Re: SPWF04S WiFi Module with micropython

Got one board today. I'm planning to check it out - how and if it works. Does it even have any advantages over ESP32?

Micropython odd exceptions behaviour

I tried to run the "play wav file" example from http://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/pyboard/pyboard/tutorial/amp_skin.html - but it didn't worked. Exception was that wave.open did not exist - while the function is in that file. After some debugging I used from wave import * To find that "_collecti...

Re: Chibi:bit

On Pycon PL 2016 it was told that the design will be open sourced/released soon so that clones and alike boards could be made. That could make things more interesting.

Problem with LCD over UART after firmware update

I was using a LCD display with an UART interface some time ago. Few days ago I've updated the firmware to latest and I've notices that the UART doesn't have .send() method any more, only .write() I had a code like: x.send(chr(1)+"some text"+chr(0xFF)) now with write I can't make it to work - LCD doe...

Re: ESP-Board Variations - Availability and MicroPython Support

I have two Chinese ones, one is NodeMCU and the second one is some ESP starter board with battery power supply. Those and many more are on dx.com, banggod.com and local shops that import such electronics.

Re: Raspberry Pi Zero

If you use such chip you would want to use USB devices, a display and more. MicroPython can't do that, but Python on Linux can. Also Raspberry Pi Foundation isn't interested in profit or commercial devices, and also Broadcom is hard to talk to (Hardkernel Broadcom boards where hard to make ;)) ESP82...

Connecting to MicroPython REPL on ESP8266

I'm following Adafruit ESP8266 tutorial and I've managed to load the firmware, but now, when I connect ESP8266 to USB/UART I can't connect to REPL in any way. The connection seems to hang. Does some other pins must be connected somewhere (I'm using the small Chinese board)?

Re: Micropython on Raspberry Pi2?

With an addon board you can have a microcontroller that Raspberry can communicate with (UART, USB or what else) where Pi is master and the addon can work without Pi. For both to work independent you can connect them (like micropython board and Pi) via some way (wifi, bluetooth, ethernet, UART etc.) ...

Re: WeIO

I pledged one board. The idea behind this one is the easy to write and use web based UI to controll the GPIO. Things like Raspberry Pi don't have it out of the box/by default, while microcontroller boards don't run full stack of web server with IDE and frontend with web sockets.

Re: Ported to esp8266!?

There is also a olimex board: http://olimex.wordpress.com/2014/11/28/ ... -in-stock/ that has all the gpio available.
