@me-no-dev
why?
because I want flash to be read faster
so my functions are executed faster
I can live without those GPIOs for the speed gain
FWeinb
@FWeinb
Okay I did not know that it has some runtime performance improvements.
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
flash -> the memory chip that holds your application code
when you read it faster, you can load the code faster in ram and execute it
there are two ways to do it
FWeinb
@FWeinb
That makes perfect sense.
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
change the SPI clock for the Flash chip and Add data lines to e ale to read more data in parallel
a combination of the two is 80MHz QIO
which reads twice faster than 80MHz DIO and 4 times 40MHz DIO

@me-no-dev let's see if they merge it. some projects don't like PRs that consist of more than one commit

@FWeinb
Thanks for the explanation. I am totally new to embedded hardware.

@probonopd
e.g., OpenWrt advises to rebase so that there is only one commit per PR
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
they were fine before ;) plus the commit is kinda embarassing :D
cuz there is try/catch but nothing to raise exception
maybe if there were more than one commits that were changes yes, but they are all merges from master (keeping up with them)

@stefangordon I was having a few issues with the server which hosts package json files, but these are fixed now. 2.1.0-rc2 should be up within few hours

@probonopd
i just would like to say a big "thank you" to @igrr @me-no-dev and this awesome community which totally rocks
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
you're welcome @probonopd ! not sure for what though :D

@probonopd
does anyone have mosquitto running with esp and TLS?
i end in a reboot loop

@/all Anybody knows if exists any small, commercial and affordable transformerless solution to power up my ESP from mains. I've seen some circuits based on LNK306, but I can't find (even on Ali) a board with the chip mounted. Only the chips.

@me-no-dev
@crushedice2000 let me know if you find anything ;) i'm also interested in such thing. Most found are either too noisy or too big
don't know if this fits your "transformerless" solution though, but I don't know how you'd get from 230VAC down to 3.3VDC without some sort of transformer :)
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
there are ways. issues come with current :)
it's really easy to get 30mA, but that is not going to feed the esp
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
@AdySan I have that thing and it's not that small :) you can fit small transformer and bridge inside

@me-no-dev haha, thanks for the heads up, has been in my cart for a few weeks now. but yeah, cheap iPhone chargers ~$1 are the best/smallest power supply for projects.
I tried to open a smart 433MHz socket but the capacitive PS was extremely wimpy.
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
those 433MHz "smart" things use verry little electricity to receive data and they on their own are sooo unpredictable
i send perfect signal to those 3-4 times to be sure they heard me
Aditya Tannu
@AdySan
yeah, the transmitters ususally keep repeating the binary pattern as long as you press the button
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
try swithching 10 at the same time

@probonopd
@AdySan and an usafe option, these $1 chargers...

@me-no-dev @Makuna could we use something like Protothreads http://dunkels.com/adam/pt/ for fades and animations?
I have a sketch that does MQTT, OTA and Neopixels now.
But adding animation to it is not easy
so I wonder whether something like Protothreads could help to make it easier
e.g., instead of strip.SetPixelColor(0, blue); I would like to strip.FadePixelColor(0,1000,blue);
without adding someting to loop() that I need to take care of/that interferes with OTA, MQTT and other stuff
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
ideally OTA and MQTT should run async and your pixels in the loop
then you would not have that problem
OTA needs attention after successful handshake with the computer
and that has tomeout of around 10-20 seconds
do not worry much about OTA
