Re: Other new Python implementations

The comments on Pyston announcement seem more negative than positive. People complaining that it's Python 2.7 and not Python 3; people saying that it's too difficult and been tried before; people saying they should use a different (and more easily optimised) laguage.

Re: testing pyboard DAC

Okay, I tested using both DACs at the same time, using write_timed, and it works! The limitation is that they must run at the same frequency. For example, doing: from pyb import DAC dac1 = DAC(1) dac2 = DAC(2) buf1 = bytearray(128 + x for x in range(10)) buf2 = bytearray(128 - x for x in range(20)) ...

Re: testing pyboard DAC

Thanks for the bug report. I have now fixed the DAC(2) problem (it was linking to the DMA incorrectly). I also fixed the documentation regarding casting to an int to store into the bytearray buffer. Re the dual-modulated-triangle output: it could be that you are doing write_timed and triangle at the...

Re: OS X, board not appearing as Mass Storage Device

What version of OS X are you running? If you try to enter DFU mode, that will tell us if the USB connector is broken or working. To do this you need to connect the DFU hole (labelled P1/DFU on the back of the pyboard, in the bottom right corner looking from the back) with the 3V3 hole that is next t...

Re: When can we order Micro Python boards?

We are working very hard to get the boards out there into the wild. The first batch of boards have been manufactured (3000 of them), and are currently being programmed and tested. They will then be sent first to the Kickstarter backers. The remaining boards will be for sale on the website, at http:/...

Re: MicroPython announced on python-list?

I mentioned Django simply because it's got a lot of existing users, and if uPy can help them run their websites a bit faster with less memory, that would be a good place to start promoting uPy to the wider audience. if you'd prefer 3rd parties not make any noise about uPy before Kickstarter delivery...

Re: MicroPython announced on python-list?

If Micro Python could run Django, even in some heavily stripped down form, then that would get people's attention. Imagine nginx + uPy :)

Thanks to pfalcon, Micro Python can already act as a simple web server or client. With generator support, it can almost start to be a real server.

Re: MIPS port?

There are 2 ports that I will be doing in the coming months. One is a Cortex, so essentially just (!) porting the peripherals. The other is the dsPIC33. I don't know the details of the dsPIC port, nor its open source nature (or lack thereof). But I'll try to get it MIT licensed and part of the micro...

Re: MicroPython announced on python-list?

Before we start pushing Micro Python further there are 2 basic hurdles that I want to clear: 1) deliver fully on the Kickstarter, 2) make uPy run a decent amount of existing Python code. The former is easy to measure when done, the latter, not. I was in contact briefly with Guido van Rossum months a...
