Pycom and Damien George join forces for the ESP32
The PR's will start appearing this coming week.
Any progress here? I have not seen a single PR..
@daniel Awesome! I'm looking forward to it!
@Roosted we are a bit delayed on this but it's definitely going to happen. Last week we were completely overloaded with Sigfox. The PR's will start appearing this coming week.
Is there any news on this?
starting early next week.
We are now almost one week further, and I have not seen any PR.. :(
Would love to see this happen!
Keep the awesome software work going!
Awesome, this is the best news i'e heard form Pycom since a while :D
- Upstream open source code
That's very good news! The long-term benefits to all developers and manufacturers of a single MicroPython evolution stream can't be underestimated:-)
That's the right move for our all good.
@jmarcelino we will continue with our fast pace of development and release cycles, and we'll make sure there's no extra overhead for bug reports and fixes.
We already have commit privileges on the official MicroPython repository, you should be able to see my name here: https://github.com/orgs/micropython/people I've been part of that team since the WiPy 1.0 was in development (~2 years ago) :-)
This is excellent news, having a single ESP32 port with such a permissive license means contributions truly benefit everyone and it's likely there will be a lot more of them.
However at the same time it does add another administrative layer on the "development" stack
User bug report/requirement ->
Pycom -> Pycom repo -> MicroPython repo -> ESP-IDF repo
I hope we can continue to enjoy the short release cycles and fixes while riding the fast moving target that is the ESP-IDF.
Will someone from Pycom join the MicroPython team, for example with commit privileges?
