Utility programs for Micropython ...
- bin/mpy-upload : copy files in to a device using only the REPL.
- bin/mpy-download : copy files from a device using only the REPL.
- bin/mpy-sync : copy whole directory structure
- bin/mpy-fuse : mount a device into the filesystem using FUSE ...
- bin/mpy-watch : watch a directory for changes and send the diffs
- bin/mpy-reset : just remotely reset the device
Using serial ports directly
All four utilities by default will connect directly to /dev/ttyUSB0 at 115200 baud.
These can be overridden with the
Using serial ports attached to stdin/stdout
picocom is a terminal emulator program that allows you to specify external file transfer programs. The external program is launched with the serial port attached to stdin and stdout.
The mpy-utils have a
--pipe option which enables this usage.
eg. The following command will set mpy-sync as the picocom file-send program.
picocom -b 115200 -s "mpy-sync --pipe --reset" /dev/ttyUSB0
From within picocom, hit ctrl-A ctrl-S to initiate file-send mode. Type in the filename to send (tab-completion seems to be available), and hit enter. The file will be sent via mpy-sync, and you'll be returned to picocom.
You can also specify the filenames on the picocom/mpy-sync command-line, and from picocom, just his ctrl-A ctrl-S and enter. No filenames needed.
Submitting Pull Requests
Before submitting a pull request, please add yourself to the list of contributors below, and install black so you can reformat your code using the following command:
black *.py bin/* mpy_utils/*.py
This will hopefully prevent me from ever having to think about source code formatting again.
