• Hello,
    I am quite new to Espruino, (was similar to Arduino) and I really like Espruino more than Arduino.

    So, I have written a simple code from examples -

    var led;
    require("IRReceiver").connect(5, function(code) {
      if(code=="100000000111111110101100010100­111") toggle();
    function onInit() {
      console.log("init running...");
      digitalWrite(4, 1);
    function toggle() { 
      led= !led; 
      digitalWrite(4, led);

    This code works really well. It reads signals and does his job. But, when I press button for 50 or 60 times, board restarts and says -

    ets Jan  8 2013,rst cause:4, boot mode:(3,2)
    wdt reset
    load 0x40100000, len 2408, room 16

    chksum 0x84
    load 0x3ffe8310, len 632, room 0

    csum 0xd8

    jump to run user1 @ 1000
    âìoärûg|ìdd`ãrÛlþLoading 3031 bytes from flash...

    I know that cause: 4 is watchdog reason. Also I know that ES8266 is not such powerful board to handle working on big data. And also I know that when it turns led, watchdog can trigger at that moment and if many of those situations will be, buffer simply goes full.

    So, my question is - how I can fix this issue so that if I will press button for 500 times restart must not appair? Something that will stop watchog receiving data when board does another operations? I tried to do this with transistor - when I pressed button and code was recognized, transistor was shutting down IR receiver, but the problem was same.

Espruino restarting on many IR signals recieve (watchdog retsarting)
