forks on Github. Given that there're 4333 stars now, it's an excellent ratio of folks who're ready to hack on MicroPython!

Re: Question about allocating memory in interrupts

It seems that the capabilities of callbacks from ESP8266 virtual timers are somewhat undefined. That's actually not the case. The machine module, on any system/port, deals directly with hardware, even if via a very thin shim, as in the case of "virtual timers" (there're no wonders what ar...

Re: Adafruit CircuitPython

well it has started already with pycom's forks of uPy and adafruit is now the next one. It didn't start with pycom's fork. It started the same day Damien released the source code. I myself was slow and forked just next day to contribute first patch in a few. There're currently almost 1000 forks onl...

Next stretch goal - uasyncio on esp8266 (soft launch)

The work to optimize uasyncio for ESP8266 has been ongoing for few months. The uasyncio.core module (core scheduler, no (networking) I/O) support by now has been optimized pretty well and was available for use. However, in my list there're many optimizations yet to do for the main uasyncio module be...

Re: Next stretch goal - upip running native on esp8266 (soft launch)

As a next step on this route, upip is now included even in the development builds (whereas majority of other modules are bundled only with release builds, to keep dailies lean and mean).

Re: Avoid flash wearing by altering behavior originally introduced by Espressif (the inventor of the ESP8266)

We are all working in respect of the community, that is for sure. I do not count contributing in "commits on github", "grep -r <author> docs/* | wc -l" or the like, but in commitment and helping and assisting the community. Even you should be able to see that i do work with stuf...

Re: Avoid flash wearing by altering behavior originally introduced by Espressif (the inventor of the ESP8266)

Hereby I see this poll as closed. Sorry, but this poll doesn't belong to you, but to MicroPython ESP8266 community (first steps in self-governance). The reason is that I just did realize that Paul did moderate my initial post (summary at the top). I do not like the fact that an instance is picking ...

Re: The state of the community

So far, as Paul/pfalcon would say, are just words. Who's gonna making something? Indeed who would do something? Let's look who did majority of new uPy version announcements on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/search?q=micropython . And that the source of the majority of new github stars, and sorry, w...

Re: Downloading 1GB of data with MicroPython ESP8266 port

I have attached the schematics of Wemos D1 mini, which I found on the net, just for interest. It shows a voltage divider between the module's A0 pin and the ESP module's analog input, meaning that the DC range on A0 is 3.3 V, This is offtopic on this thread, please open a separate one (as it's inde...

Re: Downloading 1GB of data with MicroPython ESP8266 port

So, after 60 hours and reaching 15GB I stopped the test with the huzzah feather device. I'm glad that to hear that about Adafruit Huzzah device. That's of course why it was the recommended device for MicroPython during the Kickstarter campaign, and remains such. We expected it to be of high quality...
