General discussions and questions abound development of code with MicroPython that is not hardware specific.
Target audience: MicroPython Users.

@kevinkk525 - I was just going to send you a direct message to see how hard it would be to use your project to play with homeassistant. I have homeassistant running on my mac. I have a pyboard. Will your esp8266 code run on the pyboard? interfacing is a main focus of homeassistant. The mqtt interface would work for me. I haven't gotten to your project yet. But I already have it on my todo list.

I found this to be very interesting.

- use WSL, build hower you want (probably the least qualified as 'build on windows' given what WSL is)
The least qualified would be to install VMware or similar, create a Linux VM and build inside of that. But it does work great.

@safetyfactorman the project should run on a pyboard without any problems. Some hardware specific modules however might not work correctly because I don't have any pyboard and therefore only wrote those modules with the esp8266 and esp32 in mind. But generally I tried to be as generic in every module as possible.
The framework itself is not platform dependent at all and works fine even on the unix port.
