IDE a little comparison on several ones - for working on ESP

Postby unleash_it » 26. September 2019 17:43

hello dear friends,


i currently try to find out which IDE is best for me.... and for a special task.
I've used VS Code in combination with the PlatformIO for programming the ESP32 and the ESP8266, (i like it more than say for example the Arduino IDE). For the heavier weight IDE I still prefer PyCharm with all the great features for Python-Coding. Well some days ago i have installed Thonny: Thonny has been really good for making some minor changes on the ESP8266 stuff. All right, some might say that it's not as feature rich as PyCharm, but we can use it for some small projects.

now i want to test uPyCraft IDE - in order to work with MicroPython on ESP 32 and 8266 :: i want to share this with others and yes i want to discuss your experience with this IDE. Which experience did you have with this. Did you ever use this!? Well in my experience uPyCraft is a wonderful piece of software and makes using Micropython on esp32 and esp8266 boards a breeze. There are different firmwares that we can use to program the ESP32 Development board and ESP8266 ESP-12E module. uPyCraft IDE runs in any major operating system.


Here in this thread i share a little step-to-step-install-instruction for all of you who did not use this ide untill now:


step1: Before i am going to install the uPyCraft IDE, we sure have to have Python 3.X installed - on the machine.
If someone does not have it he has to make sure that he runs the install Python 3.X. command: one has to run this command to install Python 3 and pip:


Code: Select all
$ sudo apt install python3 python3-pip



well Installing uPyCraft IDE on Linux - this is just a pretty easy and straightforward thing.

What is aimed: uPyCraft IDE i want to use to program the ESP32 or the ESP8266 boards using the MicroPython firmware.
In my opinion, we have many many IDE out there - but a few one are pretty worth to look at: And among those i find uPyCraft IDE as one that is a pretty easy way of programming ESP based boards with MicroPython,


the installation-process:
first step: Download uPyCraft IDE for Linux Ubuntu
go and download uPyCraft IDE for Linux Ubuntu - go to this link: http://docs.dfrobot.com/upycraft/2.1%20 ... Craft.html


then we have to open our Terminal and go to the downloads folder and list all the files that reside there:

Code: Select all
$ cd Downloads
$ ls -l
uPyCraft_linux_V1.X



with this final step we ought to have a pretty similar file (uPyCraft_linux_V1.X) in our downloads folder on our machine. Now we go ahead. now we re making sure that we make that file executable with the following command:


Code: Select all
$ chmod +x uPyCraft_linux_V1.X



finally we re going ahead and open/run the uPyCraft IDE


Code: Select all
$ ./uPyCraft_linux_V1.X





well - which expericend did you make with the above mentioned IDEs !?


love to hear from you
