Coming from Arduino to Micropython which ide for a Mac?

  • I am a new programmer and have some limited skills, but I have now wasted 2 days trying to solve a problem. I am looking for a IDE to program a ESP8266 12E and have been able to flash it and then hook it up to pycharm, but I cannot figure out how the interaction of pycharm and the board works. There seems to be little info online. Can someone help me out? I can write python code to some degree but it’s all the backend connections that I think I’m struggling with. Thanks in advance.

  • @andrew-alberty Most people use Thonny as the IDE.
    P.S.: Using the ESP8266, you may better discuss your topics at the genuine MicroPython forum
