Re: File Manager

I m also going to make it cross platform so it will work on posix systems as well. I am going to use Fuse for that end of things.

Re: File Manager

OK so I changed gears as to how I am developing this thing. First thing is I scrapped the GUI interface. instead I have now leveraged the Windows OS API to allow the ESP32 to be seen as a removable drive This is done using a kernel mode driver called Dokany. I had to write a Python binding to the Do...

Re: ESP32-targeted alternative to Ampy

HA! someone else that's has as many problems as I have with Ampy. I too also started developing a file manager for the ESP32. I have decided to make the device show up in as a removable drive in the OS. I have the file transfer code already written up and it works good. I am working on the OS integr...

File Manager

I have been working with MicroPython specifically with the ESP32 and I have not been able to locate an easy and reliable way of transferring files to the ESP32. I have been using Ampy and each time I do I end up losing some hair over it. It works < 10% of the time without any aggravation. There is n...

Re: Threading questions

OK I can see the argument for using asynchio vs threading. asynchio is better used when writing code that is going to be used by others and the original author does not know exactly how it is going to be used. This is not the case with my program. I am the one using it and so there for I am going to...

Re: Threading questions

Attached is a copy of the code I have written to handle the LED's. The number of LED's has changed because of my poor soldering skills :lol:, also because of space requirements with the additional wiring as I had to use some pretty decent size wire because of the 10 foot run and wanting to keep the ...

Re: Threading questions

The slow updates are because the LED's are slow. The neopixel library is for ws2812 and equivalent LED strips. each bit takes 1.25us to send. I have 288 pixels and 4 LED's per pixel (RGBW). so that 1152 LEDs, 8 bits per LED for a total of 9216 bits. and with a timing of 1.25us per bit that's 11520us...

Threading questions

I have a project where I am running multiple strips of LED's. I would have run a single strip except the strip takes about 4.5 seconds to refresh. This is not going to work for me. So what I did was cut the strip into 10 smaller strips. smaller number of pixels = faster refresh time. I can deal with...

Re: IR receiver/transmitter for ESP8266?

I know this is an older topic. I am trying to accomplish a similiar task. I do not want to decode the IR at all i want to be able to receive the IR and then send the RLC (raw timings) over the WiFi to a PC that will handle the decoding aspects. I also want to be able to receive RLC over the WiFi and...
