Just wanted to say hello, and that I’m digging into your project! I have 2 T-Beam/TTGo boards with GPS and just got the 0.8.2 build of the firmware (Currently the EU band but I have 2 US band devices inbound from BangGood.
The setup instructions suggested posting in here with successes/issues, so… Success! Other than my soldering skills needing some practice, it went smoothly!
A comment and a question.
The device-install.sh and device-update.sh scripts for installing via terminal (on my Macbook Pro) basically just invoke esptool.py, simple… Except that I do a lot of messing around with serial devices. By default those scripts just start at the first /dev/cu.* device and try to connect.
Probably works fine normal case, but in my case I have 11 devices in that list! esptool.py lets you specify the port to use by setting : export ESPTOOL_PORT to the right one. It’s just a couple line change, but might help someone. I’d be happy to add a couple error checks and submit a change, or not!
Question: Watching the logs (I haven’t dug into the code yet), I see this:
JOINING WIFI: ssid=geeksville.
Is that for something in particular? Seems like battery suck if it is scanning wifi often.
Anyways, interesting stuff, let me know if I can help! I’ve worked in mobile since before J2ME, and I have Android/iPhone dev environments, Raspberry Pi, a grip of ESP32’s etc… It’s a bit of an addiction, but may as well put them to use!
