How to set advanced properties for UI elements (styles) and get more information on micropython modules
@isoeek M5Stack is different. For now at least, it does take a lot of data-mining effort to find information - which is a barrier to those of us with ADD/ADHD obviously.
Also, a lot of what exists is in non-english, as M5Stack's initial focus, going by social media, seems to be on Japan. And so there seems to be a heavier focus on cute "-chan" robots and "-neko" ears and that sort of japan-style "cute" stuff than stuff that would be generally helpful to your typical developer. But it seems to be financing their other development stuff, so whatever works, right? They are releasing new products every week now, so something is working.
Dont give up though. We are all struggling with lack of information/documentation, but I think things are heading in the right direction. UIFlow2 is growing, is a much better system, and eventually should replace UIFlow1.
Truthfully, I would have suggested they didnt release all the hardware before there was good documentation for it, but Im not in marketing, and it may not have been feasible. I guess all I am suggesting is "lots of us understand your difficulties trying to get accurate and usefull info/documentation, but dont give up."
We should also definitely support those people that are working to fix the documentation problem, like ajb2k3
and insaneLX's trick is very helpful

@mtylerjr Thank you, that helps me. It's nice to see others that deal with the same thing and share a common interest. I agree with not releasing the hardware till the documentation was done. I feel lucky that my projects are pretty basic. I unfortunately know this is only till my knowledge broadens. What is the difference with Uiflow2? I went with 1 because it seems there is a lot of growing pains with anything new. I feel M5 makes small well packaged products. I really wish that we could copy and share blocks with others and paste them in any project. I'm sure there is a good reason why they don't do that. Thanks Mtylerjr for reaching out to encourage me. Let me know if you ever need anything. I agree with helping support ajb2k3. I do what I can. I hope M5 is helping to support him as well.

@mtylerjr @IsoEek I have old docs on my GitHub but the UIFlow stuff is supposed to be getting transferred to a website but I just cannot get a look for my website that makes me happy and so the docs don't get uploaded.
The second biggest issue with the docs is that because they are so graphics heavy, I have you use crazy compression
The stack chan craze and Neko craze is because of the massive support network in Japan for "cute "robots I confess that in the UK I too have a stack chan and working on a cosplay Neko cat ear project.

@ajb2k3 Thank you. I'll do that. Do you need more storage space? I have a 500Gb M.2 that was used for a month. I don't need it. I have plenty of storage space. Do you want it? Ill send it to you for free. I like the cat ears. lol
@isoeek no it not storage problem on my machine, it’s online storage and I have no style

@ajb2k3 I have been trying to find the FB group with no success. No link on the M5 stack web (Explore section). As I try to find a group in FB with the name M5 or M5 stack or M5 core.. not hit
Could you share ?
Keep an eye on the CoreS3 documentation page of the M5Stavk site as they are going to add a copy there

@csierra67 I didn't even know that group existed! I just applied too.
I had to be creative to get most of my M5Stack products in their tiny limited "What M5Stack Products do you own" textbox though, lol.
@mtylerjr you didn’t need to write an essay
Sorry, it is the OCD and autism combining with the ADD, lol
@mtylerjr lol, they were created to stop spammers and bots from joining and well I only check to see if people put things in the box’s. The actual content of the answers are not often checked
