Pymate connection failure - assertion error in simple.py when trying to run boot.py



  • Hi all. I posted this in the pymate section a few days ago, but maybe I'll get a better response here?

    Can anyone else connect to their LoPy (or any other device) using Pymate? I am trying to accomplish this, and I manage to add the device in my android app, but it never connects.

    When opening Boot.py from my Atom/Pymakr setup, I see that it attempts to connect to a wifi network, then initiates the pymate/MQTT service. I know it's connected because I use an app called Fing to see all devices connected to my Wifi network and my LoPy device appears among them.

    When it gets to trying to start the service, I get an assertion error in the REPL that can be traced back to line 168 of simple.py (which is one of the files automatically installed during pymate setup). Unfortunately, this assertion failure is about as far as my knowledge of such things goes.

    Is anyone else able to replicate this? Is it a bug or something I am doing wrong? Any clues? I am very excited to use the pymate interface, but it still seems very buggy.

    Thanks all.
