Major components in this repository:
- py/ -- the core Python implementation, including compiler and runtime.
- unix/ -- a version of Micro Python that runs on Unix.
- stm/ -- a version of Micro Python that runs on the Micro Python board
with an STM32F405RG.
- stmhal/ -- a version of Micro Python that runs on the Micro Python board
with an STM32F405RG (using ST's new Cube HAL drivers).
- stm/ -- obsolete version of Micro Python for the Micro Python board
that uses ST's old peripheral drivers.
- teensy/ -- a version of Micro Python that runs on the Teensy 3.1
(preliminary but functional).
Additional components:
- unix-cpy/ -- a version of Micro Python that outputs bytecode (for testing).
- tests/ -- test framework and test scripts.
- tools/ -- various tools.
- tools/ -- various tools, including the pyboard.py module.
- examples/ -- a few example Python scripts.
"make" is used to build the components, or "gmake" on BSD-based systems.

The STM version
---------------
The "stm" part requires an ARM compiler, arm-none-eabi-gcc, and associated
The "stmhal" part requires an ARM compiler, arm-none-eabi-gcc, and associated
bin-utils. For those using Arch Linux, you need arm-none-eabi-binutils and
arm-none-eabi-gcc packages from the AUR. Otherwise, try here:

$ cd stm
$ cd stmhal
$ make

You then need to get your board into DFU mode. On the pyboard, connect the
3V3 pin to the P1/DFU pin with a wire (on PYBv1.0 they are next to each other
on the bottom left of the board, second row from the bottom).
Then to flash the code via USB DFU to your device:
