We've got our blink on... Python style!
If you haven't had a chance to check out the specs on Maple Native:
- 1MB external SRAM
To summarize, its got some junk in the trunk.
Last week we had a meeting to figure out a good way to demonstrate why EVERYBODY will not be able to live without it, and AJ chimes in with: "Has anybody played around with PyMite?"
PYTHON!... on a microcontroller! That you can interact with! At runtime! Tooo good to be true.
Took me a week of randomly banging on a keyboard but yesterday we typed blinky into interactive pymite (IPM) and... let's just say I'm giddy.
Anyway, we think it might be ready for some users to play around with. It's still rough around the edges, but if you've got a Maple Native or a Maple RET6 Edition and want to partake in some luscious Python goodness, then grab the latest release from our projects repo on GitHub (sorry, but this little slice of heaven is currently only usable from the command line toolchain):
$ git clone git://github.com/leaflabs/projects.git
Then follow the hastily written up instructions on the wiki.
