Re: MicroPython vs Ubuntu Core

Thanks for the reply.

I agree the pip solution isn't the worst thing ever.

I will be trying out a bare metal build on the cm3+ and post an update on how it worked out.

MicroPython vs Ubuntu Core

I have a Raspberry Pi CM3+. I will be running considering my OS options. I could flash MicroPython and run the required MicroPython modules. Or, I could run Ubuntu Core and run a python application. Some observations so far: 1. The MicroPython flash would come with packages for the GPIO, UART etc. b...

Re: Large flash size on STM32 port for PyBoard 1.1

I understand better what you mean by the minimal libraries used for stm32. And yes, there is a lot of duplication that I do not need. I suppose, I could add the additional functionality manually to the upy source code. Would that be a good idea ? If so, where could I potentially find the source code...

Re: Large flash size on STM32 port for PyBoard 1.1

Previously, I had reallocated more space for flash from the file system as you mentioned but now the size is just too big. Possibly due to the duplication.

Re: Large flash size on STM32 port for PyBoard 1.1

I understand. Basically, I've only added the libraries that helped me remove linker errors when I compiled the user module into the firmware. I'd have to investigate more thoroughly to determine what would've been duplicated. About the flash, I interpreted it as flexible and since I am flashing to a...

Re: Large flash size on STM32 port for PyBoard 1.1

I have a C++ user module that uses a libstdc++, libm etc. and when I add the module, the entire flash just becomes super large.

I'll double check if I'm doing anything off, just in case

Large flash size on STM32 port for PyBoard 1.1

I added a bunch of user modules and ended up with a large build package. Resulted in the following error: arm-none-eabi-ld: region `FLASH_TEXT' overflowed by 523020 bytes Fix: by allocating more space for FLASH_TEXT in the linker script for STM32F405 (<>/micropython/ports/stm32/boards/stm32f405.ld) ...

Re: Error trying to build a C++ module that uses the standard c++ library

Building everything with -mfloat-abi=softfp seems to have worked

Error trying to build a C++ module that uses the standard c++ library

Hello, I am trying to add a user module written in C++ on the stm32 port. I have compiled the shared library with appropriate flags and written part of my python wrapper. The module micropython.mk looks like this: EXAMPLE_MOD_DIR := $(USERMOD_DIR) SRC_USERMOD += $(EXAMPLE_MOD_DIR)/test.c LDFLAGS_USE...
