Do button for IFTTT with ESP8266-EVB now you have endless opportunities to make receipts with the IFTTT tools

1

IFTTT is a web platform that facilitates connections between other big platforms under the form of recipes giving a great degree of flexibility in creating mashups. You can interact with almost  every social platform on the web like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. For this purpose you make receipts like: If I get e-mail with picture on my Gmail account store the picture in my Dropbox and share it on Twitter, or etc.

Just a few days ago IFTTT launched a channel for makers.This was a highly awaited feature since until now it was impossible to connect prototypes to the recipes and only a few approved devices were available from large producers that were accepted in the platform. The Maker channel changes all that. It allows both making web requests to the channel to send events to other platforms from devices and from other platforms to the devices.

Constantin Craciun almost immediately add “DO” button with ESP8266-EVB and here is his tutorial.

You can see on this video how he uses ESP8266 to switch ON and OFF lamp via his phone:

Now you can think of endless apps for this DO button, like sending SMS “I’m home” to parents phones when the kid arrive from school and press the button.

Or button at the reception desk of hotel which send message to taxi company “go to hotel xxx to pickup customer”, etc. etc.

We are working on the small cloud broker for our ESP8266 IoT Firmware, and this IFTTT API will be definitely among the first implemented!

ESP8266-EVB support for JTAG development with flash load, breakpoints, disassembly, step debugging in Visual Studio C/C++

17-stepover

Ivan Shcherbakov @SysProgs shared interesting article. He wrote support for ESP8266-EVB to VisualGDB Visual Studio plugin for embedded software development in C/C++.

With this plugin you can use JTAG to debug code in ESP8266, also to set breakpoints, view the disassembled code etc. This adds new level for professional developing using ESP8266.

LiteBSD is a variant of 4.4BSD operating system adapted for microcontrollers. Currently, only the Microchip PIC32MZ family is supported as a target. It is equipped with MMU with paging support, and 512kbytes of on-chip RAM. These resources are enough to build a compact networked embedded system.

PIC32-HMZ144 support is on the LiteBSD Github

Devuan is Debian fork to get rid of so much disputed SystemD used in the newer version of Debian.

We were nice surprised to see that there are pre-built images for Devuan Jessie for A10-OLinuXino-LIME, A20-OLinuXino-LIME, A20-OLinuXino-MICRO and A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 in the file repository: http://files.devuan.org/

So now you have this option to run on OLinuXino!
