Picoweb: running on official MicroPython

Post by pythoncoder » Thu May 16, 2019 3:58 pm

Picoweb is an excellent minimal web application framework for MicroPython written by Paul Sokolovsky. The documentation for this assumes that it will be run under the author's own Pycopy fork of MicroPython.

There are a number of reasons why users might want to run Picoweb under the official version of MicroPython, not least because firmware binaries are available for a variety of platforms.

In my testing the current version of Picoweb runs fine under official MicroPython: I have tested on Pyboard D, ESP32 and ESP8266. A number of users have experienced difficulties probably owing to dependency issues.

I have posted instructions in this repo as to how to run it using the official firmware. Dependencies are met from official micropython-lib. Installation on Pyboard D or ESP32 can be via a single rshell command.
