@bidyutper i have an IR blaster circuit with code
has anyone used the ESP as a wifi repeater? does it work well?

@skorokithakis , since ESP hardware layer doesn't have routing capabilities and neither current SDK doesn't have routing in software layer, the ESP can't act as a router, therefore repeater isn't possible too ...

@martinayotte Ah, I see, thanks Martin
Does anyone here want to try the micropython firmware for the ESP? I haven't received it yet, but I can share when I do

I've tried quickly old MicronPhyton for ESP more than size months ago, it was working. The NEW outgoing version should be a BIG hit, but I didn't got time to follow all the news on the Kickstarter campaign

@skorokithakis wow..thts nice project so far I came across.....btw I intended to make an wifi bluster alone which is full control of IR control devices along with full control codes of ac tv etc....makin a lots of mqtt clients now a days like PIR, MQ2, IR-Bluster, individual wall socket light, Dimmer, Door bell, Door Lock, triggering IP camera via Mqtt request save images to Rpi ftp server, window contact for security alarm,motorized curtain control......all wll be connected via Rpi Mqtt broker .....so far I m doin only local level control .....&work is in progress.....Mobile app wll be in next phase.

@bidyutper That's a great idea, my project has a lot of those, so maybe you can copy my code

Makuna can you maybe help "port" your library to AdySans example sketch...I'll try on my own but I might be unsucceful because of my noobness :), if you guys can guide me a bit it would be nice since I'd learn new stuff :)

I'll try something and then ask

I'd also like to expand it with animations if possible

Has anyone seen crashes with the webserver's authenticate(user, pass) method?
here, the delete[] statements cause crashes, every time!

@kzyapkov Yes, I pointed out this bug just yesterday! See issue #1790, there seems to be a (pretty easy) solution.

which delete exactly?
looking at the code, whatever is allocated is then freed. there are no double deletes for an alloc, so why would it fail?
Daniele Colanardi
@dancol90
Mar 18 2016 15:06
@me-no-dev because toencode buffer is 1 byte smaller than what the code needs
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
Mar 18 2016 15:06
yeah just read the issue, so not a delete problem actually
Daniele Colanardi
@dancol90
Mar 18 2016 15:08
looking at the stack dump it seems to crash when trying to delete the wrongly sized buffer...
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
Mar 18 2016 15:09
yes because at the end of the buffer is finding a zero instead of the end marker/poison bytes
