Micropython and C++

  • Can you run micropython and C++ (arduino) on M5stack using the same firmware? I would like to program with both as some libraries are only available for C++.
    Can you launch a C++ script from micropython? I this is possible can you please give details of how to do it?

  • No you cannot. The term firmware in this case can be a bit misleading. It is compiled code of micropython interpreter written in c/c++ language with implemented support for uploading or running python scripts via uiflow online editor or usb connection. you might as well call a c/c++ program compiled and uploaded using arduino a firmware.

  • No you cannot. Micropython's firmware includes an interpreter as well as having the MP libraries to run where as Arduino/C does not need the interpreter and runs on a lower level overwriting the firmware.
