[ANN] Packaging and deployment docs

Post by pfalcon » Fri Dec 15, 2017 9:58 am

MicroPython manual now contains a chapter on creation, installation, and deployment of packages (including as the frozen bytecode): http://docs.micropython.org/en/latest/u ... kages.html . It summarized experience and the best practices when dealing with these topics.

The chapter is work in progress and definitely needs further elaboration. But it already collects enough material which previously was spread over READMEs for particular ports, sample projects, github tickets, and forum posts.

Thanks,
Really good and helpful doc. I've learnt that I have upip in my ESP8266 MicroPython and I can use it directly from the repl. I didn't know.
Amazing :o
The chapter about frozen modules also makes things clearer.
I'm still very impressed of how much computing power, performance, billions of man-hours of open-source software you can have in a 2 or 3€ device. A so long way since my ZX81.

I've also started programming with ZX-81 Sinclair computers. Microcontrollers running MicroPython is a "back to the future" experience for me 8-)
