This is the Micro Python project
The Micro Python project
========================
Subdirectories:
- 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.
"make" is used to build the components.
The unix version
----------------
The "unix" part requires a standard Unix environment with gcc. It works
only for 64-bit machines due to a small piece of x86-64 assembler for
the exception handling.
To build:
$ cd unix
$ make
Then to test it:
$ ./py
>>> list(5 * x + y for x in range(10) for y in [4, 2, 1])
The stm version
---------------
The "stm" 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:
https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded
To build:
$ cd stm
$ make
Then to flash it via USB DFU to your device:
$ dfu-util -a 0 -D build/flash.dfu
You will need the dfu-util program, on Arch Linux it's dfu-util-git in the AUR.
