initial micropython support for PyCharm

There is initial support for micropython (just the microbit at this stage; more boards in development) at https://github.com/vlasovskikh/intellij-micropython

Haven't tried it myself yet

Which esp8266 SDK does Micropython use?

Does it use the espressif RTOS or non-RTOS SDK? Or some other SDK?

Re: mu editor for micropython

Hi Peter, et. al., I found for my setup I had to select the fourth element in the serial available_ports array in logic.py, instead of 0, because my esp8266 is at /dev/ttyUSB3. See below: ... Flashing is not working for me. I'm wondering if that is because nobody has modified the flashing to work w...

IR receiver/transmitter for ESP8266?

It seems the ESP8266 has some hardware support for infrared remote control - see chapter 13 of http://www.espressif.com/sites/default/ ... e_en_0.pdf

Has anyone had a go at exposing this in micropython?

Re: Power-off from python?

Another thought: I currently have VCC connected to CH_PD (chip enable). Presumably as the battery voltage drops, at some point this will be below CH_PD's threshold, and the chip should power off. Do we know what that threshold is? Is it absolute, or relative the VCC?

You'd need a button or to short a couple of pins once the battery has been recharged.

Power-off from python?

I'm trying to implement what is essentially a battery protection circuit in code. I want the ESP device to periodically read its VCC level, and if it is below a certain threshold, shoot off an email then switch itself off. While I'm aware that deepsleep could work here, it would even nicer to go int...

Re: uPyLoader - simple file transfer and communication

Hey @BetaRavener - nice to see someone else working in this space! I've been working on a fork of mu ( https://github.com/eduvik/mu/tree/feature/multi-board ) to support ESP8266 which has quite a bit of overlap with your project (all done in Python, PyQT5, REPL, file transfers). Perhaps we should ex...
