Re: RTOS Integration

I am not a GIT addict, so may need some input here. I'm no expert either, but the internet is full of tutorials (githubs own tutorials are IMO very newbie friendly). Is your code somewhere I can see it ? I also had issues with the STM library, there are conflicts due to the fact that MP is running ...

Re: RTOS Integration

I am starting on integrating the ChibiOS RTOS with MP. I would like to get some feedback on what would be more beneficial: MP as a library or ChibiOS as a library. Either modules can be compiled as a static library. Woohoo! I was sorta trying to do something like this early in the summer (pestered ...

Re: Wanted: Porting guide / developer guide

Dhyland was/is helpfull and I appreciate you too. Paradoxically, writing docs is gazillion times more laborious. I don't think it's even paradoxically. I at the process of my initial studying wrote whole 3 paragraphs: https://github.com/micropython/micropython/wiki/Internals . Please be fair: have y...

Re: Driving more than 4 servos

I just realized I wasn't thinking properly when I first read your message. Short version: as such most likely not, however one could try using 595s over SPI (choose some high-speed version and you can run the SPI clock at several MHz) and timer trickery to send out new data every time a pulse needs ...

IRC Channel

TLDR: On Freenode #micropython use http://webchat.freenode.net/?randomnick=1&channels=%23micropython&uio=d4 if you don't have a preferred way to do it yet. Since some might have missed @dhylands in thread http://forum.micropython.org/viewtopic.php?p=617#p617 I decided to make a separate announcement...

Re: Wanted: Porting guide / developer guide

is there something like a web-based no-signup client or so http://webchat.freenode.net/?randomnick=1&channels=%23micropython&uio=d4 seems to work. IRCCloud was mentioned, I use it as well: It keeps persistent connections for you so you get notifications when you log back in if someone pinged you wh...

Re: Wanted: Porting guide / developer guide

Thanks. Any rules of thumb on how much memory one should give to uPy for the gc allocator ? Chibi has this funky "core" allocator that the heap and other allocators can ask for more memory from (I'm not quite sure how the handle discontinuous regions, I just skimmed over the code quickly), anyway it...

Wanted: Porting guide / developer guide

Hi there, I've been looking around github pages and the wiki (and tried to search the forum) but... It would be very nice to have some sort of developer guide that would explain the basics of how this beast works and how to for example implement a module in C and expose functions/data. Reading the s...

Re: Transmit data from file via I2C

Caveat emptor: I have not tried this or even dug into documentation/code to check but in theory: If the I2C interface takes anything that looks like a buffer you could make your own buffer class that works as a generator/iterable and buffers X bytes from the SD while returning a byte for each iterat...

Re: Multitasking?

I surely started looking into Lua first, but failed to acquire Helsinki syndrome for it, with all its mess like array indexes starting from arbitrary numbers, lack of clear type separation, and funky syntax at places. Heh, I had tons of WTF!?! Why do it like this ? Just to be different ?? And what ...
