Advice on new project


#1

I’ve recently started a new project with a nodeMcu card (ESP8266). The idea was to build a device for Mozilla Iot framework. I have run into all kinds of problems that according to internet that don’t exist in ESP32. From the beginning my decision was that ESP32 was to expensive and I did not need the power.

No, i would like to make reevaluate that decision.

I would like to base my project on the ESP32-Solo-1 module from Expressif.

I need a development environment for that module that is:

  • development board.
  • compatible with PlatformIO
  • compatible with the Arduino framework ( all my code is done for that framework).
  • Supports debugging ( no more printf).
  • Schematic should be available ( later I am gonna build my own hardware )
  • “open for suggestions that makes life easier”

Please advice/recommend.

How you see this http://docs.iot-bus.com/en/latest/tutorials/index.html ?

This line is confusing, depends on your development board. Maybe it can be clarified.

   const int ledPin = 5;  // manually configure LED pin

I also thing this line is wrong:

   "@type": ["Light", "OnOffSwitch"],

One thing I having problem understanding with this example ( so actually it is not your problem )

    const char* ledTypes[] = {"OnOffSwitch", "led", nullptr};

“OnOffSwitch” is defined by Thing specification, but “led” ???
For definitions see https://iot.mozilla.org/schemas/

In general, great tutorial :smile:

For more feedback on the Mozilla IoT framework, you can chat live with the Mozilla IoT team and the active development community using the public IRC channel (irc.mozilla.org channel #iot) or open a discussion on Discourse IoT or open an issue on github.com/mozilla-iot. Glad to see more developers get on board helping to decentralize, privatize, and standardize interaction of IoT device data using the web!
