Recent News and Updates on ESPToy

This post is a quick update on the recent development of ESPToy. I made a video and here is a brief summary of what I covered:

  • New version 1.22 which has added LiPo battery jack and charger (see previous announcement here).
  • New startup demo with more polished user interface and better reliability across browsers.
  • Overstocked ESPToy printed circuit boards (PCBs) available at Rayshobby Shop.
  • Comparisons with NodeMCU and Adafruit’s upcoming Huzzah.
  • Power socket modified with ESPtoy.

Here are some snapshots.

    I am using the ESPToy 1.22 with micro USB port. The init.lua program will not run on Chrome browser. I formatted the ESP and now Chrome will not even find the ESPToy on 192.168.4.1. I found a wifi station script that did work well and even grabbed a gif from the web. Thank you for the work that you put into this project.

      What do you mean by formatted ESP? I have never heard of formatting the ESP.

    ESPlorer has a button on the right marked “FORMAT”.
