Have you ever tried to build micropython on windows? Impossible.
I find this funny because I do it all the time. No not natively, but with a VM running the perfect environment for building my firmware.

Re: urandom.randint() replacement?

Not sure where I found it... :?

Code: Select all

import urandom

def randint(min, max):
    span = max - min + 1
    div = 0x3fffffff // span
    offset = urandom.getrandbits(30) // div
    val = min + offset
    return val

Portable WiFi LED Matrix Marquee

Just wanted to share my latest MicroPython project...

https://github.com/joewez/WifiMarquee

Re: Build Issue

Sounds like you are doing everything correctly... I'm not sure why adding your modules causes the build to throw an error.

When you...

Code: Select all

make clean
it deletes the build sub-directory, so messing around in there probably won't help.

And yes, the

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)

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 ...
