My LoPy board arrived

Post by bmarkus » Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:03 am

Just received my LoPy board. It would be good to have a dedicated subforum for LoPy talks.

2x for a LoPy section in this forum, like the one for WiPy.

Please, measure the free RAM after login (or reset) with :

Code: Select all

import micropython
micropython.mem_info()
or :

Code: Select all

import gc
gc.mem_free()
and share with us.

I think they could be added to the WiPy section? They are going to have a lot in common, probably.

It would be good to have a dedicated subforum for LoPy talks.
Pycon created dedicated forum on their site, so I don't think it would be friendly action to create a section here, unless there will be *really* many people who want to talk about LoPy on this forum and not on that. In the meantime, as pointed, WiPy forum should be the best place for related topics.

Funny. Is that out-of-the-package, or after firmware update as recommended? Try running following code:

Code: Select all

def foo():
    foo()
foo()


The most interesting is however what version of MicroPython it's based on - what header does it print after reset?

I would care about people not about enterprise "friendship" ) if people will want to go to Pycom forum - they will ) but yes... it is worth to create yet another section if there are many of such board users that create meaningful topics )

LoPy is the 1st MCU board with MicroPython & LoRa, has some thousands of buyers (Kickstarters backers). Many MicroPython users are owners of Pybord, WiPy, ESP8266, LoPy, etc, because all of these boards have strenghts for some use cases.

IMHO, it is nonsense to try to hide one of two great MicroPython 2016 announcements (ESP8266 with MicroPython & LoPy in January/February 2016) from the MicroPython community.

Because more MicroPython users using with more boards, better is for the MicroPython community (which is very small compared to Arduino, etc).

One option is to rename de WiPy section to "WiPy and LoPy", covering WiPy 1.0, WiPy 2.0 and LoPy. WiPy 2.0 and LoPy share many features.

Then you must have been sitting under the rock, because everyone on this forum knew about that yet in January/February: http://forum.micropython.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1350 .

However, if LoPy creators decided to create their own forum, it's their right, and owners of this forum hopefully won't try to proactively interfere with their desire to consolidate "their" users. This forum remains about all things MicroPython, and if practice shows that there's considerable share of LoPy, etc. users on this forum in 6-12 month, a dedicated section specifically for them will be explicitly designated.

but what would you fill separate LoPy section with? What tips'n'tricks, questions etc. would you write there? And how much? I think it's a good starting point - to start from "Others boards" and if there will be a lot of meaningful LoPy topics - then it is worth to create a separate section even if there are 2-3 active users. For me it's more about content (which could be found by Google btw), not about user count.
