    I you are bringing the file via the ide with require then it will be minified before it is sent to the board - so in this case using external tools won't be of much benefit.

    If it's working with dio for micro python - then that's unlikely.

    Do a flash erase first - there might be something in flash left over that is giving you grief.

    What flashing command did you use?

    If you used dio try qio or vice-versa..

    The baud rate to use is 115200.

    Sometimes after flashing you need to disconnect the USB and reconnect.

    Are you using the chrome extenstion?

    You could try the native windows installer version.

    If the puck is paired, it doesn’t advertise any more. So if one device is auto connecting- they will stop it. And pulling the battery it might auto connect on re-power up. So turn off Bluetooth on all devices you have connected to.

    For the boot loader mode it needs to be a particular length of time to hold the button down - it’s a kind of tricky timing thing.

    Please can you remove the spam message above?

    The problem is that it will break everyone's existing configs. And anyone coming from the esp32/esp8266 world expects the board rate to be 115200, as this the the default for the device.

    The issue initially was with microbit. Is it possible to attempt a connection via the set rate - and no command prompt is detected, drop to 9600 and test the connection then?

    If you change the method here to get

    <form action="#" method="post">

    You can then just the parse the values of out the URL string.

    Unfortunately I don't think that's on the ESP8266

    This does work on the ESp8266. It's the ESp32 that it has not been implemented on.

    Get your esp8266 to do a http.get to your remote server. The IP of the request on your remote server will be your current public IP address.

    Anternatively, you can use a Dynamic DNS service, like https://www.noip.com/ . They offer a free service - although you have to update every month. This means that you can use a DNS name and this name will get updated to you current IP.

    You will also need to port forward on your router so that a request on your router gets forwarded to the esp8266. As @Ollie suggested on another thread - it's best to give your esp8266 a static IP based on the MAC address so you know what address to forward too.
