Espruino - JavaScript Interpreter for STM32 ARM Microcontrollers

 

Looking for a new powerful development environment to hack together some quick powerful projects? Have a look at the Espruino. It is a  JavaScript Interpreter for STM32 ARM Microcontrollers which will let you get up and running fast because there is no IDE running on your computer. Just connect to the device and start programming. The pricing looks very attractive also.

Thanks for sending in the tip Gordon.

“How do you use it?

Just plug a Microcontroller with Espruino on into your PC, Mac or Raspberry Pi, and start writing JavaScript immediately in a serial terminal (no software is needed on most computers!).

You can easily execute functions after a period of time, or when an input changes state… And when Espruino is working as you want, type save(), and whenever it powers on it will restore itself to the exact same state.

You can even add a bluetooth module and program Espruino wirelessly.

And if you just need an IO board for your PC, Mac, or Raspberry Pi, Espruino can do that too! Just plug it in and control IO lines directly from your application or script by sending JavaScript commands!”
