hoping to use Espruino in education outreach projects (primary and secondary)
Most recent activity
That’s definitely one exciting device. I’m using Espruino in outreach projects that are focused on IoT sensor technology, and this would be the best matching device that exists in the market. Just a real shame they don’t have LoRaWAN on board :(( I’d love to see an Espruino equivalent of LoPy4 our FiPy with PySense (or maybe see Espruino ported to these :)
Great, I’ll order some and give them a go. Will post an update here once I’ve found out. Thanks again.
thanks for your advice - quick as always... much appreciated!
Do you think that either / both of these would work? (They both claim to have voltage regulators).
If you think they should work, i'll just try both.
The Sparkfun board also seems to look good but it requires soldering the headers on and the reviews are pretty mixed (why don't they sell a version with headers???)
has anyone found a wifi shield that works on the Pixl.js without any rewiring or modification? I am aware of this tutorial: http://www.espruino.com/arduino-esp8266, which is great... Unfortunately, my target group for this project (very young students) won't be able to change the boards. Hardware has to be plug and play, which is the primary reason for choosing Espruino in the first place.
The development goal is a BLE GATT to MQTT via Wifi gateway. Unfortunately, the Espruino Wifi won't work for this either, since it doesn't support BLE. Any pointers appreciated.
That’s good to hear. In that case it’s probably better to use the UART. Thanks!
I actually have a few old Androids lying around. Maybe I'll try that.
On a related matter: I need to transfer larger amounts of data via the BLE connection (offline data logging). From studying the web resources, the normal approach (see here) appears to sequentially write to a characteristic, exploiting the events / exceptions
These don't seem to be exposed in the NRF library. What do you recommend? (I think I could exploit the UART interface, but I would like to be able to implement the same protocol on non-Espruino devices later so that I don't have to change the central side).
