I just saw this announcement for the Raspberry Pi Zero W:
$10, and has the same radio hardware as the Pi 3 (so WiFi and Bluetooth 4). It should be perfect as a device to run EspruinoHub on.
Or dare I say it, run espruino on it...
A Linux build with wifi and Bluetooth....
Well, if you're up for writing a Linux version of the Bluetooth API ;)
But yes, with the WiringPi Espruino build it's actually pretty snappy.
Perhaps - @JumJum and I will be looking at the Bluetooth on the esp32, the supplied libraries use bluedroid - I think this might be a higher level than the hardware driver?
I think on the pi they use bluez- and from what I have read there is no Bluetooth LE support yet.
There is Bluetooth LE on Linux - but it's still not that stable and only works on new versions of Bluez. As far as I can tell it may be using DBUS to Bluez to do what needs doing... I don't think that's going to end up being portable to ESP32 :(
It'd be nice to be able to make jswrap_bluetooth multiplatform though. I've tried a little, but there's still quite a lot of platform-specific stuff in there.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
