  • @lukasmaximus Also, bom dia :D Stick a tiny gps unit into a m5stack stick and I'll approve it, so you can sell it as a veterinarian-approved gps tracked :P



  • Hi M5Stack Faces here, pretty cool. I'm in USA and have played around with iOT projects of various nature, Arduino and others. Mostly, I like to collect mini computers; PocketChip, Arduboy, Gole1, RasPi Zero W, and of course I have an M5StickC on the way from the official store! A while back I took a C++ course and am currently working my way through a Python 3 book but I only really program for fun. I use various tools and languages across many platforms to accomplish some crazy things. Thanks for having me hope we can all grow and learn together.



  • Hello to everyone here.
    My name is Reiner, I live and work in Germany. I work as an assembler for a company that manufactures hall cranes. I think the M5Stack is great, not like the Arduino loose circuit board and so on, but the m5Stack and the sensors all compact and well thought out packed in housings.
    Unfortunately I don't always have so much time and I would be happy if sometime a manual and also UIFlow would appear translated into German.
    I have a little knowledge of Arduino, but I am not the great programmer.
    Since I also have other hobbies like 3D printing with the Anycubic Photon,i3 Mega S and the Chiron and milling with a portal milling machine for model making (Stepcraft-2/D.420).

    I'm just fascinated by writing, programming, drawing and when it's done the printer or the milling machine or the M5Stack does it.

    And the possibilities are almost unlimited because there are so many sensors, I'm still at the beginning and have to understand the M5Stack, unfortunately there are only books about the ESP32, but maybe it will change when there are more people who use it.

    Maybe someone here has a tip how and where I can learn the M5Stack and programming , would then like to program with Arduino or UIFlow !!



  • @skink Hi, I am currently working on the UIFlow book in english and hope to release a german version along side a polish and english version before the year is out.



  • @ajb2k3
    I know that I should be more familiar with English, because when it comes to programming, it will always be in English see Arduino programming software and of course UIFlow.
    I've already downloaded your manual if not yet finished and sent it through the translator, that's a really big help.
    Thank you very much for your efforts in advance!



  • @ajb2k3
    By the way, the software for the IOT Demo Board
    revised in the meantime and works now !
    There is a new version at Github.

    I had written to "support@m5stack.com" and they took a closer look at the program and the bug during compilation were fixed!



  • @skink Glad its of use. I'm currently passed the main book to work on a pure UIFlow version. I will be posting an update to it later but after that there wont be any updates until December.
    I have someone who has offered to help me with the German version so that will be of help.

    I started work on a uiflow guide for the demo board but ran out of time to keep working on it.



  • @ajb2k3 No problem, they work on several projects at the same time, so one or the other project has to wait.
    But as I said with the Arduino version for the test board, everything works!



  • @skink Thats because the initial source was released in c and so is easy to port to arduino. In Micropyton (and UIFLOW by extension) it is taking longer for the code to be written.
