Last week we held our fourth Zerynth Live Support session on YouTube. It was another great opportunity for everyone to learn about IoT development from the Zerynth experts, and to see questions from the Forum answered live.

This time, we discussed Project.yml, and ESP32 boot up requirements. So, to be more precise, this time we answered two questions:

  • What is project.yml for?
  • Boot fail, if MISO of SPI0 is connected on boot

The whole Live Session is presented by our embedded software engineer, Karim Hamdy. Here’s what he had to say about the first question:

Normally, when you create a new project in Zerynth, a lot of files will be created. Certainly, one of them will be the main Python script. But an interesting file that this project creates is the project.yml. So what does this file essentially mean?

Essentially, a project.yml file is a configuration file. For example, in my “project view,” I can make a new file, and in this project file I can specify certain configurations that will be injected in both Python and C files.

If you want to learn what else Karim had to say about this, watch the whole session on our YouTube channel:

What is Zerynth Live Support?

If this is the first time you’ve heard of Zerynth Live Support, you’re probably wondering what it is.

Well, it’s just what the name says: a live support session, that we hold on our YouTube channel, every week. First, we take a couple of questions from the Forum, that we think more people would be interested in seeing answered, and learning more about the topic. Then, we answer them live, one by one. We give a general overview of the topic and then go into the specifics.

For example, when someone has asked a question about debugging with Zerynth tools on the Forum, our developer gives a brief explanation of what debugging means. He then moves on to offer information on what type of debugging you can do with Zerynth and gives an example of each type.

So, if you have some question you would like us to answer, head on over to the Forum, and post one. Who knows, maybe we will answer it during our next session.
