ESPEasy make it selectable and clickable !

#1 Post by sash.sc » 17 May 2018, 21:24

Hello everybody.

First of all a big praise. I briefly tested the latest ESPEasy Mega. Had to realize that there probably someone has installed the turbo. :o :D

However I have a problem to compile 3 modules from the Playground with.
1x SI1145
1x VEML6070
1x VEML6075

It occurred to me that it is not possible to make ESPEASY Mega clickable.
If I use ESPEasy for an ESP8266, mostly I need only max.5 modules.

I mean that you can select the modules you need on a web interface and download the ready compiled and working .bin file.

It should not only be the working modules, including those from the playground.

I've seen something lika that with the firmware for the NodeMCU.

What do you all mean ?

Greetings

Regarding the playground plugins you need to get in touch with the developer. They need to PR it to the mega branch.

Hmm, that's a nice build option provided for NodeMCU.
Not sure how many resources are needed to make such a service available.

I also liked this option.
Especially if I want to compile myself, I have some great problems to include plugins from the Playground.
The advantage would be that all libraries were already installed and you don´t have to worry about it yourself.

and as I said.
I don't need everything that is available in the MEGA version.

And I also believe that there is no one who can use everything from the MEGA.
Since the ESP8266 can only handle 12 tasks at the same time.

And if I just think about this option, that should give the popularity of ESPEasy still a big boost!

This is my opinion ! ;-)

It's really a great idea and we'd be able to know more about the actual code base used. Today we are a bit left in the dark with issues reported by self compilers. It's really something for the future. Thanks for the inspiration :)

I see a lot of question for options. Fine, but what i miss is a successor of ESPEasy_R120. With all respect, the rest are all experimental projects.

Yes, I agree and we're doing our best to release the 2.1 version before summer. But we're only two dedicated developers that is spending more regular time on the project. Don't get me wrong, me and TD-er love every minute of it, only everyday life with work (getting money) is the reality we need to face :)

I am working very hard on getting this version ready.
There has been a rather unfortunate miscommunication which led to quite big changes which would have been better done after the mega release. But those resulted to a significant improvement in speed and future possibilities.
But is it set the project back about 2 months.

My main focus is now on bug fixes and improvement of stability.
And it is hard see what stability issues are related to specific plugins, and what not.
So a bit part of the time is spent on getting enough information to know what is really happening.

@ grovkillen and TD-er, i appreciate your work. I saw that r120 was from October 2016 and R147 was from November 2016 and now it's May 2018 and we have still no stable version. But is see a lot of requests, that's why i replied. And i now it's a hobby project what must done in your spare time. So i'm very happy with your work :) For me, i don't have the skills to do this. I 'm just a simple user.

You can do it by yourself and make your own complilation, using Arduino IDE and editing define_plugin_sets.h file. It's not clickable :], but also easy.
Please excuse my English, thanks!
