#MicroPython: VSCode IntelliSense, Autocompletion & Linting capabilities
MicroPython | 4 min | 43106
Last December, I wrote an article telling you that I was switching from Atom.io to Visual Studio Code to program MicroPython. Nowadays, I'm still using VSCode and the PyMakr extension. The latter enables the communication to a board running MicroPython using the built-in command line REPL. Thus, I can run a single file on my board, sync my entire project or directly type and execute commands using the Terminal on VSCode. However, I was missing some of the main features of VSCode, namely IntelliSense, autocompletion, and linting capabilities. Last month, BradenM contacted me and told me that he...
#MicroPython: Programming an ESP using Jupyter Notebook
MicroPython | 6 min | 19158
I was looking at my last articles about MicroPython and my new articles about Jupyter and Docker, and I thought if it is possible to make a mix between Jupyter and the ESP boards. I use usually Visual Studio Code to program the ESP but for analytics I use Jupyter. I looked if it was possible to connect the Jupyter kernel to the ESP using the serial port and: Yes!, it is possible. This can be a great tool to teach kids to access data from connected sensors and analyze it us...
#MicroPython: Visual Studio Code (VSCode) as IDE
MicroPython | 3 min | 81257
Quoting the official MicroPython's website:
MicroPython is a lean and efficient implementation of the Python 3 programming language that includes a small subset of the Python standard library and is optimised to run on microcontrollers and in constrained environments.
Besides C++ and C, I use MicroPython to program microcontrollers, especially the ESP32/ESP8266 types. These two microcontrollers are compatible with MicroPython and it is easy to integrate sensors and actors programming using this language. I wrote a tutorial about installing MicroPython on the ESPs, as well a lot of articles a...
#Tutorial: Getting started with MicroPython
MicroPython | 5 min | 29613
Another quick tutorial, this time for MicroPython on ESP32/ESP8266. You can find all the information that I'm writing in this post in different articles on the Internet but I've not found anything that summarizes all the topics. That is why I am writting this article. I included some links at the end of each topic to extend the info. Feel free to visit them, if you want more information, or write a comment I will try to reply it ASAP!
