This may sound like a silly question, but... is the Espruino Pico at all compatible with the Arduino IDE? I've looked and haven't seen anyone online using the hardware with the IDE, but since it's based on the Cortex M4 and the Teensy has software and compilers available for the IDE, I was wondering.
I'm looking to use a couple of the Picos for a project I'm working on (a small 12 servo robot) and have everything I need except microcontrollers, and this would be perfect - largely due to the size and the availability of multiple serial ports.
Espruino and Arduino run under quite different premises... if you already have all in one environment - the Arduino - environment, you may go with that.
I'd though consider taking a closer look what you *really+ have to port over, because Espruino way more powerful and not only from computing power assuming you talk Arduino Uno or a like - which is 8 bit vs 32 Espruino - but also from high-level programming and programming style: Espruino gives you the event-drivenness, where as with Arduino you are stuck in the execution loop. Agreed, the loop is faster as long as you do not over-load it... but when you get there, it is a hard limit.
You may have some luck with these tools (Arduino STM32 libraries) and the Pico, but it's not something I've tried, or that we support in any way so you'd definitely be on your own. You can however solder over some pads on the back of the board to make the button force it into USB DFU mode so you can update the firmware that way.
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.
