EspruinoWifi connected / disconnected event

Posted on
  • Hi There
    I just received a few espruino.wifi boards. Nice work!

    I try to detect the connected or disconnected event without success. I did not get any of this two events. No connected event on connect and no disconnect event when i switch off my wifi AP.


    var wifi = require("EspruinoWiFi");
    var WIFI_NAME = "XYZ";
    var WIFI_OPTIONS = { password : "PW" };
    wifi.on('connected', function(data) {
        console.log("> connected "+data);
    wifi.on('disconnected', function(data) {
        console.log("> disconnected "+data);
    wifi.connect(WIFI_NAME, WIFI_OPTIONS, function(err) {
        if (err) {
            console.log("Connection error: "+err);
        wifi.getIP(function(f,ip) {
            console.log("Connected: ", ip);

    The console output is:

    _____                 _
    |   __|___ ___ ___ _ _|_|___ ___
    |   __|_ -| . |  _| | | |   | . |

  • I'm afraid there aren't any events at the moment - where did you find out about them from? You could try this and see if it gives you what you need:"WIFI CONNECTED", function() { wifi.emit("connected"); });"WIFI DISCONNECT", function() { wifi.emit("disconnected"); }); 

    I'm afraid I don't have time to test at the moment, but if it doesn't break anything else I can add it to the module. You might need to use "WIFI GOT IP" instead of "WIFI CONNECTED" though - since I guess you care more about whether you have an IP address than if you're connected.

  • Many thanks Gorden.
    I was confused regarding the Wifi documentation here:­i_connected

  • I know - it is a bit confusing. Ideally that'd be changed - at some point I'll try and bring everything in line a bit more.

    That Wifi library is ESP8266-only at the moment. I'm trying to get it and the EspruinoWiFi library in sync in the hope that at some point I will properly merge the two. Unfortunately we're not quite there yet.
