How to develop embedded applications?

Post by bmarkus » Sat Aug 08, 2015 5:40 pm

Hi

lets have a uC board running MicroPython which can be connected via serial console only, no SD-card nor USB mass storage. How to add modules to the system stored in flash to make them available and run application after power on/reset automatically? I mean extending system onboard via the serial terminal, not adding them to the source, rebuild and refresh.

I wrote a tool called rshell https://github.com/dhylands/upy-shell/t ... ter/rshell which allows you to connect over a serial link to micropython and allows you to copy files to/from the internal file system or sdcard.

The way it was coded it really needs an error free serial link, so it has some issues working over a bluetooth serial link (the bluetooth chips don't guarantee error-free). But it works fine over usb-serial or hard-wired serial.
