Opening USB serial REPL When Script Running

I have just notice a recent issue I have been having using ampy to access a Wemos D1 Mini. It seems that with the latest build, the behavior has changed such that when an ampy command is run and the device is "busy" running a script... the opening of the serial port fails. I believe that before, ope...

Re: I'm a little lost :/

You are looking at the WiPy documentation. You need to be looking at the ESP8266 docs. http://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/esp8266/

Guide Specifically for MicroPython on the ESP8266

I wanted to gauge the interest in a resource specifically dedicated to the ESP8266 running MicroPython. I have found a particular affinity for these cheap little chips and would like to see how far and how functional we can go with them using MicroPython. Sure the ESP32 port(s) are coming along nice...

Re: PyConAu Talk - any suggestions?

Are you going to present an example of using uasyncio? Do you have any ideas what you might do for that example? I have a couple of common scenarios that I think would be awesome to demonstrate, but you may already have something in mind. I just wanted to see if you were interested in any more input...

Re: Convert a image and show in OLED display

Hello, I was able to put two and two together to figure out what you may be looking for. 20180615_114602.jpg Based on what I have done for this project https://github.com/joewez/ESP-Widget I use a simple text file that has monochrome bitmap encoded in hex values. For example, the graphic you link mi...

Re: Differences between CH340 & CP210X Boards

@bitninja a little off topic, is it an old motorola phone turned into a pocket computer you are using as a terminal? No, it's actually a Raspberry Pi Zero W, LCD, USB Hub and battery stuffed into a 3D printed case... in the form factor of an iPhone 4. Then I use a cheap slide-out bluetooth keyboard...

Re: New Lolin D32 Pro with 4MB PSRAM

I suppose the spacing of the headers is the same as the older Wemos D1 Mini Pros... so that at least the shields should still work. Nice to see they are using the MicroPython pin numbering scheme now!

Re: vgkits-vanguard - Learner-oriented tools for ESP8266 micropython boards

Very nice! I'll have to give it a spin when I get some time. I'm glad someone has thought more about the educational benefits of a physical computing kit. I think there is a barrier to learning to program in that it's usually restricted to just doing stuff on the computer screen. Some learners may r...

Re: Running webserver and other code simultaneously

You can use frozen modules for the code that is stable and definitely required. Pre-compiled modules may be accomplishing the same thing... I have not used those yet. I just got comfortable building my own firmware and then added the modules I needed into the build. Second... garbage collect often.....

Re: PyConAu Talk - any suggestions?

There's been an IoT track at PyConAu for a couple of years now... That would be interesting to me... an IoT talk that had some practical examples of MicroPython being used for IoT devices. This would probably focus on the ESP boards but I think that's ok. By now, MQTT is pretty well represented on ...
