My USb-Serial adaptor just arrived, but my ESP boards are still in the post - what can i do with the usb-serail programmer before the board arrives?

even from sd
so naysayers be gone :P

You could use a plethora of better suited protocols for micro controllers.

TFTP (super lightweight), MQTT (small payloads), HTTP (bloated but widely supported)

can I ask something related to PlatformIO....?
looks like it copies files from somewhere to .pioenvs/ folder under the project directory, but... where does it copy those files from?

@Palatis I have the same problem with you
I don't known the process of how compile the source code

there's lib_dir in platformio.ini, but can't find one for for hardware variants...
@lishidetiankong i dun really care how it compiles and generates the executable as long as it works XD
@lishidetiankong need a exception decoder badly, anyway.

@Palatis like, um, gdb? :)

@igrr well gdb'd be good... but i always get exceptions inside the closed source part.

Apr 13 2016 14:53
too bad... Still, check GDBStub library for gdb instructions if you haven't already

now i just searching under ~/.atom......
but found nada
looks like automatically runs install for missing board files
but where does it put them?
gj... found it......
home_dir
Is used to store platform toolchains, frameworks, external libraries, service data and etc.

A default value is User’s home directory:

Unix ~/.platformio
Windows %HOMEPATH%\.platformio
This option can be overridden by global environment variable PLATFORMIO_HOME_DIR.
not under ~/.atom...
no wonder it's not there...
cuz its just not there.......

Hello People! I'm working in an IoT platform & SDK with a friend and we want to hear some feedback from you guys. Is anyone interested on checking this?

You can find a full explanation of the project here: http://www.esp8266.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9429
If you reply there would be great to get some traction :D

@vic10us mqtt is not suitable really for uploading/downloading files, nor did i see any apps that streamline the procedure on the desktop (i did not properly look, so if you know of any, i would be glad to give it try). http is not much better, downloading multiple files is that even possible? making an archive on the esp is a non starter… i will look into tftp, thank you
@rdelvalle it needs more screenshots :p
and more info
you ve got stuff related to how to connect, how to add a sensor, etc, but i can t see the end result anywhere, where does the data go to die?
so to speak

also, since this seems targeted to begginers, i think you need some examples on how to electrically connect the sd18b20 for instance
sorry, that s there
but it could do with some more explanations, what pin it uses, why, what that big nodemcu on the bread board is, value of resistor
etc

dunno, i kinda wanna hack GMS so i can send/receive directly on the ESP...
maybe port the codes from uG
gotta find a way to work around the ssl problem on esp first.
