rshell Wireless port?

Post by MrR^2 » Fri Aug 02, 2019 4:06 pm

Hello all, thank you to the entire team for developing MicroPython. I just recieved my TinyPico from the campagin :D. It is an incredible little board. I got rshell up and running played around with making the LED "breathe," added wifi, configured the web REPL, and am now ready to get started playing for reals. I am new to the esp32, but have a pyboard as well. These boards are amazing.

Anyway, I am wondering if there is a way to use rshell wirelessly with the esp32, and if so, how would I go about doing so? Would I have to add telnet support? I would love to be able to work in VScode exclusively if possible.

Thanks again. I am amazed with the capabilities of these little beasts.

P.S. A shout out to the Tiny Pico team. The hardware is great, but the tutorials are amazing as well. If anyone needs help, check them out.

Currently, the only wireless connection supported by rshell is via telnet. This was created for the WiPy.

You would have to add WebREPL support. I’m not familiar with rshell internals, but I assume if it already supports two different transports, adding a third one shouldn’t be that hard. However, you may run into the problem that the current WebREPL protocol is not 8-bit clean, as I did here. If you have any good ideas about fixing that, that would be welcome. I have some, but have not gotten around to implementing them or starting a discussion about it.
