M5Stack is an open-source modular toolkit for IoT developments based on ESP32. This combines the advantages of the ESP32 with a nice case, buttons, displays, and a stackable concept that helps you accelerate your DIY Projects. This section includes tutorials and project ideas using the M5Stack family.
#Tutorial: MicroPython and Bluetooth (BLE) on M5Stack
M5Stack, MicroPython | 6 min | 30589
The M5Stack is a modular open-source toolkit for developing IoT applications. It is based on an ESP32, which is the core module and there are a lot of stackable modules that you can use for different projects. This enables to do rapid and high-quality prototyping!
You can program the core device using the ESP-IDF framework, the Arduino-IDE, Blockly or MicroPython. Unfortunately, the BLE is still not available using the official M5Stack MicroPython firmware (forked from LoBo). Howeve...
#M5Stack: Christmas Lights using MicroPython & WS2812B Leds
M5Stack, MicroPython | 4 min | 3142
Holiday season has begun and Christmas and the New Year 2020 are approaching! This means, time to reflect and to clean up code and, therefore, I am updating some of the GitHub's projects to summarize the year. I started with the Christmas lights project! But, this time, I took the M5Stack Fire and a new LED panel (WS2812b - 16x16 pixel) and with the XMasLight project, these are the results (Fig. 1 & 2):

#Review: Meet the M5Stack FIRE
M5Stack, MicroPython, Product Reviews | 3 min | 7414
This month, I received the M5Stack FIRE development kit with a PLC base kit from Banggood to review (see Fig. 1). After using it, I can affirm that the M5Stack takes an alternative approach to ESP32 prototyping, because the resulting projects are almost simultaneously finished products. This is possible because the board is housed in a stylish and robust hosing with graphics display, buttons, microSD card slot, USB-C port and speakers. I tested the M5Stack FIRE development kit, and the board i...
