Running a default python script

Post by hecker » Sun Mar 06, 2016 7:36 pm

I successfully compiled the current MicroPython firmware on a MacBook with the help of the tutorial by Adafruit ... d-firmware. Note: You although need to run the following code in the MicroPython git repo, as mentioned by syrekron:

Code: Select all

git submodule update --init
After flashing the ESP-01 everything worked as expected. My question is, if it is possible in the current state of MicroPython for ESP8266 to run a python script per default at startup without compiling it into the firmware (as described by the Adafruit tutorial).

No, at the moment you have to compile it. As soon as there is support for a filesystem, you should be able to upload it instead.
