Re: This forum's behaviour has changed for the worse.

You might like to consider a more modern forum software like Discourses. I am running one for a few weeks now and I am impressed by it‘s features. Especially the spam prevention and trust mechanics plus more hierarchical than linear threads are nice imho. Anyways, thanks for thee work on so many fro...

Re: [STM32F103] - Porting MicroPython to the "BluePill" board

This really is an interesting effort. I also have been looking for the support of lower flash sized STM32 MCUs. Even with 64k flash an experienced user can do what he wants Micropython to do. Of course this is not a beginners platform! These days many are interested in IoT MCUs only. But the stabili...

Re: github repository changes

I think Damien is committing in first changes to restructure the repository. The reason seems to be the upcoming merge of the ESP32 fork back into the main repository.

Re: Micropython-Unix

Did you respect the external dependencies as noted in the README? The packages libffi and libffi-dev seem to be missing.

Re: Credentials sticking around?

Please be aware that the ESP8266 does not only remember the last WiFi credentials, but also the last 5 or was it 6?). They are stored in a static section of flash memory. One does need to write these credentials using the connect(...) method at least those few times to erase them from flash. The bes...

Re: Questions regarding SD card

How about to get "physical" and move the SD card into a reader on your PC? Ather ways are: Reboot into the USB+CDC mode where one can access the SD-card from the PC as well. Pay attention to not change files on both "ends" of the USB cable! Reading (not deleting) on the PC only should be save. The d...

Re: Waking esp8266 via Pin (wemos D1)

Yes it is supported. You must use the RST (reset) pin for this. When using RTC based wakeboard it is connected to the GPIO pin 16, which yields the reset from the internal RTC.
Check the datasheet for details and how to addept this should be straight forward.

Re: Library to deep sleep for days for esp8266

This Espressif link claims 10μA. Is this not achievable? Sure it is, but i have not seen that many boards with nearly down to no power draining components. The Wemos Mini might be different and at least hours of sleep time can negate the time of high power usage when the MCU us acitve and using WIFI.

Re: Library to deep sleep for days for esp8266

I do not think that it can be added there, micropython-lib ist the place to look for MicroPython implementations of existing CPython modules. Integrating your module would force other projects to use the GPL license even if they had wisely chosen a more liberal license (like the given example MIT li...
