Edit and execute the file

1. MaixPy has a built-in file system

Support Flash to use SPIFFS (not currently support creating directories), by default assigned to 6MB SPIFFS, boot automatically hang on to /flash the directory

Also supports the FAT format SD (TF) card, boot automatically linked in to /sd the directory

It should be noted that the root directory is only used to mount the SD card or Flash, specific file /flash or /sd directory

2. Why do I need to edit and execute the file?

In the front powering LED experiment, we performed a one directly inside the terminal entering code, so that also simple, we will enter the command executed immediately and promptly returns the data, this interaction is called REPL(Read Eval Print Loop:Interactive interpreter), in this way The advantage is that it is simple and convenient, and it is very similar to the Linux terminal, except that the syntax used is replaced by the MaixPy (Micropython) syntax.

But in most cases, we would like to write the script to a file and then execute the file, so that we don't have to type the code every time, which reduces a lot of trouble.

3. Edit and save the file

In MaixPy, we have a built-in open source editor Micropython Editor(pye)

Use os.listdir() can view the files in the current directory,

Use pye("hello.py") can create a file and enter the edit mode, keyboard shortcuts and other instructions can be found here

Like we write code

print("hello maixpy")

Then press the Ctrl+S press Enter button to save, according to Ctrl+Q exit edit

Note : Use this editor has certain requirements for the use of serial tool, you must be BackSpace key as a DEL function, or else the BackSpace call is Ctrl+H the same function (ie, character replacement).

Linux recommended use minicom, you need sudo minicom -s to set the reference to the previous tutorial

Under Windows, too, according to their own use of the Internet search tool setting methods, such as xshell search Xshell how to set backspace to del to get results:

File → Properties → Terminal → Keyboard,
Change the delete and backspace sequences to ASCII 127.

4. Execution documents

Use os.chdir() Change directory to the directory of the current file, such as os.chdir("/flash")

4.1. Way A: import

Then execute import hello

You can see the output hello maixpy

But be attention, import command can only use once, if you want to execute code more than once, please use the Way B

4.2. Way B: exec()

Use exec() to perform the functions

with open("hello.py") as f:

results matching ""

    No results matching ""
