pymakr will not sync project



  • I am loosing the will to live here.
    I am having a reoccurring problem with pymakr just hanging when trying to sync a project after a previous successful sync.
    I have the latest firmware installed.
    I can telnet/ftp/screen (I'm on OSX) to the picot LoPy unit
    I can see the REPL cli in pymakr
    But whenever I try to sync a simple project (setup.py and main.py) it just hangs

    My project is setting the IP address using DHCP to my local network (successfully)

    The only way I can seem to recover is to always have to do a factory reset of the filesystem
    this seems pretty extreme and unacceptable operation.
    Any ideas? Any way of getting a log file for the comms between pymakr and the LoPy board?

    MicroPython v1.8.6-379-gc44ebac on 2017-01-13; LoPy with ESP32



  • @livius thank you so much, I too was banging my head with the same issue, FTP is much better and reliable, I'm using tera term to see the console.
    thanks
    Cheers



  • @livius thanks for the advice will give it a go.



  • @feabhas
    Do this in different way:

    1. create file e.g. wifi_sta.py
    2. write to it any config (IP settings) and other methods
    3. in e.g. main.py write
      if button()==1: #you can use ==0 if you need different action to be default
      execfile('wifi_sta.py')

    in this way if your sync will fail
    you have still your board with default AP settings when you press button or not

    and in my opinion - do not use Pymakr.
    I do not use it - only i work by ftp - edit and put file back
    It is faster for me.
