Re: Saving Space for Frozen Code

Thanks for that!

I will give a try when I get home.

Tell me, does this take space away from the integrated flash file system?

Saving Space for Frozen Code

I have been building the esp8266 version of MicroPython for some time now and have noticed some limitations of how much I can fit before it fails to build. I am at a point now where I have to choose between two important apps and was wondering if I can trim elsewhere to get them both to fit. Is ever...

Re: - do i need to have a pyBoard to start with MicroPython !?

Yes, the Wemos D1 Mini works great with MicroPython.

Code: Select all

from machine import Pin
import time

led = Pin(2, Pin.OUT)

while True:
    led.on()
    time.sleep_ms(500)
    led.off()
    time.sleep_ms(500)

Can't say that I agree with that. Sorry. But I do agree the situation is regrettable.

Re: Designing resilient IOT applications

Impressive! Thank you for an inspiring design! While you leave the actual message content up to the implementation, have you thought about formulating an additional layer to the protocol that standardizes common data exchange messages that occurs for IOT applications? I'm just thinking that another ...

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

Micropip may be found here . Nice! For some reason the MicroPython wiki is rather little-used. Some time ago I offered to remove the outdated content but Damien wasn't keen on the idea. It would be good if more library authors used it to promote their work. I'd be willing to work on the wiki if any...

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

I agree the documentation is good... for MicroPython. The documentation you find for any particular module though will depend on the developer. If we are talking about helping new users find and add functionality, they will not find a homogeneous experience each time.

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

You bring up a good point about frozen modules . I think we should focus on situations that do not require that modules be frozen into the firmware... and make that as painless as possible. upip is great for this, but I think there may be cases where it may not work... for instance, what about platf...

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

Once we've figured out a few more details we may reach out and ask for some help from you folks! That's great! What I think would be insightful, would be to take one or two of his previous Arduino-based project videos and re-implement them in MicroPython. Then we could compare and contrast the code...

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

I just noticed the video and noticed the comments were breaking 1000! While I tend to not take too much value from YouTube commentators, I did find some glimmer of hope in those looking for a simpler solution than Arduino. Anyway, are there any other Arduino users that can share what advantages they...
