rshell connecting to Pycom boards using Pybytes firmware

This question relates to using Rshell tool with Pycom boards flashed with Pybytes firmware. I recently started using Pycom's Pybytes firmware on a Pycom devboard (LoPy) and unfortunately Rshell is no longer able to connect. ls /dev/tty* returns the correct port. However rshell --buffer-size=30 -a -p...

Re: MicroPython IDE

I think the lack of a strong IDE is a real barrier to entry to using Micropython (particularly for beginners). As a hacker-level maker (non commercial) I personally use Atom on linux Ubuntu to write code and manage small projects. I can also directly interface with the REPL using Pycom's PYMAKR Atom...

Re: Cant access REPL

OK @chromecat step by step: 1) when you installed the firmware using esptool.py what message was displayed in the Terminal? Did you erase_flash first before you write flash the firmware? What speed (baudrate) did you use? Try it at 115200. 2) How are you trying to access REPL? Using PUTTY on Windows...

Re: MicroPython AP spotted in the wild

Perhaps RailCorp are trialing some on-board sensor network options?
We can only dream.

unable to revert to main filesystem

I am running a uSD card shield on a esp8266 devboard I am able to mount the SD card using import machine, sdcard, os sd = sdcard.SDCard(machine.SPI(1), machine.Pin(15)) os.umount('/') vfs=os.VfsFat(sd) os.mount(vfs, '/sd') os.listdir() I can then open and append files in the /sd directory. However I...

Re: using Rshell with windows

Just a quick update to this thread. Particularly to help those who thought running a quick workshop would be a great way to introduce Micropython to others... Linux users installed and interacted well with Rshell Windows users managed to use MPFshell with the usual driver updates required I could no...

Re: LOLIND32

perhaps try the module documentation for the ESP8266, as there isn't really very much for the ESP32 right now.
There is close similarity between many of the ESP8266 and ESP32 micropython port modules.

using Rshell with windows

I am running a short Micropython intro workshop. The workshop gets attendees to use Rshell to interact with a wemos D1 mini (esp8266 port). There is a strong likelihood that people will show up at my next workshop with MS Windows installed on laptops so I thought I had better check Rshell works ok w...

Re: PMS5003 air quality sensor library

Thanks @kevinkk525, I will give your library a try.

Also available for others to consider, not using uasyncio, is Rob Blaggar's library

A great blog on developing and optimizing a PMS5003 set up (on Pycom WiPy board) is by Dominik along with his library.
