Ok. Has the terminal program settings for flow control, which could be set to none?
b.t.w.: which terminal programndo you use? For convenience I use picocom. screen seemed overfeatured for my purpose.

I.... think I found a solution I can work with.

None of the different terminal programs I tried were working... but I just now installed the MicroPython plugin for PyCharm - and that works! I can access REPL and I can upload files through it.

But, when I start REPL I get a lot of garbage first before the prompt appears. I don't think that should happen?
It seems to work normal after that so I can ignore it I guess... but still would be nice to fix that :)

Code: Select all

Device path /dev/tty.Repleo-CH341-001314FD
Quit: Ctrl+] | Stop program: Ctrl+C | Reset: Ctrl+D
Type 'help()' (without the quotes) then press ENTER.

The garbage at the startup is normal. The ESP8266 boot ROM send it first messages at a baud rate of about 74800 baud.
