How to create partition tables on pycom (fipy) ?



  • Hi there!

    I'm trying to create some partitions on my fipy's file system. Since pycom runs on an ESP32 I went for a look
    at espressif.com, which gave me a reasonable understanding of the subject. Then again, I'm a beginner with
    pycom and even micropython. I've done it with an Arduino, but that works elsewise.

    Espressif provides some nice information and even a tool (python):
    https://docs.espressif.com/projects/esp-idf/en/latest/esp32/api-guides/partition-tables.html#python-api

    I will have several questions, but for now:

    1. I can't even import the module. (I work on a Mac)
    2. would you rather work with the terminal oder with atom? does it even matter?
    3. REPL is cool, but it confuses me, when and how to use properly in such a situation.
    4. is there anything I absolutely shouldn't do while working on partitions?

    Does anybody has some experience with partitioning (on a mac/linux)?

    thanks in advance.

    cheers, lucy
