Re: Status of MicroPython ESP8266 project

I hope you heal up fast ! As a backer, I'm in complete agreement to ditch the video tutorial commitment. I'm convinced that your time is most valuable to develop the core features of micropython. The work you and Damien have done is remarkable. I really think it's a game changer for getting people s...

Re: Out of memory due to heap fragmentation?

one minor suggestion is to dynamically concatenate strings in the loop with .format rather than "+". You garbage collect at the end of the loop so it's doubtful this will help, if at all...described here:

Re: DS3231 uRTC set / read problems

A small contribution to help find root cause .... I see normal rtc operation with a Feather esp8266 and the micropython 1.8.6 release. I'm using the same urtc library. Perhaps try with this micropython release? here is the REPL trace: MicroPython v1.8.6-7-gefd0927 on 2016-11-10; ESP module with ESP8...

Re: LCD 1602 - Library

Most Excellent ! Many thanks @dhylands, @mcauser, and @ernitron. :D I've wanted to get these displays working with esp/uP for some time now. I put a level shifter in the mix as it's likely the i2c lines are pulled to 5V on the LCD backpack which might put the ESP at risk. Not sure that is really nee...

Re: How-to: Using MQTT with Adafruit.IO and Thingspeak

I downloaded and installed the binary version you are using and tried it. For some reason I can't reproduce the issue that you see. It looks OK on my Feather Huzzah both from the REPL and WebREPL WebREPL daemon started on ws://192.168.4.1:8266 WebREPL daemon started on ws://0.0.0.0:8266 Started webr...

Re: How-to: Using MQTT with Adafruit.IO and Thingspeak

One thought -- is your ESP running a micropython binary release that includes the MQTT library?

I have used MQTT with two binaries, where the MQTT library is built-in:
esp8266-20160909-v1.8.4.bin
esp8266-20161110-v1.8.6.bin

How-to: Using MQTT with Adafruit.IO and Thingspeak

I've been learning how to use MQTT with two free hobbyist cloud data services. The MQTT protocol is supported in a built-in library in the Micropython binaries -- this protocol can be used send data from your ESP8266, over WIFI, to a free cloud database. For example, your ESP board could read an I2C...
