Topic: possible with Arduino MKR1000


I would really like to use remotexy, but i cant make it work with my mkr1000. i thought maybe i could change a few things and it would be pretty similar to a ESP8266 but it doesnt work.

Does anyone know how to make it work ? Or is there no way it would be possible with the MKR1000?

Oh, this is ARM! We have not tested RemoteXY with ARM.

Re: possible with Arduino MKR1000

I don't have such board, so I can't test it for you. But this is how I would try to do it:
- generate the code of your project with following settings:
     Connection: Wifi access point
     Device: NodeMCU v2
     Module:On board ESP8266
     IDE:Arduino IDE

- replace
#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <WiFi101.h>

Then you will also need to change some lines in the remotexy library modules/esp8266wifi.h
- as Wifi101 doesn't know WiFi.softAPdisconnect, WiFi.mode & server->setNoDelay , put them in ifdef's (Wifi101)
- replace WiFi.softAP with beginAP

Have a look at https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/WiFi101BeginAP to see if other things are necessary

And when it works, post your results here!


Re: possible with Arduino MKR1000

That would be very interesting but I have far to less knowledge about these things. I'm doing a project for school right now and I don't have too much time left so I just bought a arduino leonardo with a esp-01 module.

Maybe I'm gonna try this after my project.

But thank you very much for your help.
