Re: uasyncio - asyncio-like cooperative multitasking framework for uPy

A major evolutionary step for uasyncio - a long-standing bug with cancellation of uasyncio.sleep() call was fixed. That bug didn't allow to write reliable networking applications (with timeouts, etc.), and rendered uasyncio practically useless for applications outside its initial domain (which was a...

Re: Micropython for UEFI Shell

Good news. Previously, they ported CPython to it, and of course, MicroPython is a much better choice.

Re: Compression for uzlib

I'm wondering why uzlib module doesn't support compression?
Obvious reason would be that nobody did that?

And doing that properly would require elaborating the API of the underlying C library (also called uzlib).

Re: namedtuple difference with CPython

3) leave it as-is to preserve MP code size and RAM consumption. Request the users find a workaround. Please leave it be. And not just namedtuple, but other parts of Micro Python as micro too. If you need CPython bloat, please use CPython. If you can't use CPython, please appreciate minimality and e...

"venv" module for micropython-lib

Creating standalone independent environments with MicroPython is very easy, because MICROPYPATH environment variable fully overrides module search path (unlike CPython, where it just augments builtin paths). So, you just need to set it, and voila! But for consistency of workflow with CPythoin I've j...

Re: ANN: micropython-dev - MicroPython variant for development/research (unix port)

Another example of a feature implemented in micropython-dev: ability to override __import__() builtin, i.e. module import mechanism. This allows for great extensibility of language environment. For example, it's possible to implement automatic precompilation of .py files into bytecode files, .mpy. I...
