Just as a very quick note:
Espruino v2.05 seems to run on Calliope mini as well (which was to be expected due to their similarities)
I still have to check how far the compatibility goes, however.
When I'll find some time...
With greetings from Germany,
have you had a chance to test it?
The Calliope has the 32KB Version of the nrf chip, so that might help as well...
unfortunately not. Since time ran out (and my primary goal was to establish s.th. like a "remote control" for BBC micro:bit or similar between PC and board) I switched to the built-in BT services and used them (see https://rozek.de/Microcontrollers/MicroBit/BoardControl/index_de.html, German only, however) Those services turned out to run stable, whereas Espruino did not.
Meanwhile, I bought an Oxocard, which looks much more promising (not from an Espruino perspective, but from its hardware in general) - but now, I first have to complete my online lectures for this semester before I'll find some time to get my hands on it.
With kind regards,
Actually I found a few issues with the micro:bit build a few weeks ago so it might be more stable now.
I don't know how far Calliope is taking inspiration from the micro:bit, but a new micro:bit is being released in a week or two with an updated processor: https://microbit.org/new-microbit/
If Calliope updates as well then you'll find Espruino runs really well on it.
thanks for your response.
I have an Oxocard here (and I do like it) however, for what I have in mind the Calliope mini is better suited as it is by far not so resistant as I need it – and also I would like to see it running on the Calliope mini... ;)
thanks for your answer.
"If Calliope updates as well then you'll find Espruino runs really well on it."
However, the Calliope mini is quite similar to both iterations (features a lot from microbit v1 and a speaker and microphone of the v2).
They released a version2 a couple of months ago, but that features additional hardware (a rather huge flash to store hex files for later use)...
