Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

Micropip may be found here . Nice! For some reason the MicroPython wiki is rather little-used. Some time ago I offered to remove the outdated content but Damien wasn't keen on the idea. It would be good if more library authors used it to promote their work. I'd be willing to work on the wiki if any...

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

I agree the documentation is good... for MicroPython. The documentation you find for any particular module though will depend on the developer. If we are talking about helping new users find and add functionality, they will not find a homogeneous experience each time.

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

You bring up a good point about frozen modules . I think we should focus on situations that do not require that modules be frozen into the firmware... and make that as painless as possible. upip is great for this, but I think there may be cases where it may not work... for instance, what about platf...

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

Once we've figured out a few more details we may reach out and ask for some help from you folks! That's great! What I think would be insightful, would be to take one or two of his previous Arduino-based project videos and re-implement them in MicroPython. Then we could compare and contrast the code...

Re: Micropython as Arduino killer

I just noticed the video and noticed the comments were breaking 1000! While I tend to not take too much value from YouTube commentators, I did find some glimmer of hope in those looking for a simpler solution than Arduino. Anyway, are there any other Arduino users that can share what advantages they...

Re: Windows development enviroment/IDE?

I've posted elsewhere in the forum about a tool I wrote myself based on Adafruit's ampy application. https://github.com/joewez/AmpyFileManager It's kind of personal tool, but you may find it useful. Unfortunately, the recent versions of ampy have been flaky, so if you do attempt to use it... be sure...

Re: uMail - A lightweight SMTP client for MicroPython

Hi!

I'm getting an

Code: Select all

   AssertionError: auth error 535
on line 73 of umail.py. My example is almost the same as yours.

Do I have to enable something in my gmail account to allow smtp access?

Thanks!

Re: Example, examples..never get enough

I definitely know what you mean! Seeing how other people do things is so helpful when you are getting started. In that regard you should definitely search github.com for projects based on MicroPython. I've been at it a while but came in knowing nothing about Python in general. I will offer my humble...
