I guess, it should be relatively easy to port Espruino to these modules ...
By relatively, I mean most of the STMF4 part is already known while the wifi specific part is yet to be checked.
And, as I am biaised in favor of Espruino versus Micropython, I do strongly believe it has to be done! That's not to talk about a new kickstarter project with a board more 'in the stream' of rpiz addon boards (or phats as some call it).
Yes, I imagine that actually getting Espruino running (without the WiFi) would be pretty quick - then it's a matter of getting the WiFi itself working, which could be a bit problematic. I'm not sure how worthwhile it is though - the modules themselves aren't cheap at all: https://octopart.com/spwf04sa-stmicroelectronics-81012684
You could easily buy a standard STM32 and an ESP8266 for less money than the complete module...
However their inclusion of the MicroPython interpreter is really interesting! I wonder if it's something Damien's been involved in, or whether it's something ST has implemented on their own.
Nowadays, 15 € is expensive compared to esp32...
I was mainly thinking that if MicroPython runs on it, Espruino should too.
However it seems to be locked to an hex file for firmware + some MicroPython scripts embedded.
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.
