The Melbourne MicroPython Meetup blog

Post by mattyt » Tue Jul 10, 2018 10:08 am

Hi folks,

We have a fairly active MicroPython community here in Melbourne, Australia - no doubt aided by Damien George and Nick Moore calling Melbourne home. There are a few of us that regularly give short talks at our monthly MicroPython Meetup and it recently dawned on us that we're collecting some useful material but not capturing it...

So the Melbourne MicroPython Meetup blog was born!

I'll post whatever I can after each meetup. Normally that would include links or slides or even videos - like in the June meetup where Damien was recorded talking about how to Wrap a C module in MicroPython.

Hopefully it will be of use to the wider community!

Cheers,
Matt

That's great.

It is what I am trying to learn atm. A little hard to see everything that is going on but it is still a great tool to help out with learn this stuff.

The more people that understand this the more contributors Micro-Python will have :)

Glad you could make use of it. :)

We could probably do with an actual tutorial about how to create a wrapped C modules. I'll put it on my todo list but I'm pretty saturated at the moment; unlikely to get to it until late in the year. If anyone else could put it together I'd be happy to review or help out...

I did a start on that some time ago here: https://micropython-dev-docs.readthedocs.io/
It hasn't been finished or updated in years, though. But it's a start.

@deshipu

Thanks that should have enough in it for me to learn what is needed :)

It looks mostly correct @deshipu. The only point that jumped out was the directories have changed a little (specifically: ports are now in ports). I raised a quick PR.

And although perhaps not finished, it's a valuable resource! As time allows I'll be sure to update it rather than create my own.

Have you guys seen this PR? "Implement a module system for external C modules".

I hadn't - and it looks like a neat addition. Thanks @pythoncoder!
