Hi there,

Recently I have reported that I am getting some problems with ampy when I pushing files to the esp board.

Today I got the answer on GitHub, from Adafruit, that they no longer want to maintain the ampy project and it can be forked if somebody wants to contine development.

Please read whole discuasion https://github.com/adafruit/ampy/issues ... -456183958

Thanks

Many alternatives, like Dave Hylands rshell. https://github.com/dhylands/rshell
Any quite a few IDE like environments.

I used to have a lot of intermittent problems using ampy with my esp8266s.
Fixed by adding this line to my ~/.bash_profile:

Code: Select all

export AMPY_DELAY=0.5
Also, added this to save typing --port each time:

Code: Select all

export AMPY_PORT=/dev/tty.wchusbserial1420
And because my MacBook has multiple usb ports, I added aliases to switch the environment variable:

Code: Select all

alias ampy1='export AMPY_PORT=/dev/tty.wchusbserial1410'
alias ampy2='export AMPY_PORT=/dev/tty.wchusbserial1420'
alias ampy32='export AMPY_PORT=/dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART'
My esp32 always shows up as /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART, regardless of which usb port I use.

I have taken over the development of Ampy for the meantime. That issue you mentioned has been re-opened.

Glad you could take over development of Ampy, devxpy - thanks! It's a useful tool.

Hi,
I'd like to mention that EsPy from https://github.com/jungervin/EsPy is a quite nice all-in-one for Win users and ESP8266 uPy
I like the embedded esptool and filemanager.

For beginners new Thonny release from https://thonny.org/ supports script upload to ESP as well.

so no need for command line typing ;) :D

Best,
Deedee

uPycraft - yes I know it. On the basis of it, I try to make a similar alternative. And mark it in my blog. If possible, I will share my work if you need it.
