Re: Playing audio files on the micro:bit

I think that you can connect an SD card over SPI to the microbit. Not sure if it's possible to mount it as a filesystem, but in the worst case you can simply read raw blocks of data from it. An SPI flash or EEPROM chip would work too.

Re: My newbit board

That looks great. I was thinking about following the reference design myself, but first I'm waiting for the nrf51822 dev board to try flashing MicroPython on it. Did you have any problems with it?

Re: help adding string module to mu or any other ide

Can't you just implement that function in Python yourself?

Re: Urequests Adafruit.io

That means that Adafruit replied with a response that normally tells the browser to visit some other address -- a redirect. And urequests doesn't support that, so you get an exception. If it works for you, you can just catch that exception with a try-except block and ignore it, just make sure to che...

Servo Shield

You might be aware that one of my hobbies is building walking robots. Those use a lot of servos, and I need a convenient way to control them all. That's why I experimented for the last couple of years with different approaches to a servo controller board. My latest project is a servo shield for the ...

You can always write a compiler from a C-like syntax to Forth-like bytecode. That's actually what Python does.

You can also take a look at LUA (nodemcu) and JavaScript (espruino) -- they are implemented for similar platforms to those on which MicroPython works, and might fit your use case better. And of course there is always that Forth ;-).

Re: How do I make different kinds of web - request?

Perhaps you can examine the firmware's source and see for yourself. My guess would be that they are doing a so-called "tcp ping".
