[M5Paper] UiFlow support



  • Any information on when the support for M5paper is coming to the official VS code extension for micropython? I can set my device to usb mode but it doesn't find it.

    Thank you guys it works! You saved me :) ... finally I can switch to micropython, programming using arduino IDE was kind of slow and painful

    Like having teeth pulled!
    No worries, glad to help.



  • That's very nice to be able to use UIFlow with M5Paper, thanks. 🥰

    This also open the door to micropython.
    I tried it and it works in UIflow.

    Now, I'm trying to figure out how to add libraries.
    With M5 core, I use either thonny or rshell.
    But I could not connect to M5Paper with those.

    The only tool that worked was Mu editor, but only to see the REPL. Could not access files.

    Is there a trick to upload files on M5Paper?



  • Does anyone have ideas to put MicroPython libraries on the M5Paper?

    Yes, there is a trick but alas i forget the trick and struggle to upload.
    I'm using thonny and its hit and miss accessing the paper.



  • So no stable solution for now, that’s sad.
    It’s a bit frustrating to have some micropython working but not the full experience.
    At some point, that could be better to switch to hardware that runs CircuitPython, less struggle.



  • OK, I got it.
    To use Thonny or other micropython IDE's with the M5Paper, you need to put the paper into "App Mode" in the menu as UIFlow and USB mode do not allow access to REPL.



  • As this is not my first M5 board, I think I was in App mode. But as the main source of errors is often between the chair and the keyboard, I'll focus my attention on this point 😉

    I'm writing a book on the coreink and m5paper and spent a week trying to work it out!
    now if i could only get the internal sht30 to work
