Re: Raspberry Pi Port

Indeed ! One specific detail that would interest me tremendously, would be to see if the micropython "USB HID mode" would work as painlessly on a Pi Zero as it does on a pyboard... This is because I have recently spent *hours* implementing various popular tutorials, which claim to enable multifuncti...

Re: Touch GUI for the official Pyboard display

Indeed, that was a large part of the culture shock... I had bypassed that with my first Arduino experience by following tutorials (a dime a dozen, the hard part is finding the right one) and copy/pasting code that already did what I wanted... But it's harder to escape in the micropython world at thi...

Re: Touch GUI for the official Pyboard display

Torwag & Kamikaze : I'm sorry if my remark came across as too harsh, it was not the point. I'm fully aware that the additional costs are due in part to the power needed by a python interpreter (compared to compiled C code), in part to sustaining the project (which is good), and in part to small batc...

Re: Touch GUI for the official Pyboard display

Great, 16 buttons would be more than enough, thanks :-)

It's just too bad that micropython hardware is so expensive compared to the Arduino/Pi ecosystems...

Re: Touch GUI for the official Pyboard display

Hey, that looks fantastic !

How many buttons (keypad-style) do you think could fit in there, and still be usable (with nimble fingers :-) ) ?

BTW, the link to the documentation doesn't seem to work (yet ?)...

Thanks shaoziyang ! This is tempting, I'd like to give it a try :-)

Re: My new PYB Nano board is coming

Thanks for that answer ! Any idea if Python could handle both sides, or C should be used on the Arduino end ?... USB mcu side is arduino, it doesn't support python, only C code may use. Thought so, but thanks for the confirmation ! So it should be possible to have Python handle the data coming in f...

Re: My new PYB Nano board is coming

LinkIt smart 7688 is great, I have a LinkIt smart 7688, but I love micropython more. That board sounds interesting for the price, especially the Duo version which has two data-capable USB ports... Do you think it could be made to work as a USB Host and Device at the same time ? Like a keyboard rema...
