Project description

Latest PyPI version

upyflashed

A command to watch for new hex files from https://github.com/ntoll/upyed and flash the micro:bit immediately

upyflashed will poll your browser download directory for new hex files. If one is found it will copy it to the micro:bit storage location.

Note: The approach attempts to be cross platform but bug reports / fixes gratefully accepted. Currently tested on Linux and Windows.

Installation

pip install upyflashed

Usage

$ upyflashed

Default options:

  • download path: ~/Downloads
  • microbit path: psutils looks for a disk partition mount point ending in MICROBIT

Custom

$ upyflashed --help
usage: upyflashed [-h] [--download_path DOWNLOAD_PATH]
                  [--microbit_path MICROBIT_PATH] [-v]
