Getting started with MicroPython

What is MicroPython?

MicroPython allows you to run Python on constrained embedded devices, including our favorite ESP8266 and ESP32. It is a full Python compiler and runtime.

You can use MicroPython on the whole range of our boards with ESP8266 like ANAVI Thermometer, ANAVI Gas Detector, ANAVI Light Controller, ANAVI Miracle Controller, ANAVI Fume Extractor, etc.

How to Install MicroPython?

Follow the steps below to install MicroPython on ANAVI Thermometer or any other of our open source hardware development boards with ESP8266:

esptool.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 erase_flash
esptool.py --port /dev/ttyUSB0 --baud 460800 write_flash --flash_size=detect 0  esp8266-20191220-v1.12.bin
  • Install a terminal emulation program for serial communication, for example picocom:
sudo apt install picocom
  • Start the terminal emulation program with baud rate 115200, for example on Ubuntu:
sudo picocom /dev/ttyUSB0 -b115200
  • Write “Hello World”:
print ("Hello World!")
