Re: Docker image

Great effort. Could you explain why I should use Docker though, instead of just installing the tool-chain once say on my linux machine?

Re: "NameError: name not defined" with micropython on esp-01

That firmware is from last year and doesn't include any of the huge work that has been done since, especially the kickstarter stuff. I would strongly suggest to visit the ESP8266 section of this forum and see how to compile your own firmware, and use that. Having said that, "help()" is not implemen...

"NameError: name not defined" with micropython on esp-01

Hello all, I just started using micropython. I used the pre-compiled firmware from Adafruit (available here: https://learn.adafruit.com/building-and-running-micropython-on-the-esp8266/build-firmware ) and flashed it onto a ESP-01 board using ESP8266Flasher.exe for Windows. This worked fine. I use Co...

Re: Permanent place for the latest pre-compiled esp8266 micropython

The terms of the ESP8266 Kickstarter campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/214379695/micropython-on-the-esp8266-beautifully-easy-iot were that precompiled binaries would only be available to certain backers for an initial period. hmm ok. I don't know much about terms like these. But could a...

Thanks. I see that they have quite a few boards supported there, but no esp8266. Is there no particular interest in the micropython community for esp8266?

Permanent place for the latest pre-compiled esp8266 micropython

Hello,
I want to try out micropython on my esp8266 module. I found a pre-compiled firmware from Adafruit, which is from mid-2015. I was wondering if there's a permanent place where someone hosts the latest (stable) pre-compiled micropython firmware for esp8266?

Thanks.
