pybytes shows offline despite successful send_signal() messages

  • I'm working with a Fipy and sending batches of signals every 30 seconds. Most of the time, my Fipy just says "offline" although occasionally it will connect and allow me to push code remotely. Sometimes, I am able to stop running code by Telnetting in and using Ctrl-C. Other times, this doesn't work, it appears to break the running code but it restarts when the next alarm cycle returns.

    if I print(pybytes.isconnected()), I get true as a return. but it still shows offline. is there any command that should reestablish the expected ping capability?

  • @Stuart-Gall Hi Stuart. There is an issue with how filenames/folders are handled. This will be addressed in the next release, but for the moment please make sure filenames have a dot like or config.json and foldernames do not have a dot, like lib or whatever. Unfortunately things can go wrong with files like README, or folders like .git

  • I think this could be a bug where the size of the files on the device are too large for pybytes.

    try this

    >>> pybytes.enable_terminal()
    >>> Unhandled exception in thread started by <bound_method>
    Traceback (most recent call last):

  • I have the same problem with Lopy4 and Wipy3 devices. Connecting manually to Pybytes is successful and I can see ping messages received by Pybytes in the browser, e.g. 'Last connection 2 seconds ago', but I cannot deploy a new release, upload from Github or list project hierarchy in pymakr online. Pybytes reports device as 'offline' even when pings are clearly being received. I have tried deleting and adding devices to Pybytes again, creating new projects, erasing device memory and re-flashing firmware (1.20.2.R4). I have also tried with brand-new Lopy4.

    connecting to Pybytes...
