WiPy micropython board

Anybody playing with the WiPy and home-assistant? Similar to the nodeMCU but uses micropython which for me is a big selling point

There are two blog post about MicroPython on the ESP8266 development boards.

After the morning I’ve had with C on my particle, this looks like a dream.! https://docs.pycom.io/pycom_esp32/pycom_esp32/tutorial/includes/mqtt.html

I have a couple of nodemcu boards running micropython that I use to send temp/humidity/motion back to HA via mqtt.

Below is one that I use to monitor my homebrew:

Thanks @smolz that is significantly more elegant code that the C provided below.! Cheers

I am just recently getting into this. Do you have examples of more of your micro-python code? So far I have this but I am not really a programmer:

Yes checkout:

Do you have any examples with callback? I have implemented this so there isnt a delay when movement is detected via the PIR but not sure if there is a better way.

I haven’t yet, have you seen

https://docs.pycom.io/pycom_esp32/pycom_esp32/tutorial/includes/pir.html

Otherwise I recommend the pycom forum, very useful
