Re: Target audience for MicroPython?

@safetyfactorman the project should run on a pyboard without any problems. Some hardware specific modules however might not work correctly because I don't have any pyboard and therefore only wrote those modules with the esp8266 and esp32 in mind. But generally I tried to be as generic in every modul...

Re: How to run an mqtt-repl?

Yes that part is "fixed" in the new uasyncio version from Damien. Events won't need to "poll" and will only be woken up when the Event is set. But in most applications this doesn't make much difference in power consumption as uasyncio doesn't integrate any sleeping/idle states anyway (except for one...

Re: How to run an mqtt-repl?

BTW, looking at the synchronization primitives in https://github.com/peterhinch/micropython-async/blob/master/asyn.py I was struck by the fact that they all end up busy waiting, i.e. calling await asyncio.sleep_ms(<some small number>) in a loop :-(. Is that going to be fixed with Paul's new uasynci...

Re: Target audience for MicroPython?

Perhaps homeassistant is another. Inegrating with homeassistant requires a big framework and would basically be a different big project one has to maintain. That is unlikely to happen and would only serve a small group of people. However, if someone needs homeassistant integration, I wrote a framew...

Re: I2C changes to get the HTU21D working.

There are actually quite a few HTU21D libraries and they work fine with ESP8266.
This is the one I use on my esp8266: https://github.com/kevinkk525/htu21d-esp8266


There's also one from Peter Hinch that works slightly different: https://github.com/peterhinch/micropyth ... ter/htu21d

Re: search for an inexpensive device to detect housebreaking

And if you are very paranoid, you'd want to avoid using anything relying on wireless signals as those could be jammed, making your automations not triggering, except for those that run on the same controller.

Re: Help wanted for yaota8266 project...

Awesome! Did it also update the firmware correctly now? That would be a huge step forward for the esp8266

Re: hackable consumer electronic products with microppython ?!?

The watch looks very interesting!
Looks like a very nice hackable micropython gadget. I wonder how long the battery will last though.. 80mAh doesn't allow a lot of WLAN time on the esp32.
