Can the pyboard do OTA updates?

As the subject says. I didn't see anything in the official documentation.

Re: How do I list the RSSI (strength) of the Wi-Fi SSID I'm connected to?

That would be a clever workaround but I don't see anywhere that I can get the MAC of the router I associate with.

On my own personal router yes, on my customer's router no.

Re: Since uPython on the ESP doesn't verify SSL certificates

I'm sorry guys I'm rushed to get the product done. For my project going to a Pi has several other benefits so I'm doing that instead. For others who do still want to use the ESP and uPython, a suggestion: Wrap the C code (which does verify) in Python, extend it somehow. I thought I recalled reading ...

Re: Since uPython on the ESP doesn't verify SSL certificates

So without this uPython on the 8266 is a toy. I'm moving toward WiPy or Pi Zero W instead.

Re: How do I list the RSSI (strength) of the Wi-Fi SSID I'm connected to?

The down side of this method is when there are multiple APs with the same SSID such as xfinitywifi. I'm going to just choose the strongest one since that's the one most likely to be connected. Also this method is slow. I'll just grab the list once and refer back to it later since my device will be s...

Light sleep, Wi-Fi disabled, wake with interrupt

I'm thinking of using the ESP8266 on uPython without any Wi-Fi. Just as a power controller with extra GPIOs. How can I push an external button, wake the device from light sleep, and detect that it was that button which did the waking? Is it a Pin callback or?

Re: Since uPython on the ESP doesn't verify SSL certificates

Is SSL verified on the ESP32 port? I can't find documentation.

Since uPython on the ESP doesn't verify SSL certificates

I see that the ussl library does not verify SSL certificates . I need encryption but I don't strictly need SSL. What are my alternatives? My device does HTTP (or could do MQTT?) GETs or POSTs to a server to receive orders and send status updates. I need to be able to allow or deny access to my servi...

Re: GPIO16, deep sleep and pin interrupt

Any chance you can post a schematic of that? May be useful for me.
