Re: Programming ESP8266 on Chromebook in Nov 2019; with both Linux/android apps now accessible, is it easier?

Looks like the most recent update on my Chromebook to Chrome stable version 83 has finally enabled pass through of the serial ports to crostini. I have only tried it on my nodemcu esp32. Once you connect it, you get a popup asking if you want to pass to Linux. It then shows up as /dev/ttyUSB0 inside...

Re: Season of Docs : MicroPython

Let me first start by thanking both Matty and Jim on creating the Project Ideas documentation. I am in full agreement with the list of areas mentioned in the Ideas Summary Section. I think that list is in order of need and should be followed as much as possible. Once you guys have a more defined pla...

Re: ESP32 ADC voltage drop after some hours

I'm curious about this behavior. I have hooked up a precision voltage reference AD584 chip set to output 2.5 V. This is connected to one of the adc inputs of the ESP32 (set to 12 bit width and atten_11db). Taking adc data every 1 second which is published via MQTT (using the mqtt_as) to a broker. A ...

Re: Interfacing with industrial PLC and HMI

I have been using the Advantech ADAM-xxxx series of PLCs which use modbus. Most of the ones I have used are networked over wired Ethernet so can be accessed by any computer over the network. They provide Windows GUI and other software and also Linux drivers. But most can be used directly via Python ...

Re: Programming ESP8266 on Chromebook in Nov 2019; with both Linux/android apps now accessible, is it easier?

I too have been looking for a solution using a Chromebook using crostini/Linux. Unfortunately it is not possible as of right now as USB support for such serial devices is not present in chrome. Maybe it will change in the future.

For Arduino, there appears to be some sort of web app and ide.

Re: Web-Scraping (with BeautifulSoup4?) on ESP32

Not sure about bs4 but a quick Google search shows that there are available APIs for weather data, for example, openweathermap Haven't used them but using requests module they should return json that should be figurable with the micropython json module.
