Re: Newb Teacher Needs Help

AMPY is good. Rshell https://github.com/dhylands/rshell is developed by one of our own, and in my opinion is better! ;) Just a short word of encouragement, I did not know one word of any computer language 12 months ago. I started learning Python from scratch and then came across Micropython. I am re...

Re: ESP32 and LoRa

It looks like someone implemented or imported a driver for the sx1276 LoRa module in a fork of PyCom's Micropython? All written in C of course. https://github.com/aizukanne/ESP32-micropython-lora/tree/master/esp32/lora Also I am seeing what looks like some LoRaWAN-related code in the PyCom reposito...

Re: ESP32 and LoRa

I wonder if I can drag this thread back to the original question.

Has anyone actually connected using LoRaWAN (to The Things Network most probably) using Micropython-programmed:
-RAK811?
-Heltec board?
-hand-made RFM95W connected to a ESP32?

What libraries did you use? any problems along the way?

Re: RFM95W lorawan stack ?

thanks for the links @on4aa, I will try and dive into aizukanne's fork of Pycom. But as a beginner, I really don't have the expertise to take, understand and use a module in this early stage of development. It seems I may be stuck using Arduino for a while, or perhaps stick with my trusty LoPy inste...

Re: SSD1306 I2C

sorry @pythoncoder, I forgot I wrote some notes at the top of the SSD1306.py module to remind me why I used an older version! So that is what threw the line numbering (poor coding mistake!) :oops: I really don't know how you put up with such poor mistakes! Thanks. Now with the OLED object correctly ...

Re: SSD1306 I2C

I am in a very similar situation with probably the same generic board from China; Heltec. IMG_20171230_51879.jpg The OLED definetly works as it had a test program running on initial boot, before I flashed the Micropython. I have used the previous version of the SSD1306.py module as recommended by @p...

Re: On analog pin change?

I would like to ask a related question to the forum, before I jump in and try and understand the terrifying world of digital Schmitt triggers....! The use case is a bicycle traffic counter. A 2m long 5mm hollow rubber tube is connected to a MPX5010 differential air pressure sensor. This sensor is co...

RFM95W lorawan stack ?

Hi All, I have put together a RFM95W shield for WEMOS D1 mini. https://github.com/TheNitek/WeMos-Lora The use case is a remote sensor periodically sending a very small amount of information. A low power wide area network protocol like LoRaWAN ticks the right boxes. I have been able to run the set up...
