Re: MicroWebSrv2, new asynchronous Web server for MicroPython (+Routes +WebSockets +Template engine).

Hiya jczic, Just a quick note to say that I shared the MicroWebSrv2 announcement at the last Melbourne MicroPython Meetup (I haven't yet added a blog post for that meetup but I will!) and to the recent Adafruit Python on Hardware Newsletter . We've used it briefly at work for an internal tool and it...

Re: littlefs - advantages & disadvantages

The littlefs Github, especially the Design page, is full of really useful information. In short, it's a filesystem designed for an embedded environment so it's resilient to power failure, provides wear leveling and uses RAM judiciously.

Re: [PIC32M]MicroPython port to the PIC32M

Nice work!

I'd like to give this a try; is there a dev board you could recommend that uses this micro?

Re: How do I flash the python program so that it works like arduino

Mu was originally written for students using the micro:bit (it's another MicroPython board). You need to change the mode to ESP8266 MicroPython by clicking the mode button in the top left corner. Note that the alpha release of Mu is required for ESP8266/ESP32 support. It's available as a pre-built ...

Re: OLED capabilities

That display uses the SSD1306 display chip and, as Peter mentioned, has good support in MicroPython.

Re: micropython

It'll depend on the specific chip. All of the units with 64KB+ of RAM should be able to happily run MicroPython.

Re: compiling C modules into loadable shared objects

I am wondering if it is possible to build into the .mpy file something that identifies whether it has port/arch pacific code. Then if an mpy file is called from an in correct port it can through an error. I believe that's possible - and I agree it should be done - but it shouldn't get to that point...

Re: compiling C modules into loadable shared objects

Yes - this feature is being actively worked on. Damien actually gave a demo of this last week at the Melbourne MicroPython Meetup (an updated version of the video linked earlier in this thread). I don't think the video is online yet though. It's much nicer to use now than those earlier demos. I was...
