Topic: Support for Teensy 3.2 ??

Has anyone tried RemoteXY with a Teensy 3.2 and ESP8266 module ?

TBH I don't think it matters what the host is actually specified as, so long as the code runs...

TIA

FOUND MY ANSWER - No support for the Teensy Board, does not compile, and produces lots of error messages.
There must be lots of stuff in RemoteXY modules that is tailored to specific boards.

Everything works with smoke - if you let it out, things stop working....

Hello, I don't know this board, but it shouldn't be too hard to get RemoteXY to work with it, as long as it can use arduino code... What are the errors ?

I have found the answer to this issue...

The Teensy has 3 hardware serial ports, so the first line of the RemoteXY connection settings

#define REMOTEXY_SERIAL Serial   

... has to define one of them. By changing the board to the Arduino Micro, I get

#define REMOTEXY_SERIAL Serial1

... and it compiles without error.

Some advantages of the Teensy range....

More memory
Larger EEPROM space
Faster Processors
Outputs are 3.3V so will talk to ESP8266 without level shifting
Inputs are 5V tolerant
Interrupt capability on all digital pins
3 Hardware Serial Ports

Only disadvantage is the price if you want them fast.
